And at the guy who said Westbrook would get Pop fired. That's the difference between Pop and most the other coaches in the league... the franchise supports him over any player.
Not ANY player. I'm sure if he ruffled the feathers of a young stud Duncan, he might not have survived it. Duncan is very coachable so it doesn't matter, but Pop never really pulled Duncan like he had a TP or Ginobli.
