Don Nelson Would Work for Free

Nellie is in a charitable mood these days, something the bean counters in Oakland no doubt love to hear: “Conventional wisdom might have fizzled when Nelson and team President Robert Rowell met last week. ‘I told him that I would like to give the Warriors one more year (beyond the contract) that will cost the team nothing,’ Nelson said. ‘Whether it’s coaching or carrying bags, whatever, it doesn’t matter. I’ll give one more year to say ‘thanks,’ and ‘I appreciate the extension.’ In October, Nelson signed a two-year extension. He admittedly feels this season’s Warriors squad is one in rebuilding mode but claimed his desire to stay an extra year isn’t about wanting to be around when his work with the young players starts to pay dividends.”

    he should just leave! how to destroy a playoff team in 1 yr: kick mullins to curb. dont resign key player that got u to playoffs, BD. sign an injury prone player, maggette. alienate your franchise player, ellis, then play him out of position @ PG. keep players in the dark/doghouse as to when they will play,Crawford, previously Big Al. Dont play draft picks, Bellinelli, Randolph. Refuse to coach defensive schemes and showcase junkball on offensive. He owes the Dubs big time — pay up loser!

    He’s in bed sooo deep with management, of course he wants to stick around and continue to be a detriment to the team.

    Sure, he could work for free and collect his “free” money from the Mavs at some point. Nothing, and no one is FREE!!!

    At least if he worked for free the Warriors would get their money’s worth out of him.
    Worst coach in the NBA.
