SportsPulse: USA TODAY Sports’ Jeff Zillgitt examines the latest example of the NBA being a league that encourages its players and coaches to speak up and use their platform, this time in the aftermath of the riots at the Capitol building.
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is rarely ambiguous.
You know where he stands.
And he made it clear on Tuesday he supports a second impeachment of President Donald Trump.
“The fact that there’s going to be an impeachment beginning tomorrow is the least that we can do,” Popovich told reporters. “I don’t have a lot of faith that the 25th Amendment is going to be invoked. This impeachment will say a lot. If anything, it will bring people together rather than be divisive. It will bring people together who may have thought a different way and realize what Trump can really do and what he really is. So I’m all for it. It’s a good move.”
