Les Carpenter’s view in The Guardian is deeply flawed. Carpenter asserts that Hammon’s position on the Summer League sidelines was “The San Antonio Spurs’ experiment of having the NBA’s first female assistant run [the] team in the rookie league.” This presumes that the Spurs care about conducting such social experiments with their staff. Hammon has […]
