Did Gregg Popovich take dig at Kawhi Leonard with LaMarcus Aldridge praise?

Did Gregg Popovich take dig at Kawhi Leonard with LaMarcus Aldridge praise?

During pregame media availability, Popovich was asked if he had read the article.

While Popovich has called Trump a "pathological liar", "soulless coward" and even "an embarrassment to the world", Casanova was more likely insulted by the time Popovich said, "I live in a country where half the people ignored all that to elect someone".

The San Antonio Spurs made it to the playoffs for the 21st consecutive season and maintained the NBA's longest streak but after just two games in the first round, they're staring elimination in the face. "Or let's say (the Lakers) somehow trade - Kawhi goes to the Spurs and says 'trade me to LA.' LA trades a whole bunch of their pieces to get Kawhi, they don't now need Paul George to get LeBron". "But that's the first thing that has to happen".

While that quote could be seen as a slight to Leonard, the Spurs have had no answer for the Warriors, who have shot almost 47% from 3-point range in the first two games of the series.

Baboons use barrel to escape Texas research facility, officials say
Researchers mentioned owing to just how much their own body structure is really to individuals, baboons are vital towards the medical care process.

Reading between the lines, Pop may have chosen his words of praise for Aldridge specifically as it could easily be translated as a subtle dig at Kawhi Leonard in the process. He has spent much of his time away from the team in NY, where his medical staff is located.

And it appears that Leonard's disconnect with head coach Gregg Popovich and the Spurs could have an impact on the free-agent class this summer, namely LeBron James.

After going down 0-2 against Golden State Monday night, Pop was spotted leaving Oracle Arena by a couple fans - who gave him a shout-out for a solid Game 2.
