Virtus Bologna forward Matt Walsh has taken to Twitter to voice a rather “sexist” view on WNBA legend and former Olympic bronze-medallist Becky Hammon’s appointment at the San Antonio Spurs.
Hammon was appointed as a team assistant of the NBA champions on Tuesday evening and it grabbed Walsh’s attention almost right away.
I feel like Jessie Spano just called me a "macho pig". Men's bball and women's bball two totally different sports. No offense intended

Walsh, a former Florida Gator went undrafted in the 2005 NBA Draft and has had spells in Belgium, Slovenia, Greece and Spain as well as Italy where he is playing right now.
