Gregg Popovich is Irate with Zaza Pachulia's Foul on Kawhi Leonard That will Force Him to Miss Game 2Read Now
If you haven't already, watch this:
Love the savagery by Pop, what do you expect, though, the guy is a straight shooter. He thought the play was dirty and he let his thoughts be known. Pop was dead right too, I mean obviously no one besides Pachulia truly knows if he did it on purpose, although when you got a track record like Pachulia has it's hard to ignore what he's capable of. It did spark the Warriors comeback and completely put a hault to the Spurs momentum. If Mike Brown called for Pachulia to take him out it was a genius move, even though it is very fucked up to hurt the opponent to beat them.
Now, I'm seeing people say Popovich has no right to complain because Bruce Bowen, who played for Pop like 15 years ago used to do the same shit. Except back then it wasn't against the rules to do that and it was more widely accepted. Now there's rules against it and it's viewed dirty regardless.
Kawhi is officially ruled out for game 2 and the Warriors officially are going to cake walk to a sweep. It looked like the Spurs were going to make this an interesting series, but now all hope for that is gone with Kawhi being out. If I was Pop I'd be fucking pissed too, you're about to win game 1 on the road against the best team in the league, and they play dirty injuring your best player in order to beat you, that's just busch league. Typical Warriors, bunch of scumbags on that team with 0 class or respect for the game.
