    Read the other threaad. Its too unbelievable that pop or anyone would on a coach like the article. This is a pr spin.
    That or it's a former Spurs staffer who had a grudge. I can't imagine anyone currently with the organization saying such things about any current staff member, even one given permission to interview for a head coaching position elsewhere.

    Yeah the Spurs have never talked about anybody when it comes to coaching. Pop was defending Brett Brown to the media after going like 10 and 72. And now all of a sudden we are going to say negative about a woman who could become the first female coach in NBA history? That makes zero sense. This is Portland throwing against the wall and hoping nobody looks too hard into this. They hired a rapist over Becky and are now having to justify why.

    I hope Pop comes out and says nothing but glowing things about Becky to shut up these bs rumors. Too many people/organizations have been taking shots at the Spurs and it makes one wonder if they ever respected us in the first place

    well said and 100% correct

    Our new coach may be Lloyd Pierce......he has a sharp bball mind! Pop loves him..

    My guess is that Pop hasn't told anyone what he plans to do and so the assistants are all weighing their options. Becky may be next in line, but doesn't know when that might be. Pop was supposed to follow Tim into retirement but he didn't follow through with that. Maybe the assistants think he's going to stay there forever.

    Can't imagine anyone with the team cautioning against her. , has any Spurs assistant had a hard time finding a better job? Freaking Jim Boylan somehow didn't have enough bad things a said about him to prevent him getting a full time head gig and he's the guy who forgot to put Kawhi back in the game in the second half.

    Jacque Vaughn somehow went from a second row intern to head coach of the magic after a long career as an uncreative backup who couldn't pass or shoot. He couldn't even make the front row.

    People in the org would talk her up. Because the lower guys all want to advance. Whether that's going with her or moving up the ladder in SA after she's gone.

    And other people in the org would be glad to be rid of her if she wasn't good at her job. Because then there would be no backlash for firing her as an assistant.

    Not claiming she's a coaching genius. It's beyond strange that Pop refused to make her the #1 assistant as far as coaching when he's ejected, but that may be down to Pop's unreliable coaching a en at this stage. If Pop didn't want her around he wouldn't protect Olshey from making that mistake, he's no buddy of his.

    if you believed that bunch of crap, and think also that’s how the Spurs operate,

    then I’ve got some nice ocean front property in Scottsdale to sell you
    fine, take away the Spurs stuff entirely and you're still left with corroboration from other league sources.

    I'll readily admit I don't like her but I am hoping she finds employment elsewhere so she doesn't work here. But you seem to be dismissing it out of hand as though there's the slightest possibility she just isn't the right coach for the post-Pop era.

    I've made it clear I stopped rooting for her the second she didn't take a knee with the team. Was completely inexcusable to me. plus she's not the most qualified and seems just to want to break the threshold of being the first rather than sticking around to build her knowledge under Pop.

    long story short, I want her out so I wish she had gotten the job.

    This is some bull . This is a hit piece orchestrated out of the Portland side; Spurs ranks donít leak garbage like that.

    Wait, I don’t remember that. Was it just her or the whole coaching staff?

    The other coaches did. Everyone did. But she stayed standing next to Pop while crying. Pop gets a pass given who he is and as outspoken as he's been on these issues. Her? Not so much.

    so your contention is that it's absolutely impossible she's rubbed ppl the wrong way around the Spurs organization? Or around the League, as the article states?

    You realize that Portland's owner, a lady, publicly stated she wanted them to be "trail blazers" in hiring the first woman.

    I'm well sourced on all my claims. You just seem to pull your hopes from your ass.

    A lot of his "sources" have been wrong too. I guess his source is the hot dog vendor guy.

    Kind of surprised that she'd care so much about the USA flag and anthem considering she sold the country out to play for Russia in the Olympics to get $$$

    IMO, this says two things:

    1) Pop is indeed retiring. Think about it. Itís going to be a pain to look for new assistant coaches all over again. With Hardy gone, and Becky almost out, who else does he have to take under his wings? Coaching next season will have less purpose.

    2) the next head coach will not come internally. Becky was almost gone. If they were serious about keeping these two, neither coach would look outside. I mean, unless Pop remains for a few more years, which would be insane. Pop allowed his assistant coaches to coach by committee this past season. Iíd assume that was to lessen his workload. Is he really going back to shouldering all the responsibility?

    How does Hardy think heís going to land a head coaching job going from learning under Pop to learning under Ime? This is a big hint for something.
    If you've learned one thing over the past 20+ years of Pop's tenure, it should be that you cannot peg Pop using your own reasoning. Pop has his own timeline and motives, and I can imagine he would be just as motivated by having new coaching talent as having new playing talent. He's a teacher.

    I thought she didn't make the USA team but wanted to compete in the olympics hence why she joined the russian squad. I would have to go back an look all this up because I am not absolutely certain on it.

    I don’t disagree with you. I’m not suggesting my post was anything more than speculation. I enjoy digging into things deeper, and bringing fresh ideas for discussion.

    There's a reason "BeCkY DiDnT GaMEPlaN 2DaY, It wAs TIm" was suddenly a thing when Pop was ejected while Becky was lead assistant for the first time.

    It was literally never a thing before that. It was always the next assistant up after Pop.

    Go on. Find an instance where it wasn't Bud, Messina, etc who took over the nights when Pop was ejected. Suddenly the rules changed when it was Becky's turn.

    Nuh uh. You're going to break glass ceilings when POP says it's time, .

    Brett Brown will take over in San Antonio.

    This is harsh reality.
    Bret took over in the depths of The Process, and did a good job of developing the young players, but was fired for not making the ECFs. Guess what? They still havenít made the ECFs.
