Popovich on Hammon: 'She's a special, special woman.'

Gregg Popovich avoided answering any Spurs-related questions Thursday after directing the first day of practice at the Team USA minicamp.

He did, however, make an exception when a reporter asked him about assistant coach Becky Hammon.
"She's a special, special woman," Popovich said. "You know we promoted her again. She's going to be on the front of the bench now, sitting next to me. She's not behind the bench anymore. She's on the bench because J.B. Borrego took the head job in Charlotte. So she's replacing him. That's how much I think of her."

The promotion makes Hammon the first female NBA coach to sit on her team's bench. Popovich said it's a sign of how much the players respect her.

"She knows her stuff," he said. "She's confident. The he-she thing doesn't fit at all. She's a coach, and just happens to be a she. That's it. If it was a he, and more qualified, I would have hired a he. But this she was qualified, and that's who I wanted."
