    I know we should be focusing on her skills as a player and possible benefits from having her on the sideline, but I just want to say, I've always thought she was fine as hell, not just by WNBA standards but overall.

    "It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)

    Only the Spurs would make a hire such as this. It will definitely be interesting, wish her the best of luck

    Actually the Clippers were the first this year to do this.

    Sure it was summer league, but it's dumb to just chalk it up to the Spurs being visionaries or something.

    Breaking down barriers... I think it's great. If Becky wants to land a HC job in the WNBA some day (or maybe somewhere else), I'm sure this would catapult her chances.

    There was a video of her learning "The Spurs way" a few months ago - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xZP...ature=youtu.be

    Didn't even realize, but as you said, Summer league is very different

    He did just re-marry, so now is the time for him to act up. I think that's the process

    I agree with Chronz though. Once I saw her pic on an article regarding this... I immediately looked up if she was a lesbian and was disappointed to find out she was (as if this somehow improves my odds if she wasn't hahahaha). She's pretty damn fine, especially for her age.

    Well hopefully they don't give her too much power.

    That's pretty dope. I went to a Liberty game back in HS at MSG and fell in love with her instantly. Good for her!

    I felt the same way when the Knicks hire Fisher. I was like, I should focus on his credentials, but FAWK, he is HOT!!!
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    Kudos to Hammon for breaking the barrier, and kudos to the Spurs for having the foresight to do this. I hope the players offer her the respect they would any other assistant coach, that other teams pursue her as they have other Spurs assistant coaches, and that this opens up the door for other female coaches, many of whom are more than qualified for the job.
