WATCH: NBA's Popovich Says 'Embarrassing' Trump Casts 'Surreal Cloud' Over US
Longtime San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich took aim at President Trump in Sunday's postgame press conference.
Popovich compared the "weird night" on the court that saw his team lose the NBA Western Conference Finals 113-111 to Golden State, to the way the country is being run.
"[It's] like trying to figure out the presidency," Popovich, 68, said. "To this day, I feel like there's a cloud - a pall - over the whole country in a paranoid, surreal sort of way."
Without naming Trump, Popovich said his criticisms have nothing to do with the Democrats suffering losses in 2016, but instead "how one individual conducts himself."
Popovich said the president is embarrassing the United States, and is a danger to what the country stands for.
He said Trump is narcissistic in the way he treats every day "like a game show," adding that Trump's claims that his agenda is meant to help the public are a "ruse."
