Now that the season is complete, leave it to the freaking Racine Journal-Times to kick up the dust on Don Nelson as Kings head coach.
I don't think I need to outline the reasons why Don Nelson is a BAD idea to coach the Kings. I mean, do I?
- Don Nelson is an offense-minded gimmicky coach on a team currently built to post up, shoot, and play tough defense. Nelson may have worked with Webb and Peja, but not with Artest, Reef and possibly Wells.
- Don Nelson too closely resembles Jabba.
- Don Nelson ain't never won nothing. And unlike Rick Adelman, Nelson ain't ever really came close.
- Don Nelson had much of the same roster second-year coach Avery Johnson now employs. Nelson was a usual contender for the fifth seed. Johnson has his squad in the top three in the entire NBA.
- Don Nelson sucks.
