Lakers’ Danny Green says Becky Hammon is one of the five best coaches he ever played for


The assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs Becky Hammon has been receiving high praise by the time she became the first-ever female assistant in the NBA in 2014.

The Los Angeles Lakers sharpshooter Danny Green is the last of many that they had positive words to say about Hammon.

That’s what Green told Mike Singer of the Denver Post:

“Green, a two-time NBA champion with the Spurs and the Raptors, lauded Hammon as a coach. One of the five best he’s ever had, assistant or otherwise, he said.

“It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this is Becky, or that’s our female coach,’” Green said. “It was like, ‘Coach, or Coach Hammon or Becky’, she’s got some good stuff, see Becky about this or talk to her about that.”

Hammon is regularly involved in several rumors on becoming the first female head coach in an NBA team and with many head coach positions being vacant the next off-season, the Spurs’ assistant coach could be in her way to do just that.
