Former NY Liberty star Becky Hammon made history when she became the first female assistant coach in the NBA, a job she still holds today with the San Antonio Spurs. She even took over the team after Gregg Popovich was ejected in a game some time back.
Now, she gets to run her own team.
Hammon was hired to coach the Las Vegas Aces, which brings her back to the WNBA. The Aces are co-owned by Mark Davis, owner of the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders, whose eye for talent isn't like that of his late father, Al, who founded the Raiders more than 60 years ago.
