San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon accepted Layup4Lauren Challenge, called out Danny Green and Shaq

After Becky Hammon accepted the Layup4Lauren Challenge, she called out one of her players (video via Official Becky Hammon).

WNBA legend Becky Hammon took some time away from her new duties as assistant coach of the San Antonio Spurs to accept the Layup4Lauren challenge on Tuesday as described in the video above (h/t Linda at Digital Media Mafia).

After completing the challenge, Hammon flexed her newfound authority a bit when passing the challenge on to Spurs 3-point shooter Danny Green as well as former NBA player Shaquille O'Neal.

Hammon is just the latest of many current and former WNBA players to acknowledge Lauren Hill on social media. The challenge came in the lead up to today's game between Mount St. Joseph and Hiram in which terminally ill Mount St. Joseph freshman Lauren Hill will have the opportunity to play one last game. The game will be televised and streamed online via Fox Sports.
