NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he is committed to seeing a woman become head coach of an NBA team. In an interview with ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk on Tuesday, Silver said the NBA needs to do more to “accelerate the move toward a woman being a head coach in the league.”And in 20 years they'll be wondering why the NBA gets WNBA numbers. I have to admit, I really don't care, though. I haven't watched any basketball since Michael Jordan retired the second time. It's of zero interest or relevance to me.
Silver said he would make it his responsibility to see a woman become a head coach while he is commissioner.
“I think it is on me to sort of ensure that it happens sooner rather than later,” Silver said. He added that he hopes to see more women officiating in the NBA as early as next season.
