As NBA coach, people get on you. But politics, maybe even more so at the local level, is nasty on a very personal level. I have a thick skin, but I don't want to deal with it.
It's hard to be successful over the long term if you're not unified and there's not that synergy between coach and front office.
When 'Sports Illustrated' came out with their 50 most fashionable people in sport, that fact that I wasn't on that list is a travesty.
There are serious issues of inequality and injustice in this country... I stand with those opposing such bigotry.
I really think the people I run into in the NBA, whether it's the front office side or in coaching, everybody wants to work in an atmosphere where everybody's pulling in the same direction.
I applaud the professional athletes using their platform to voice their opinions.
