Blazers' Damian Lillard gives high praise for Becky Hammon

D. Lillard, B. Hammon

The San Antonio Spurs may have lost to the Portland Trail Blazers Thursday night but before the game tipped off, Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon received some high praise from Portland's Damian Lillard.

Hammon and Lillard were playing some one-on-one on the court and enjoying the moment.

This led Lillard to tip his cap at Hammon following the game for all her accomplishments.

Much respect for this woman! Great win last night #RipRip

Lillard isn't the only NBA player to salute Hammon.

Recently, Spurs' Quincy Pondexter spoke highly of Hammon saying the Spurs are better with her and she has made him a better player.

“Becky has really opened my eyes to see brilliance in basketball comes in all forms. Her love and passion for the game not only makes me better as a player, but the organization better for having her here.”
