No one actually cares, anymore.

He's a great coach, yeah, but he didn't win a single championship. That'll be a bummer.

But yeah, congratulations to him.. I think Warrior fans just want him to achieve his record so he'll leave.

I think he'll get the record. I'm sure Golden State can go at least 5-10 in their last 15 games.

how many year he's coaching? that nice, but no rings - nothing special.

I disagree with this statement. Rings aren't everything. I don't really like Don Nelson, but comon, this IS impressive once he gets it...

Also, Jerry sloan never won a ring, does that mean he's not a great great coach?

After Don Nelson becomes the most winning coach in nba history, he needs to retire.
