OT: Spurs Hire Becky Hammon as Assistant Coach, 1st (paid) female NBA coach

NBA continues to forge new ground shortly after the NBAPA became the first big four sports union to hire a female chief. Spurs just hired Becky Hammon as an assistant coach, first (paid*) female coach in league history and, if I'm not mistaken, first female coach in any of the Big Four's history.

*Edit: The Cleveland Cavaliers apparently previously had an woman named Lisa Boyer serve unpaid assistant coach in 2002. Previous reports did not mention that.
