Becky Hammon will likely receive her fair chance as well. “She’s been there; she’s now the longest-tenured assistant they’ve had there outside of Chip [Engelland],” another former Spurs staffer said. There does seem to be a strong amount of pessimism, however, among league officials and those with Spurs connections pertaining to Hammon’s candidacy. “Just because she’s the first female assistant on the front of the bench doesn’t mean she’s the first head coach. There’s just a lot more responsibility, and very few assistants, male or female, are truly capable of moving over to the first chair,” one NBA coaching figure told B/R. “She got pumped up for being the first. It’s a blessing and a curse. It’s a difficult situation to be in.”
