I mean, if Popovich is determined to let Tim Duncan "jump the line" (as he appears to be), then she might as well start looking elsewhere.

Pacers are reportedly considering several candidates. So, not to be completely pessimistic, but at what point do 'we' not consider Hammon being on the big list as a "token interview" when she inevitably doesn't end up landing the job? Would she simply just have to be announced as a final candidate for there to be no outcries of it, even if/when she doesn't get the job anyway?

The thing is, she's been a Pop assistant for years now. Pop's assistants get interviews. She shouldn't be considered a "token."

The Pacers fire their head coach over lack of postseason success; with such unreasonable expectations, I have little expectation that they will treat their prospective coaches any more reasonable or fairly. Laughing Still better than a team that snubs a coach with experience, Summer League success, and praise from players, for the new guy who has none of those.

Unfortunately, even IF she makes the final list and actually gets the job, to many she will still be considered just a token, a demographic filler, an equal opportunity rep. Her skill, experience, accomplishments and accolades won't be enough to convince them otherwise.

I disagree. It's up to us to challenge the narrowminded bigots.

When someone has already made up their mind about you "come hell or high water" no amount of "proof" will be enough. Better to say %$#@ them and keep striving to be the best you can be for yourself.
