So I say this with a smile on my face as a Happy Warrior in the battle against cranky old liberals.
Coach Pop, stick with basketball. It’s what you know. It’s what you do best, In fact, you do it better than ANYONE I have ever seen.
Of course, you are entitled to your opinion. Everyone is. But….
When you said, “I’m a rich white guy, and I’m sick to my stomach thinking about it. I can’t imagine being a Muslim right now, or a woman, or an African American, a Hispanic, a handicapped person. How disenfranchised they might feel. And for anyone in those groups that voted for him, it’s just beyond my comprehension how they ignore all of that. My final conclusion is, my big fear is — we are Rome,” it sounded like you were trying to stir the pot.
Here’s the deal, Coach – President Obama isn’t happy about this at all, right? He campaigned hard for Hillary, and said some pretty rough stuff about Donald Trump. But since the election he has been gracious as he has offered to help ease the transition. Classy is the word.
You kinda sound like a sore loser, and that surprises me a bit.
Usually after a loss you will get mad and say some harsh things. In fact, you have the reputation of being the hardest post-game interview because of your somewhat nasty attitude. Nasty is your word by the way.
But more often than not, your harsh words are directed at your own team. Typically, you will let them have it for the way they played the game which ended up costing you (and them) a victory.
I think that’s who you need to be angry with – your own team, the liberal democrats. The liberal democrats have brought this loss upon themselves by their words and how they have governed for the last 8 years.
“Republicans can come along, but they are going to have to ride in the backseat,” – President Obama.
“Elections have consequences. I won, get over it,” – President Obama
“You didn’t build that,” – President Obama
“I think at some point you’ve made enough money,” – President Obama
“I put about half of Donald Trump supporters in a basket of deplorables – irredeemable,” Hillary Clinton
Yes Pop, your team lost more than other guys won.
In 2009 the Democrats owned everything in government – the Presidency and BOTH houses. Look at the numbers today. Pretty bad for your team. And the Republicans didn’t do that to you. The Democrats (your team) did it to themselves.
It’s probably time you gather them in the privacy of the locker room and talk about a new strategy. Maybe spend more time watching film so they understand their opponent and target audience a little better.
Meanwhile – with all due respect I say as a fan of yours – stick with your job of bringing home another NBA championship. All of us are united behind you on that one.
I’m still smiling,
