Re: I'm tired of this "Nellie made Dirk" stuff.
Avery got out coached by Nellie plain and simple.
Also, any young team struggles in the playoffs ( except this years Warriors?) Look at how long it took the Bulls with Jordan to win it all. Look at the Detroit Pistons of the 90's. Rarely will young teams go far in the playoffs, so I think the real point should be people should stop saying Nelson can win during the regular season but can't win in the playoffs.
If Nellie had stayed in Dallas along with Nash, they would have won at least one Championship by now. Forget the Mavs winning one for a while now.
