Becky Hammon Becomes NBA's First Paid Female Coach


Becky Hammon has officially changed the face of the NBA forever.



Fresh off of winning the 2014 NBA Championships the San Antonio Spurs decide to make another power play. The NBA franchise have announced they have hired Becky Hammon as the first PAID female assistant coach in NBA history! This is so dope to us!


Becky is definitely certified to do the job too. She has played with the San Antonio Stars for eight seasons and is a six time WNBA All-Star. So basketball is nothing new to her! When asked how she felt about making history in such a major way the new NBA assistant coach beamed with pride and stated:

"I'm just incredibly grateful, obviously, to the Spurs organization and Coach Pop and (Spurs General Manager R.C. Buford)," Hammon said. "The whole staff really just from day one has been so great to me. I'm a little overwhelmed right now, to be perfectly honest."

 It is so exciting to see so many women making history and breaking barriers. It is definitely inspiring us to dream bigger and strive harder for what we want in life.  We can't wait to see Becky on the sidelines when basketball season starts back up!



Side SASS: The first official woman coach in the NBA was Lisa Boyer but she wash't paid! Shady!
