To celebrate "International Women’s Day," the Road Trippin' Podcast released audio of San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan's thoughts on Spurs Assistant Coach Becky Hammon.

In it, Duncan explained how much of an impact Becky has on the team including how when she spoke, the player's and staff listened.

She's great. She's one of our coaches. She was great at her role, she knows basketball.
And that's all you kind of want from a coach. Someone that knows what they're talking about.
She knows her stuff. She did it the right way. She did what she was asked to do. When she interjected, people listened.

Duncan's praise about Hammon is spot on.

She has been a pioneer in basketball for her accomplishments and continues to prove her worth with the Spurs. And at the rate she is climbing up the NBA ranks among possible future Head Coaches in the league, it is only a matter of time before she gets the right offer and makes her own path and continue to make history.
