A legendary NBA head coach had a blunt message for President Trump earlier this week.
The NBA is getting ready to start its 2020-21 season. The league began preseason play this weekend after teams reported for training camp at the start of the month. The regular season is scheduled to begin in about a week.
Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs are coming off a disappointing season, but they’re hoping to bounce back in 2020-21.
The iconic head coach has not shied away from criticizing President Trump. In fact, Popovich appears to enjoy it. Earlier this week, Popovich had a blunt message for the outgoing United States president.
Popovich called Trump a “Barnum & Bailey” and said that he hopes Trump doesn’t mess things up too much on his way out of the office.

This is far from the first time that Popovich has criticized Trump. He only has a couple of weeks left to do it with Trump in office.
The Spurs, meanwhile, are scheduled to open the 2020-21 regular season on Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Tipoff between San Antonio and Memphis is set for 8 p.m. E.T.
