I don’t think anybody will ever accuse San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich of not speaking his mind, so it shouldn’t come as much shock that the veteran NBA coach let loose Saturday evening after one of his star players was nearly seriously hurt by a cameraman after taking on the Miami Heat.

Point guard Tony Parker, who banged his hand on a cameraman would walk away without any linger issues (at least, that’s what we believe as of today) though that didn’t stop Pop from ripping the cameramen and their proximity after the game:

Pop: “Somebody of stature is going to get seriously hurt by one of those guys, and then all hell will break loose.”

He has a pretty valid point. The cameramen are incredibly close to the floor and players are falling into/crashing on them quite often. All it’s going to to take is an ill-timed step and somebody is going to come away with a nasty high ankle sprain or worse.
