Ellis and Nelson have confrontation at practice

Ellis will be traded soon enough in my opinion. Could there be a blockbuster Ellis/Jackson trade coming?

Quote:
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.

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

I think this is Nelly's fault prob. He starting his retirement way too soon and just riding the wave. Its catching up to him

Nelson is just not right for the coaching game right now. And the team he's got can't make it any easier for him.

He's horrible with Young teams and his team is one of the youngest in the league.

I do acknowledge that there's a very real possibility that Ellis has a case,
but I just hate it when people use the word "everything" in any argument.

I mean, what the hell do you say to that?

You know, out of all the coaches in the league it seems like hands down, Nellie has the most confrontations with players. Its either he's horrible at finding character players or he's an asshole or both.

Im gonna go with him being an asshole.

Theres a reason why Ellis is having problems with him now and its not just Jackson. Fire his ass, get a new coach, keep your quality players.

Don Nelson took a not-to-subtle shot at both Stephen Jackson and Monta Ellis Friday night when the Golden State head coach was asked about rookie Stephen Curry's new role.

"I took him out of the starting lineup because he doesn't have enough tattoos," Nelson told reporters. "In fact, he doesn't have any tattoos. How can the guy start in the NBA without tattoos?

I heard on the FAN this morning that it looks like Nelson will be fired shortly, but I can't find anything on the internet.
