As the Spurs named Becky Hammon as an assistant coach on August 5th, 2014; she earns the opportunity to be the first female with a “real coaching” role in NBA history.
NBA fans claim that hiring Hammon could be catastrophic, but Gregg Popovich (head coach for the Spurs) claims that he had no interest in hiring her to make history.
“Pop told me, early on, ‘As cool as it would be to hire you, you have to be qualified, and I have to make sure you’re qualified,’” Hammon said. “It could be catastrophic if I wasn’t qualified, and then it sets the whole thing back.”
In spite of all the efforts Popovich has made to make hiring Hammon seem normal, there is no way around how significant the opportunity is for her.
“Obviously, the (historic first) is great, and it’s a tremendous honor, but I think the bigger point is I’m getting hired because I am capable, because of my basketball IQ and stuff that they’ve seen in me personally.” added Hammon.
With 16 seasons in the WNBA, Hammon is in the final season of her WNBA career. The last eight seasons were spent in San Antonio, where she has had the opportunity to be around Popovich and the Spurs.
“I know I’m just thrilled for the opportunity to coach these unbelievable athletes and, from what I’ve known, unbelievable people,” stated Hammon.
What do you think about this opportunity? Will Hammon be able to excel in the job she was hired for? Or should the NBA stick to male coaches? What is your opinion?

As you heard last week, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have joined forces and dropped a surprise remix of “Flawless” Sunday morning around one a.m. This new single has left the rap blogosphere and twitter completely blown away. What stood out the most to fans is Beyoncé’s verse, “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator,” giving an ending to the infamous elevator tussle between Jay Z and Solange. Then Nicki comes in reminding the world that she herself is hip-hop’s Queen Bee, she recalls the fire that she spat at the end of Kanye’s “Monster” dropped four years ago; and she declares herself as “the queen of rap, slaying with Queen Bey.”
Nicki also dropped her new single Monday morning “Anaconda,” bringing back “Baby Got Back,” dropped in ’92 by Sir Mix-A-Lot. The new single is already trending on Twitter with the hashtag, #AnacondaOnITunes. Early Monday morning the song was No. 4 on iTunes and NO. 1 Hip Hop/Rap. What do you think about both mixes? Is it possible that Nicki has taken over the Hip Hop world?
After spending six years in prison, Remy Ma was released on August 1st, and she is back to get revenge. Remy already released her first song: “They Don’t Love You No More (Remix).” Originally a DJ Khaled track that featured Jay Z and Meek Mill.
As rumors began, it was said that Remy was dissing Nicki Minaj in her verse, “I listened to your CD/ Damn, you really wanna be me/ Don’t care if your name buzzin’, you know who the queen be.”
Even with all of the talk, Remy cleared things up in an interview with Funkmaster Flex, she precisely gave love to a lot of women who are in the rap game today, this included Nicki and even Iggy Azalea.
“It’d be dope if we could get a ill chick record,” Remy said. “Me, maybe Iggy Azalea, Nicki, just do a nice little collabo.”
Remy still hasn’t signed with anyone, she isn’t sure where she wants to sign.
“I just know I have so many great songs that I think the world needs to hear. I’m excited. I’m extremely happy. I’m blessed. God gave me another chance to do what I love to do.” She added.
What do you think? Will Remy Ma make it back to the top? Or did she ever leave?
