Pau Gasol: “Becky Hammon can coach NBA Basketball. Period.”

Pau Gasol: “Becky Hammon can coach NBA Basketball. Period.”

Gasol recently eviscerated any argument that women aren’t qualified to coach in the NBA. As previously mentioned, Becky Hammon is set to become the first female to interview for an NBA head coaching position as part of a long list of prospects for the vacant Milwaukee Bucks job. In the world we live in, that will naturally bring out some naysayers, but if anyone wants to doubt her qualifications, Pau Gasol is here to set the record straight. In an open letter in The Players’ Tribune, he eviscerated a few “misconceptions” about female coaches in the NBA, and not from your average...

Pau Gasol Eviscerates Arguments Against Women Coaching in the NBA

The long-time star turns over common objections in a detailed and passionate Player’s Tribune piece.

The piece comes in response to conversation around San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon potentially interviewing for the Milwaukee Bucks head coaching position. Gasol does not advocate for Hammon; he depicts the very idea as “patronizing”. Instead he systematically debunks common arguments against women coaching from his perspective as a player, revealing a few...

Open Thread: Chinese nicknames for Spurs players

Kawhi is simply 可爱 Multiple Spurs, and other players of note, have been given some unusual nicknames in China. For example, Tim Duncan, our Big Fundamental is known better in Asia as “The Stone Buddha.” While some make sense, like calling Tony Parker “The Little French Sports Car,” others leave conclusion to the imagination. For example, in China, Pau Gasol is labeled simply “Sister-in-law”. By the way, in China, Kawhi is “cute,” but check out the pronunciation: 可爱.

Open Thread: Pau Gasol doing what Spurs do in the offseason

The Spaniard visits the Methodist Children’s Hospital. There will be basketball camps. The various Spurs players host them as well as make appearances at many. There will be pick up games. We’ve seen footage of Kyle Anderson hooping it up back on the east coast. There will be hours spent in the weight room, on the court, and in the gym preparing for the next season. And there will be those moments that remind San Antonio just how special the Spurs are. Last week, Pau Gasol took a trip to Methodist Children’s Hospital and visited some of the patients. He brought gifts, but more...

Which draft picks could receive most scrutiny?

Which draft picks could receive most scrutiny?

The Memphis Grizzlies may not hear great feedback if they pick these prospects. The Memphis Grizzlies fanbase can be both easy and hard to win over. If you do something they like immediately in your tenure, they’re automatically on your side. However, any glaring flaw or mishap, and it’ll take a while to win them over. Everybody loved Pau Gasol when he was a rising star and the franchise’s first All-Star. Towards the end of his tenure, he received harsh scrutiny for being “soft.” Of all franchise cornerstones, Rudy Gay was probably the least liked — as his pouting and inability...

NBA 2018 Mock Draft: Memphis Grizzlies picking at #3

NBA 2018 Mock Draft: Memphis Grizzlies picking at #3

If the Grizzlies fall to the third pick, who should they pick? Over the Memphis Grizzlies’ franchise history, the third pick has been solid for them. They’ve technically owned it once, and it was in Vancouver when they selected Shareef Abdur-Rahim — the face of the team in its Canadian tenure. They’ve traded for the third selection twice, snagging Pau Gasol (the first face of the Memphis Grizzlies) and OJ Mayo (awesome early in his career). If the Grizzlies got the third pick, could they experience success there yet again? With the way this draft class looks, it’s certainly...
