Gregg Popovich is Voting for Don Nelson

by November 08, 2016

On the eve of the U.S. Presidential election, Gregg Popovich was in no mood to discuss politics, and said he’s casting a ballot for Don Nelson.

The San Antonio Spurs’ head coach, like most Americans, is emotionally spent by this highly-divisive and bewildering election.

Pop also talked about his ongoing love affair with Tim Duncan.

Per the Express-News:

Basketball sweethearts: Tim Duncan returned to Spurs Lane on Monday to work out with his old team, prompting a reporter to ask Popovich if he has had much interaction lately with the franchise’s greatest player. […] “Oh sure. We’re like in love,” Popovich said jokingly. “We text all the time.”


Write-in candidate: Popovich, who has been critical of both the Republican and Democratic presidential tickets, was asked if he’s ready for Tuesday’s election. […] “I am,” he said. “Scared to death.”


So who did he cast his ballot for? […] “Don Nelson,” Popovich joked.
