Don Nelson is still living the best life. The former Warriors head coach is living in Maui and growing "Nellie Kush" for himself, friends and family.
On Wednesday, the winningest regular season coach in NBA history joined KNBR 680 and Steph Curry was a topic of conversation.
"When he's got a good look at one and he's got time, he doesn't make it as much as when there's guys all over him," Nelson said. "And then moving to his left, with a guy right on his shooting hand, it doesn't even affect him. He's just such an amazing player and so creative and such a wonderful guy.
"We're so happy to have him in Golden State. I'm just so proud that we drafted him and he's there and everything worked out just like we had hoped."
Speaking of drafting him -- did Nelson think Curry would be available at No. 7 overall?
"Oh I never thought we'd get him. It took Minnesota drafting three point guards ahead of him," Nelson joked.
It was actually just two point guards -- Ricky Rubio at No. 5 and Jonny Flynn at No. 6.
If the Warriors had the second overall pick in 2009, Curry would have never slipped as far as he did.
"I would have taken him No. 2 that year," Nelson declared. "I would have taken (Blake) Griffin first and then I would have taken him above everybody in the draft."
Griffin did in fact go No. 1 overall, but he missed the entire 2009-10 season because of a knee injury.
Hasheem Tabeet went No. 2, James Harden went third and Tyreke Evans was the No. 4 pick.
