"That's about the only good thing I've done this year," Nelson said, "and I hope that will continue for (next season). Morale has been good. ... After a tough loss, we come together and have a pretty good practice, and everybody gets along."
A few minutes later, Monta Ellis finished shooting and came to the sideline. He must have left his happy face on the floor. In a tense 2 1/2 minutes, he contradicted pretty much everything Nelson and the Warriors had said about him over the last two weeks. The comments might have been the best defense Ellis has ever played.
"I thought they would trade Marco (Belinelli) because I really don't like him. But I guess he's staying here. Another couple months I have to put up with him."
I've got a lot of years left. I can do eight more years. Are you kidding me? I'm like a spring chicken.
