Perhaps I'm "misremembering " this but I seem to recall a story where Nelson, who would sell magazine subscriptions during the off-season lamenting he was unsure what he would do after he retired to a a particular founding member of this board.

The member suggested he consider taking up coaching at which Kellie originally scoffed at the such an idea.

Today Don Nelson is:
*Considered one of the top ten coaches in history
*2 time all star coach
* 3 time nba coach of the year
* as a coach an hall of fame
*the winningest coach in nba history 1,333
* 1994 fiba world champion head coach.

Nellies coaching career is, a testament to the sort of basketball IQ that's prevalent on this board.

Yes, Nellie learned a lot from us, especially how to bounce the ball high off the rim and still have it fall through the net.

Matty,

You are not misremembering. That memory of Sam's story is the first thing that came to mind when I started reading this thread.
