On 12/30/20, Becky Hammon, in a Lakers/Spurs NBA game eventually won by Los Angeles, made history. When Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was eected after a rant to a ref about a bad call, Hammon took over for him. That made her the first woman to act as a head coach during a game, not only in the NBA, but in all of male professional American team sports.
