Coach Pop Pregame Media Availability - Spurs vs. Celtics

Dec. 15, 2012

(On the kinds of teams the Spurs model themselves after…)
“Everybody knows what organizations have sustained excellence over a long period of time. Obviously Boston is one of those teams. In any good organization it always starts with good solid ownership in my opinion. If you look at good organizations you have really solid ownership that over the years makes decisions or manages in a way that allows the best to come out. After that it’s trying to find people that can work together, be appreciative of each other, feel responsible to each other, and want to do for each other. We have always felt that organizations like the Celtics and the Jazz were at the top of the heap in those kinds of areas over the years. There are other good organizations but, those are the two that come to mind right off the bat when you start thinking about long-term success in that way.”
