This article is more than 4 years old.

Of all the critics who have spoken out against President-elect Donald Trump since Election Day, one of the most vocal comes from San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. The Spurs takes on the Boston Celtics Friday afternoon.

"We live in a country that ignored all those values that we would hold our kids accountable for," Popovich said about Trump's election. "They’d be grounded for years if they acted and said the things that have been said in that campaign by Donald Trump."

Popovich isn't the only NBA coach to take a strong stand regarding Trump.
