Congrats to Ms. Becky Hammon for becoming the NBA’s first full time female assistant coach. (They must have seen our previous post “Who’s Missing?” in the athletic world.)

“Hammon called her role as a pioneer “a tremendous honor.” But, she added of Popovich (Spurs Coach): “Honestly, I don’t think he gives two cents that I’m a woman. And I don’t want to be hired because I’m a woman.” The important point, Hammon said, was, “I’m getting hired because I’m capable.” (NYT).

Breaking boundaries because she is qualified and happens to be a woman not because she is a woman who happens to be qualified.
