SportsPulse: With another NBA All-Star Game in the books, Trysta Krick and Jeff Zillgitt turn our attention to the playoff push down the stretch.
Former Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson made a legendary appearance back at Oracle Arena on Thursday night and had fun answering questions about the good old days and what he’s been up to since.
Nelson, who coached the Warriors from 1988-1995 and then again from 2006-10, won five championships during his playing days with the Boston Celtics.
He would later go and coach the Bucks, Warriors, Knicks, and Mavs, and was named to the Hall of Fame as a coach. He’s considered one of the top 10 coaches of all time.
Nelson was asked what he’s been up to since leaving the NBA and he had quite a classic answer, as he didn’t hesitate to say: “Yeah, I’ve been smoking some pot.”
