It seems one of Joe Lacob's first official acts as owner of the Golden State Warriors will be to show Don Nelson the door and replace him, on an interim basis at least, with Keith Smart.
But here's the problem... Nelson's focus on offense arguably made players like Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis and David Lee potential fantasy superstars for this season... and even made marginal options like Reggie Williams worth an extended look. Lose that focus and a lot of question marks emerge, like:
- Does the Curry/Monta Ellis backcourt survive a coaching change?
- Who gets the small forward job?
- Does Lee get used as a center? A power forward? Some of both?
- Does Biedrins get enough playing time to be a force in the shot-blocking category?
How does Nelson's iffy status affect your draft plans for this season?
