  • No way should she be the coach. I don't think we would be talking about this story if it was anybody else. There's plenty of coaching jobs available without her trying to disrupt the NBA coaching ranks.

    • What is she disrupting? She has been putting in the time, as a die hard spurs fan who has seen her with the team from day one, I have zero issue with her hopefully taking over when pop is done.

    • @YoungBae 518 lots of talent on kings that needs to be harnessed but nah she is good. I actually like her and saw her from day one as a spur and wouldn’t mind her taking over when popovich retires

      musicvideos2695musicvideos26955 days ago
    • @musicvideos2695 She can be on the Kings next season, straight up. Fox would be a superstar undr the tutelage of a fellow PG as coach.

      YoungBae 518YoungBae 5185 days ago
    • Sorry but we aren’t trying to ruin her before she even starts lol. She is staying with my Spurs and would love her taking over pop when he retires

    • You kinda sorta sound dumb you know. So basically before she got there Spurs been to the finals every year? 🤔🤔🤔🤔

  • If you can't get publicity by winning on the court you have to get it other ways. Still, you must be pretty desperate if you're going to hire a woman coach.

  • I'm offended by this I am an actual trailblazer and to say someone of this stature can do my job not knowing how hard it is to blaze trails don't call somebody a trailblazer unless they've actually cleared any trails in their life

  • If anyone deserves to be Head Coach of Spurs, it's Becky. Pop has a great eye for talented people so it's no surprise he embraces Becky. The state of my Spurs team is a challenge now but with those young guys and hopefully Becky taking over after Pop leaves, things will get better.
