Pop says some nice things about Melo
I know many don't like the Spurs and some despise them but one thing you can count on is that the team is classy, led by head coach Gregg Popovich.
When asked about if Melo should be on the all-star team, Pop said, "I think we look more at how long a guy has played....(to see) if he's missed most of the season; what kind of season he is having. No, I don't think it will affect it that much.
"He regrets what he did more than anybody. None of us wanted to see it, but he made a mistake. He gets over it. He moves on. He'll be fine, because he's a smart young man and he understands what happened and he knows how he wants to conduct himself. But you've got to put that away and just move forward. I don't think baggage is necessary."
I agree with him that Melo should be on the all-star team.
