Back in June, the San Antonio Spurs promoted Becky Hammon and that she will fill the spot vacated by James Borrego on the team’s roster of assistant coaches. It was a huge moment for the former WNBA star, but she still feels like she and other current and former WNBA are not getting the proper respect for their accomplishments.

The disrespect isn’t coming from her peers, but more so, regular Joe Shmoe’s on the street and on the internet.

The former WNBA star talked about this fact on a recent “Lynx Off’ podcast, where she stated that great players like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and Magic Johnson can respect what WNBA players are doing, but lesser known people are keeping the disrespect alive and well.
