Video: Watch San Antonio coach Becky Hammon learn the Spurs way

The San Antonio Spurs recently announced the hiring of WNBA star Becky Hammon to the team as an assistant coach, making her the first woman to ever have this position in NBA history.

And while it may have come to a surprise to many, NBA history was in the making as prior to the announcement, as she was already observing and watching from the sidelines during Spurs games and practices last season.

Check out video of coach Hammon in action with head coach Gregg Popovich at the Spurs’ practices, helping players like Danny Green, where you can see she is a natural.
