It's possible he feels that the players were thinking too much last season rather than just going out there and playing.

"I'll have five plays which will have three different looks each," a relaxed-looking Nelson said at the Warriors practice facility Thursday. "I'm going to be very simple. I'm not going to overburden them with too many plays or too much thinking."
