Coach Don is back in the GSW

by The Cavalier on August 30, 2006 · 17 comments

As you may well know by now, Warriors GM Chris Mullin has brought back his old coach, Don Nelson, to lead the Golden State Warriors into battle.

Don was last seen being pushed out (our read) of Dallas – his return to the GSW is somewhat of a surprise, mainly because nobody expected him to return at all.

Local columnists are unimpressed and/or out of their minds with unrealistic expectations, and we have to agree with the former – this seems like a move made out of “well, we have to do something.”

Thing is, everyone assumes the Warriors should be good because they closed out the 04-05 season by doing well in their last 25 games or something. Then they stunk all last year – you tell us what that means.

Seriously, tell us. We’re tired of talking about this non-move, so fill up the comments with all kinds of Coach Don concepts and designs while we wax prolific about Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.

Specifically, this is our old boy Dr. Nassif, and dude will hook you up with a serious nose job, or if you have an actual rhino, he’ll put plaster all over it right there in the middle of Beverly Hills.

They call it the Rhino Plastering Festival, and only the super rich and famous know about it. It’s all about getting freaky and eccentric out here, and that starts with plastering rhinos.

(GSW NOTE: Baron Davis is a Knick, in heart if not in actual team membership.)

Damn it you people, say something about Coach Don.

All I can think about is the awesome seats Nassif must get to Kings games because he’s married to a Maloof.

How long do you think it is until the Knicks buy out Don Nelson’s contract?

don nelson will never amount to anything. the warriors will be average. if b diddy is healthy, they’ll win 43+ games. don nelson will teach them to focus on offense and not defense, this will let them outscore ppl, and win games. I also think they will play small ball, and GSW will trade for najera, because of his cool haircut.

0-82. Go Warriors!

I actually think the Warriors will be better with Nellie, but the West is too competitive. Teams like Utah, SAC, the Lakers, and everyone else (except Portland) are all right in that “we’re fighting for the 6-8 spots, hear us roar” zone.

If I read about nose jobs one more time I’m going to start reloading this page every 5 seconds in hopes that the server will crash

Yeah that’ll never happen. Not here. No way. Never.

I thought Don Nelson was already dead. Isn’t there a coach that looks like Don Nelson that died.
Hopefully Chris Mullin is planning to pull an Isiah and just pave the way for a Chris Mullin coached Warriors. Now that would be awesome.

Re: BDiddy being a Knick at heart — I said the same thing all last season. Don’t he, Starbury, and Franchise just deserve each other?

you should most definitely write a blog on this.

The quake came about two hours after the U.S. team finished practicing at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences in central Tokyo.
