The world of NBA has forever changed with the recent addition of Becky Hammon, a veteran in the WNBA, as the new assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs. This is a first for any female to work in the NBA as an acclaimed part of the staff. However, even though it’s a first for the NBA, Becky Hammon is no stranger to basketball. She’s been with the WNBA for 16 years, so that goes to show she knows exactly what she’s doing.
About the recent change, Becky’s been quoted to say, “I’m up for challenges. I’m up for being outside the box, making tough decisions and challenges. … And I’m a little bit of an adrenaline junkie. Throw those all in there and this was the perfect challenge and opportunity.”
Every day is a new opportunity for women to get a foot in the door, so it’s always great to hear news like this. We can already tell Becky’s a great addition to the Spurs team and we hope the best for her!
