Spurs star DeMar DeRozan said that he had no problem with head coach Gregg Popovich and assistant Becky Hammon choosing to stand during the national anthem prior to Friday's win over the Kings.
maybe he got told to by Silver or Buford/ownership?"I prefer to keep that to myself," Popovich politely said when asked about his decision to stand during the anthem. "Everybody has to make a personal decision. The league has been great about that. Everybody has the freedom to react any way that they want. For whatever reasons that I have, I reacted the way I wanted to."
