Default Don Nelson emerges as Candidate to coach Minny

An unlikely candidate has emerged as a possibility to replace Kurt Rambis in Minnesota -- NBA career wins leader Don Nelson.

In a recent press conference, Minnesota GM David Kahn said he wanted a head coach who emphasized an up-tempo and entertaining style, a description that fits Nelson, whose teams have focused on offense in his over 30 years in the NBA, perfectly.

Nelson, who is 71, dismissed concerns that his age had become a problem during his last tenure with Golden State: "I'm a lifer," he said. "I love basketball. I don't know how else to put it."

He confirmed that he had a 40-minute chat with Kahn last week and the two would probably talk again shortly.

Yeah I don't understand this is like a slap to the face of Goldenstate, not saying they didn't need a change.

Worst possible scenario for Minnesota in my opinion. Not a good coach for a young team.
