Spain vs Nate McMillan

If Sergio Rodriguez doesn’t get more playing time soon, it might be a bit hard for his coach to travel around Spain in the future: “Journalist friend Quique Peinado from Marca – Spain’s largest newspaper – checked in last week to inform that the newspaper’s website ran a poll asking readers to vote whether Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan doesn’t play Sergio Rodriguez because he has something personal against him. The results … 80 percent voted ‘Yes’. ‘Nate is not the most popular guy in Spain,’ Peinado writes. I asked Sergio about the poll. He laughed loudly. ‘Ah yes, that is the largest paper,’ Sergio said proudly. ‘The poll … I don’t feel that way. Everybody … everybody has feelings. I don’t think he has anything against me.'”
