FILE - In this Dec. 18, 2009, file photo, Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson gestures on the sidelines during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Washington Wizards, in Oakland, Calif. Truth be told, Golden State's coach wasn't sure the Warriors needed Kevin Durant. Don Nelson thought the Warriors needed Greg Oden. That was 10 years ago, after months leading up to the heavily hyped draft in which the Oden-Durant debate raged throughout basketball. And now, as Durant leads the league's most potent team into the NBA Finals while Oden is long gone from the NBA spotlight, it's easy to forget that a lot of people agreed with Nelson.(AP Photo/Ben Margot, File)
