WEDNESDAY WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Featuring Golden State Warriors' legendary coach Don Nelson.
Nellie, now sporting a crewcut, can be found enjoying his retirement on the island of Maui, where he lives year round (although he still spends time in Oakland and Dallas).
"The Don" enjoys playing poker with his neighbors, country singer Willie Nelson (a good friend for 35 years), and actor Woody Harrelson, as well as hanging with his wife Miss Joy and their three dogs: Pebbles, Nellie and Lilly (all of whom he rescued from a shelter).
Nelson owns 22 acres of farmland on Maui and he plans to start an olive oil business one day. Ironically, even with his home 20 feet from the Pacific Ocean, he doesn't swim, surf or even float. "I'm not a water guy," he says.
Nellie says he has watched "every Warriors game" this year and he adds "that Curry kid is pretty good."
