Rebecca Lynn Hammon, also known as Becky Hammon, was born on 11th of March, 1977 in Rapid City, South Dakota. She currently works as an assistant coach for San Antonio Spurs.
Former professional basketball player for the United States of America, Becky, has dual citizenship for both Russia and USA. She is probably the most controversial player in the history of USA.
Hammon was interested in basketball from an early age. Though she is only 5 feet 6 inch tall, her competitive performance has made her one of the most successful basketball players in the history of US. In her high school days, she played basketball and was once voted the female class athlete as well.
There is no record of her personal life till now as she is very private. Because of this reason, there is no evidence of her married life, boyfriend, dating as well as her affairs.
As she was hired as a coach by Tony Parker, there are rumors that she is his girlfriend. As she has not married yet, some people also believe that she is a lesbian/gay.
Hopefully, she will find a good, supportive person to be her husband (or wife if that’s what she is looking for).
Let’s go back to her education and choice of career. She joined Colorado State Rams for education. She made many records during her college days and also won Colorado Sportswoman of the Year.

For her achievements, she was also voted into Euroleague All-Star Game. She has reached the height of success through this game. She will not be leaving this sport as long as she could play.
When she was playing for the New York Liberty, she was the favorite player for many in the audience as she was aggressive on the court. During her WNBA career, she has won many awards as well.
She has won WNBA All-Star 6 times. She has also won All-WNBA First Team and All-WNBA Second Team twice. She was also voted one of the Top 15 WNBA Players of all Time as well.
