Default Re: Greg Popovich Agrees That NBA Champions Are Not The "World Champions"

I agree with Pop, It makes no sense to say world champion. Even if the NBA is the premiere league in the world, it's still not the same thing as if it were an actual international competition. It just reeks of arrogance to claim that.

I know a couple of people said that no team can beat the NBA champions...well consider that last year's champions would be without their best player who would be playing for Germany & the champs for two years before that would be lost without their second best player who'd be playing for the Spanish team. It's not that simple.
