About time: Don Nelson out as coach of Golden State Warriors
CSNBayArea.com cites two sources in reporting that Don Nelson is set to step down as head coach of the Warriors. Keith Smart will take over duties at the start of training camp. Smart is a longtime assistant coach in Golden State.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Finally, Don Nelson is out as coach of the Golden State Warriors. Frankly, it’s time.
For too long, he’s run the Warriors as his own private fiefdom. For too long, he has wrecked relationships with young and old players. And for too long, his antics have turned off the team’s loyal fans.
The club has new owners. Nelson is out. Veteran assistant Keith Smart is in. Look for Smart to energize his young, talented team. And look for the Warriors to finally start resembling a professional sports franchise.
