Courtney Lee says hiring female coaches is "pivotal move" and check out who he'd choose

I'll be honest. When I see a Memphis Grizzlies player's name in a TMZ headline my body's sympathetic nervous system immediately kicks in and goes to work in attempts to prepare my psyche for something horrible. But while the Grizzlies have a rough and tough reputation, these are quality human beings assembled together in Memphis. A TMZ reporter caught up with Courtney Lee (also SPOILER: Quincy Pondexter appearance!!) and asked him what he thought of female coaches finding a place in the NBA. CLee did us proud and even mentioned Sheryl Swoopes as a woman for whom he'd enjoy playing.
