San Antonio Spurs’ head coach, Greg Popovich, feels that Spurs’ small forward, Stephen Jackson, spends too much of his time on social media juggernaut, Twitter. An accusation Jackson fired back at with a funny response. “Jack’s a pain in the (butt),”Popovich said. “Look at him, all he does is twitters. “He’s twittering some stuff right now that’ll probably get him fined, and then I’ve got to call the league and talk to the league and say, ‘Yeah, I talked to him.’ ” To which Jackson responded. “It’s not Twitter. It’s Instagram.” Oh, well since you put it that way, no big deal. This is a classic case of when your dad yells at you for spending too much time playing “that damned Sega Genesis”, when in reality you’re playing Xbox, because Sega Genesis hasn’t been relevant since the 1990′s…. and your dad is really lame and outdated for having no idea that there is even a difference between the two. Greg Popovich, like many coaches, or people his age, probably doesn’t use Twitter, or Instagram, or even Facebook, but he does know his personnel, and his idea that Jackson was on social media saying/doing something that could get him in hot water with David Stern seems pretty realistic, knowing Stephen. Pop may not know a thing about social media, but he has his players pegged. The post Greg Popovich thinks Stephen Jackson spends too much time on Twitter appeared first on Pass The Pill.
