The Golden State Warriors so far have had a rather forgettable sta to the season with only three wins on their record. Now, Don Nelson and star guard Monta Ellis got into a verbal altercation during a practice.
We get more from San Francisco Chronicle:
Warriors coach Don Nelson and guard Monta Ellis had a war of words during Thursday’s practice in New York.
Ellis kicked off the argument when he asked Nelson: “Coach, why do I get blamed for everything?”
“What have I ever blamed you for?” Nelson asked in response.
“For everything. Everything. People not knowing their plays. I didn’t do this. I didn’t do that,” Ellis said.
Nelson then waved off Ellis and left the practice facility. Ellis refused to talk to media after the spat and his teammates tried to calm him down.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Nelson yelled at Ellis in front of the entire team after he was one of a few players that weren’t quite ready to begin practice on time.
There are only a few teams where this could happen and the Golden State Warriors are defintely one of them. However this got me thinking, who would do have in a fight: Monta Ellis or Don Nelson?
Let’s lay-down the numbers:
Monta Ellis: 6-3, 180 pounds, 24 years old
Don Nelson: 6-6, 240 pounds (esti.), 69 years old
This is defintely a tough one to call since on one hand Nellie could pummel Ellis relatively quickly just by brute strength but Ellis could use his quickness to evade the punches of Nellie.
The location of the fight would probably determine it as well, if Stephen Curry is anywhere around, I would side with Ellis. The pure rage would probably cause him to cold-clock them both. If it’s a street fight, I side with Ellis. If it’s in the boxing ring, I think it’s Nellie.
I’ll leave this one to you, readers of That NBA Lottery Pick.
