Becky Hammon leads Spurs to Summer League Championship

Becky Hammon continues to pave a trail for aspiring female coaches, and she is setting records in the process.

The San Antonio Spurs hired Hammon as the first female full-time assistant coach in NBA history. She was also selected to coach the team’s summer league squad in Las Vegas.

The SummerSpurs went 6-1 in the league, only losing the opener to the New York Knicks and then posting six straight wins.

In an interview with NBATV, Hammon stated:

“It was a grind. They’ve been together for 17 days. They really started to jell the last two or three games. They listened, and they played really hard for me. I just really appreciate their attentiveness and alertness. They were tired, but they fought through. So all the credit really goes to them.”

Not a bad way to start.
