Trail Blazers retain Damian Lillard, could hire the first female coach in NBA history?
The Portland Trail Blazers are said to be seriously considering appointing the first female coach in NBA history, which is not too strange.
After the legendary Jason Kidd rejected Damian Lillard’s invitation, the Portland Trail Blazers coach seat is still vacant news status compiled by link V9bet. This is considered a big challenge for managers when their task is very difficult, which is to retain the most important star “Dame time” as well as the goal of rebuilding the team to win the championship.
But one woman accepted the challenge! That’s a name that is not unfamiliar to San Antonio Spurs fans, female assistant coach of Gregg Popovich – Mrs. Becky Hammon.
American newspapers revealed that the 44-year-old woman has undergone interviews with the leaders of the Portland Trail Blazers as well as the Orlando Magic. It is not excluded that she will become the first female coach to appear in NBA history.
Becky Hammon (born March 11, 1977) is a Russian-American former professional player who played in the WNBA with the New York Liberty and San Antonio Silver Stars. During his peak 16-year career, Hammon averaged 13.9 points; 2.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game.
After retiring in 2014, the 1m68-tall female player became the assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs until now. She was highly appreciated by coach Gregg Popovich, with an affirmation of being capable of leading an NBA team.
On December 31, 2020, during the Spurs vs Lakers match, coach Popovich was disqualified after a heated argument with the referee at the end of the second half. It was a moment in NBA history.
However, that honor is not enough for a person who always tries to move forward like Becky Hammon. This woman is determined to get an official coach position in the NBA, but the pressure on a woman to control male students will not be easy, especially for NBA players.
There are currently 4 teams looking for a coach position: Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic and Boston Celtics. Whether Mrs. Becky Hammon can become the first female coach in the NBA or not.
Scottie Pippen Claims to Expose Michael Jordan’s Lies
The disagreements between Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan were pushed to a climax as the legendary No. 33 of the Chicago Bulls exposed the teammate.
Last summer, ESPN released the documentary series The Last Dance starring Michael Jordan. The 10-part movie is about MJ’s career with the ups and downs in the Chicago Bulls shirt and the journey to win 6 championship rings.
The film received great attention from fans and also revealed many secrets surrounding Michael Jordan. However, many insiders were not satisfied with the documentary, including Scottie Pippen.
Two days ago on his personal Instagram, the forward born in 1965 revealed that he would launch an autobiography called “Unguarded”. Scottie Pippen says the book will reveal the truths in the Chicago Bulls locker room, while also uncovering Michael Jordan’s deception in The Last Dance.
Unguarded’s description reads: “Pippen has endured Jordan’s dubious label, he should have earned more than the respect of Chicago Bulls management and the media. Scottie Pippen is the real leader of the Bulls!”
Obviously Michael Jordan would not have had so much glory, if he didn’t have great teammates like Dennis Rodman or Scottie Pippen. However, in 10 episodes of The Last Dance, the role of teammates is evaluated second and Michael Jordan is the most important star.
“I think that movie backfired, it showed a bit of Jordan’s ugly personality. I told MJ I wasn’t happy with that movie and he admitted I was right,” Scottie Pippen replied with The Guardian.
Now that the star who has always been considered a second-best partner of Michael Jordan will officially speak, Unguarded will be officially released on November 16, waiting for the true secrets of Pippen, Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in its heyday.
