NEWS: Why Isn’t Becky Hammon Getting Any Head Coaching Calls?
While San Antonio Spurs Assistant Coaches Ime Udoka and Ettore Messina have been receiving interview requests for head coaching positions, the buzz around Becky Hammon has been minimal. Could that be a blessing in disguise?
The end of the regular season illustrates a clear demarcation in the NBA: 16 teams were consistently strong enough to secure a playoff berth, including the San Antonio Spurs, while 14 other franchises began their offseason early to start examining what went wrong during the 82-game season.
