The chaos in Golden State is so prevalent at this point, that these incidents are simply par for the course now: “After practice at the Reebok Sports Club in Manhattan, Ellis, Jackson and guard Acie Law were sitting on a bench preparing to leave when Nelson walked by. Ellis asked Nelson a question. ‘Coach,’ Ellis said. ‘Why do I get blamed for everything?’ Nelson replied, ‘What have I ever blamed you for?’ ‘For everything,’ Ellis replied calmly. ‘For everything. For people not knowing the plays. I didn’t do this. I didn’t that.’ Nelson waved both hands at Ellis, as if to brush him off, and walked off shaking his head. ‘See,’ Ellis said. ‘That’s why I won’t do it. I just won’t do it.’ It is unclear what Ellis was saying he won’t do, or what blame he was referring to as Ellis declined to comment afterward.”
