Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich continued to be outspoken about race issues when asked about the importance of the NBA celebrating Black History Month.

He stated, "I think it's pretty obvious. Our league is made up of a lot of black guys. To honor that and understand it is pretty simplistic. How would you ignore that? More importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn't figured it out yet.

"It's always important to bring attention to it, even if it angers some people. The point is, you have to keep it in front of everybody's nose and understand that it still hasn't been taken care of and we still have a lot of work to do."
