Beef Between Baron Davis and Don Nelson?

"I hate losing," Davis wrote. "I play this game to win, and it’s even harder when I feel like I wasn’t able to help my team do that."

Neither coach nor player had been in a talking mood immediately after the loss in Phoenix. "I gave him a much-needed rest" was all Nelson offered when asked about the benching, while Davis muttered an "Ain’t your story" to local reporters as he walked out of the visitors’ locker room.

Davis’ agent, Todd Ramasar, said he and his client wondered why Davis wasn’t in the critical game, at the most critical of times, after carrying such a heavy load all season. [SF Gate]
