Nellie Could be Back

I was reading last week and my boy Marc Stein says Don Nelson is looking to get back in the game.

Nellie has nothing to prove. He’s a Hall of Famer. His record as a player, coach, and executive is stuff people in the industry hope to achieve.

Nellie quit on the Mavs last year. My sources tell me on the low, Nellie and Mavs owner, Mark Cuban, had enough of each other.

Well, Nellie got millions to step aside and this “Godfather” sham title. Money can’t buy you happiness, but it will pay for the search. (I can’t take credit for that, I heared that at a Prince concert.)

Something happened in Dallas that didn’t happen at Nellie’s last rebuilding jobs when he left… the Mavericks organization didn’t fall off the map. They did in Milwaukee and Golden State.

The Mavs are thriving. Avery Johnson has been named NBA Western Conference Coach of the month three times. The Mavericks are finally playing some team defense. The kid Nellie wanted to trade, Devin Harris, is a key player.

All in all, Cuban won in breakup with Nellie. You can’t call him some meddling owner because his Mavs look like a team ready to play for the Western Conference title.

They finally look like they are surviving without Steve Nash. Nellie never got over losing Nash to the Suns.

So, Nellie could be back in the game as a coach on the West Coast according to the Stein Line. Seems Sacramento and Golden State may want Nellie to run things on the floor.

Either team would be lucky to have him on the sidelines. Nellie can still win in this league and win big.
