Whoever it is if she's going to coach like Violet Palmer officiates I don't want her in the league.

There won't be any. Just like you'll never see a female NFL head coach or MLB manager or NHL coach. Young dudes in their 20s-30s won't like getting ordered around by a woman. Not saying it's right but it is what it is.

Never. Seriously no one would take her seriously or listen to her. Imagine a woman trying to tell Kobe or LeBron what to do on a court

HOly @hit! That's news to me.

That's too bad. I think she would've made a legit NBA coach.

Here's what I said in another ISH thread on the topic:

It's never gonna happen. Many smart coaches fail in this league when they don't command respect without asking for it.

There's no way players will intrinsically respect a female coach, no matter how effective, experienced, or acclaimed she is.

Put a woman above an NBA player on the food chain and she'll have no chance. It's already hard enough for coaches who never played in the NBA.

I'd say Candace Parker, but I seriously doubt there ever will be. It would be hard to get the respect of your players.

Default Re: Who will be the first female head coach in the NBA?

Is there even any at the college level?

Being an NBA player is almost pre-requisite for becoming a coach these days. Unless daddy's got connections ala Spoelstra.

I dont ever see a woman coach tbh. Not for the fact so much she is a woman. But more so that she will not have played in the NBA and never have experienced playing against the level of athletes in the NBA. Men and womens basketball is very, very different.
