    I'm gonna bet she gets some coverage but isn't allowed to speak a great deal more, if at all, than other assistant coaches. Coach Popovich runs a tight ship.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Then again, I'm no longer a fan of the NBA after they forced the Clippers owner out. Sorry, but forcing someone to sell their property is not justified.

    She could ask for a better opportunity to succeed. She is going to be transitioning in with a veteran group of champions and a head coach that has the total respect of all of the players on the team. Could be a very interesting situation. I can see the occasion where Pop might get 2x technicals and she would step into the head coach role for a quarter or two. Maybe not this season...but next.

    While I don't condone Sterling's actions, your comparison is RIDICULOUSLY inaccurate. There's no evidence what so ever that Sterling refused to sell anything to black people. It'd be more accurate to say "If you want an example, buy a McDonald's and then be illegally taped in a private setting asking your girlfriend to not bring black people into your McDonald and have that leaked into the media"

    As to Becky, I wish her the best of luck and I'm sure she'll do excellent. In Pop and RC I trust.

    No kidding. Of course, 25 of those pages would be from your side of the aisle.

    I strongly disagree with you here. In the case of the NBA, his racist comments tarnished the brand, and because of that, the NBA has every right to strip him of his franchise, although in the end, it didn't come to that, as Sterling's wife ended up making the decision to sell the team.
