Don Nelson vs. The Media

by January 23, 2009

Nelson doesn’t think reporters and bloggers have given him a fair shake of late, so he’s going to do something about it: “He has a plan. A radio talk show. A weekly segment, 30 minutes or so, where he’ll take questions from callers. A direct link to the public to dispel the image of a power-hoarding bad excuse of a friend plotting an exit strategy three months after getting a two-year, $12 million contract extension. Look into the radio thing, Nelson tells Raymond Ridder, the team’s executive director of public relations.”
