Im interested to see what Don can do with that team, they have some talent there and started to really put it together at the end of last season.

66. I think he stays 3 seasons, grooms a replacement, and manages to take the Warriors to the postseason twice with one series win.

Hes going to have fun with all the young athetic talent, who knows they might be more fun to watch this year if they win a little bit.

How many replacements did he groom in Dallas? Three?

If I am Patrick O'Bryant and Adonal Foyle, I am asking for a trade.

Umm that actually scares me a lil. They beat us a few times last year and even before we struggled against them. But they got a lot of talent there and with a good coach like Nellie I see them making the playoffs .....and being a tough team to beat.

I wish him nothing but the best, except of course when they play the Mavs. I can't say I'm not sad to see him leave, even if he wasn't really involved with the organization anymore.

I think he stays 3 seasons, grooms a replacement, and manages to take the Warriors to the postseason twice with one series win.wow, i totally disagree with that. that's even better than the cavs did when they drafted lebron james (1 postseason in the next 3 seasons and 1 series win). don nelson is no lebron james, and the western conference way deeper than the eastern conference.

I think that Nellie's first move as GS head coach will be to find a way to pry Kevin Pittsnogle away from Boston.

Yay.

Let's see how many of the Nash jock-riders and Finley jock-riders around this joint switch allegiance or apply for dual jock-ridership with the Golden State Coors Drinkers.

That being said, good for Nellie, and I'm looking forward to giving him props when GS plays in Dallas next time.

I caught the press conference on NBA TV...classic Nellie. He got an ovation from the crowd of reporters when he talked about being a cancer survivor and brought up some of the things he's doing to help the cause.

He then said (in so many words) that his bigs suck so get ready for a large dose of small ball. He topped it off by boasting that nobody plays small ball like he does (D'Antoni might have something to say about that).

When asked about his energy level, he reminded the reporter that although he’s 66, he’s a young 66. Then he challenged the guy to go drinking with him tonight if there were any doubts.

Good times.
