Gregg Popovich Goes Off on ZaZa For Being a Dirty Player: ‘Ask David West. His Current Teammate’ (VIDEO)
Spurs star Kawhi Leonard was forced to leave game 1 of the Western Conference finals after Warriors center Zaza Pachulia seemingly slid his foot underneath him as he came down and his ankle twisted in a way that it shouldn’t. That same injury injury forced Kawhi out of a OT game against the Rockets and forced him to miss Game 6 as well.
On Monday, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was done with Zaza and went off on him for what he did to Kawhi and gave a history lesson on his dirty actions.

To sum up Pop: Zaza has a history, it was a bs play, “I don’t give a damn about intent, you still go to jail for manslaughter.”

On top of that, the news came down that Kawhi will indeed be out for Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors.
