Greg Popovich Rumors
Hammon also touched on the willingness to learn from great players. As a coach with the San Antonio Spurs, she learned from legends like Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Greg Popovich. She said that it was not easy walking into a room with those players. “The work is where you get your confidence, it becomes second nature to you it’s about habits,” she said. “Coming in there, being willing to listen, it doesn’t matter if you’re an assistant coach, head coach, best player on the team you always have to be willing to learn and be open minded to growth, critique and you take it all in and you move on. You use what you can use, and then you got to spit out the bones.”

Steve Popper: Pop on possible NBA changes: Whatever they do, they do. I have bigger fish to fry. Mr. Silver will work at that stuff and do his best job with all his colleagues. And I will offer no advice because they’re a lot smarter than me. And I don’t want any out of bounds plays from him.
