Raps/Mavs in Dallas is pretty absorbing ... but hard not to shift focus right now to San Antonio: Gregg Popovich has been ejected in the third quarter and Becky Hammon is now coaching the Spurs — with Tim Duncan as top assistant— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) November 17, 2019
A look into the future tonight: Gregg Popovich ejected, Becky Hammon becomes the first woman to take control of an NBA team in a regular season game. Suspect it won't be long until she's given a head coaching opportunity in the league.— Anthony DiCicco (@DiCiccoMethod) November 17, 2019

Since Becky Hammon is officially listed as first assistant with Pop’s ejection she becomes the first female acting head coach of an NBA team during the regular season. And I can’t think of another time in any of 4 major US sports.— Greg Simmons (@GregSimmonsKSAT) November 17, 2019
The first woman to serve as a head coach of a USA men’s professional sports league.— Lindsey Darvin, Ph.D. (@DrLindseyDarvin) November 17, 2019

With Pop’s ejection, Becky Hammon becomes the first woman to serve as head coach of a men’s team in four major sports, making history. #GoSpursGo— Stephen Anderson (@thestephena_) November 17, 2019
It's a hard for me not to see last night as another ex. of a qualified woman being robbed of a chance at history bc a man with less experience was "more deserving" of the job.— Sarah Digby (@sarahelizdig) November 17, 2019
Timmy has been coaching 3 mos. Becky Hammon has been coaching 5 yrs and is Pop's lead assistant coach.
That's awesome, reporter is more interested in the politically correct angle of the story, Pop just tells it like it is though...— Sean (@SOBJourneyman) November 17, 2019
Chauvinist Pig. Becky is lead assistant and "Timmy" has been coaching for about 15 minutes.— J SooHoo (@j_soohoo) November 17, 2019
I want Becky to get in to get her slice of history but goddam do I love this man. Ask a question, by God he'll answer it. Barely.— Jorge Jettison (@fairelyethereal) November 17, 2019
Her-story ALMOST made as San Antonio’s Spurs coach Greg Popovich gets ejected and lead assistant Becky Hammon assumably took over, becoming the first female NBA coach— thegistnews.ca (@thegistnewsca) November 17, 2019
BUT Pop said after the game that it was assistant Tim Duncan that actually took over 😢
