Default Greg Popovich FTW

Quote:
Ricky Rubio is the most exciting young player in basketball, and as the world looks to understand him, a recurring question following him: How long will he take to get adjusted to America? It's unclear what the question even means, but so far, nobody's given a better answer to that question then Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.



From the Minnesota Star-Tribune (via LBS):

"These guys, they travel around the world," Popovich said of international players such as Rubio and Ginobili. "They're more cultured than we are. Everyone acts like Americans are the ones ... we have sort of an arrogance about us. Like we're the cultured ones? Are you serious?

''Have you watched TV lately? Have you seen what Americans do? How many languages do you speak? And you wonder how they're going to adjust to our culture? I hope they avoid it and keep their own!"

It's never going to endear you when you blanket an entire group like that, ESPECIALLY when it's unflattering and the group is 'America' but by and large... he's right. Turn on the TV and look at all the STUPID shit Americans tune in to watch in droves. Log into a random profile on Facebook and look at the pictures, the person probably has 50 different pics of themself holding up a camera in the bathroom mirror and pursing their lips (yes just about all of us did this when cell phone cameras first came out, the novelty should have worn off by now).

The over-consumption of entertainment media has dumbed people down to straight up fools. Almost nobody knows history, fewer people know any science, poor writing skills are the norm... People basically learn one trade or field they can get a job in, and spend the rest of their time watching Jersey Shore or Kim Kardsashian and then logging in to facebook to gossip about it.

I'm sure this happens in Europe as well but I think America definitely is leading the charge of this nonsense front and center.

Does Pop have a problem with Americans or something? I remember him complaining awhile back regarding why they call it the "World" Series in MLB too.
