NEW YORK (AP) Becky Hammon got her WNBA start in New York and never has forgotten where she came from.

The New York Liberty honored their former star Sunday, putting the San Antonio Spurs assistant coach in their ring of honor at halftime of their game against the Seattle Storm.

"I want you guys to know that I'm from South Dakota, my mom would slap me silly if I forgot my roots. You guys are part of my roots," Hammon said. "I always had so much pride putting that New York Liberty jersey on and representing this amazing city, the greatest city in the world."

Lieberman to become Kings assistant

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) New Sacramento Kings assistant Nancy Lieberman recalls a conversation with Pat Riley a couple of years back when she explained to the Miami Heat executive how much she wanted to keep coaching at basketball's highest level.

"When I said to him, `You know, I really would like to coach,' and he said, `You would?' and he goes, `Nancy, if you want something you have to tell people what you want,'" she said. "I didn't want to be that pushy broad. I just normally assumed: `Well, I'm Nancy, I've been around the game my whole life, they should know this. They should have a crystal ball and know what I want. That was absolutely horrible thinking on my side. The most important thing is that I started to share what my aspirations were - `I'd like to do this.'"
