Spurs hire Becky Hammon as first female assistant coach
Girl power to the MAX. As a Lakers fan, purple and gold bleed through my veins, so naturally, I can't stand the San Antonio Spurs. But when I found out that they hired previous WNBA Star Becky Hammon as an assistant coach, I was excited and incredibly proud of the organization. Way to take a leap forward into a direction that should've been taken decades ago.
I very much look forward to the addition of Becky Hammon to our staff," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said in a statement. "Having observed her working with our team this past season, I'm confident her basketball IQ, work ethic and interpersonal skills will be a great benefit to the Spurs."
