Agent's scathing words don't seem to faze Nelson

Agent's scathing words don't seem to faze Nelson Agent's scathing words don't seem to faze Nelson

The Warriors had little reaction to the widely discussed comments made by swingman Stephen Jackson's agent, Mark Stevens, to that were posted late Sunday night.

Coach Don Nelson declined to comment on Stevens' remarks except to say, "You guys know what that's about." He also said the comments won't change the team's position regarding a trade.

"No one trusts Don Nelson," Stevens was quoted as saying. "When Nelson was in Milwaukee, Wayne Embry trusted him and brought him in, and he betrayed Embry. In Dallas, Mark Cuban took damn good care of him and his son (Donnie Nelson Jr.), and he betrayed Cuban. In Golden State, Chris Mullin hired him and trusted him, and Nelson backstabbed him by reaching out to president Robert Rowell and blaming Mullin for everything that was going wrong with the Warriors ."

Jackson doesn't do pregame interviews. But a source close to Jackson said he doesn't want to go to just any team. He wouldn't want to go to Charlotte, the source said, or any team not in contention.

It is widely believed Stevens' personal attack on Nelson was designed to make Jackson's presence on the team so controversial that the Warriors would be desperate to get rid of him.

"I'm disgusted with the quality of Nelson's coaching and with the lack of trust his players have in him," Stevens told . "Nelson is the winningest coach in NBA history never to have coached in the NBA Finals, let alone win a championship. Yet he keeps getting jobs despite being 69 years old."

Swingman Kelenna Azubuike had 21 first-half points on 9-for-12 shooting.
