The Golden State Warriors continue their maniacal postseason fray tonight when Game 1 of their second round series kicks off tonight in Utah (10:30 p.m. Eastern on TNT). But don't expect Warriors coach Don Nelson to have his usual phenomenal swag after the game.
The National Basketball Association told Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson that he can't bring beer into the postgame interview room… Nelson, 66, brought a can of Bud Light into the interview room on more than one occasion during his team's opening-round upset of the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks.
Thank God the NBA came down on that. You just know that a 66-year-old man who's a known carouser is going to get wasted off of a Bug Light and say something dumb. Or if not, it will at least quell the complaints I hear from my NBA-hating friends all the time: "I love the players and style of play, but I simply can't tolerate the idea of someone having a beer after work."
