Here is a compilation of the different comments from players, coaches, etc. We will update as more comments surface on the matter.

Peter Holt, Chairman and CEO of San Antonio Spurs: “I want to be very careful. The league is doing its own investigation and I don’t want to jump the gun. I don’t know the context, but from what I’ve heard it sounds bad and it isn’t like this is the first go-around for him. They’ve got a great team and the problem with it for him, in my opinion — forget the NBA — is that it takes away from the success of the team and the focus on the team, which is unfortunate.”
