Get out the fish ties!
After spending a year and a half “consulting” for the Dallas Mavericks, it appears Don Nelson got tired of hanging around his Hawaii home and watching the Mavs on HDNet. Besides, Nellie has never been able to sit idly by when there are so many polished sidelines waiting for him to stalk up and down.
Reports are circulating today that Nellie has agreed to return to coaching and become the head coach of the Golden State Warriors. Mike Montgomery will take his whistle and a rather large check and go home.
It’s like the early ’90s all over again! The Warriors have a bunch of athletic guys on their roster, and Nellie will almost certainly employ the same run-n-gun show he’s installed throughout his career.
Warriors, come out and play.
