She is a good coach.

As usual, in sports the only real issue is the bottom line, which is tied to winning.

Check out her resume
I just don’t see this working at the pro level

. I can’t see them taking coaching strategy advice from a gender they treat like pieces of meet on a daily basis.

College maybe.

Seems like a formality or PR stunt.

She has been an assistant for what 2 years? Maybe 3?

What is on her resume that makes you think she will be a good coach?
Anyone who works

On top of that, Pop has had her coach the Spurs summer league team. Enough said.

Based on?

If she gets a job congratulations, but what has she done that she deserves a job?
Fizdale was an assistant for 17 years before his first job

Obviously it's difficult, if not impossible, for fans to judge  
Mad Mike : 5/5/2018 9:11 am : link
how good a assistant coach is or is not. That said, Pop is about as good as they come, and him holding her in high regard says a lot to me. It seems pretty unlikely to me she gets this job, but I think it's a positive thing for her to get opportunities.
I think it unlikely that Hammon will get the job now  
MadPlaid : 5/5/2018 9:17 am : link
However, I do think she is on the path to becoming an NBA HC in the future. That would be pretty cool when it happens.

Absolutely in the future, I still think she needs a few more years as an assistant
People with less experience have interviewed for jobs before  
mfsd : 5/5/2018 9:53 am : link
I just hope they’re serious about interviewing her (I believe they are), and not just doing it for PR. Sounds like she has some chops as a coach, deserves to be taken seriously

More than some of these guys who got a chance without even paying their dues as an assistant
My only point is I dont want her to get a job to quick  
nygiants16 : 5/5/2018 10:35 am : link
And struggle and then no one else gives her a chance...

I want to see her get a job when she is ready and succeed, 2jo knows maybe she is ready now

Been the top assistant coach for one of the most respected and winningest teams in the league?

Top assistant? Top assistants sit behind the bench now?
