    SAN ANTONIO - Gregg Popovich is rarely shy when it comes to speaking what's on his mind.

    Monday, while serving up food at a fundraiser for the San Antonio Food Bank, the longtime Spurs head coach turned his attention to the ongoing government shutdown.

    "It's just a shame that so many people are affected by what President Trump and our politicians have done," Popovich said during the eighth annual Champions Against Hunger Dinner at The Grill at Leon Springs. "We all know it's really for no good reason. It's a prop. It's childish. Petty. But everyone else pays."

    Pop also had some thoughts about the paychecks currently being drawn by politicians.

    "It'll be nice if every congressman and congresswoman didn't accept any paychecks while no one else is getting it. That would be pretty cool."

    Coach Pop often finds himself in the national spotlight for his outspoken views, especially when it comes to socials issues and politics, like his calls for President Trump to be more inclusive.
