Uh huh. We've never seen this before.
11/24 UPDATE: Marcus Thompson reports that Nelson may miss as many as 3 games after this Texas road trip, and that's just his preliminary estimate. Tim Kawakami also suggested Nelson would probably miss more than just the two road games, tonight and tomorrow.
Got that 400th Warriors win, sits out, probably lets Roth run the show?
NO! Of course not. Keith Smart is totally his chosen heir apparent.
No doubt about it.
Keith Smart got his ass handed to him by Sid Moncrief in every conceivable way when they took turns running the team in Summer League but I'm sure Smart's deflection counting is now professional grade. Ho boy.
Can we fire this sad sack quitter yet?
Oh yeah and he still wants to screw with his best player:
Warriors coach Don Nelson has been notably effusive in his praise of Monta Ellis
lately, which is no coincidence considering that Ellis’ agent, Jeff Fried, flew
to Oakland last week to meet with the Golden State brass. No long-term solution
was reached; it is believed that Nellie still wants to trade Ellis and the
feeling is mutual. But getting into verbal confrontations with a player and
making him a miserable scapegoat is no way to get full value in a trade. The
situation between Nellie and Monta will be further cooled by Monday’s diagnosis
showing that Nelson has contracted pneumonia. Nelson, closing in on the NBA’s
all-time record for coaching wins, will miss games this week against Dallas and
