Hall of Famer Don Nelson returned to Golden State on Thursday along side former Warriors Jason Richardson and Stephen Jackson. The 78-year-old had two coaching stints with the team from 1988-1995 and then again from 2006-10.
Nelson, who now lives in Hawaii, was sporting a new look with long hair and a gold chain and asked what he’s been up to since he retired from coaching in 2010. He revealed he’s been enjoying his retirement by smoking pot.

Sure Nelson has the most wins in NBA history, but what he’s doing in retirement might be his most impressive accomplishment. There aren’t many people who become potheads in their 70s.
Pothead Don Nelson might be the best Don Nelson.
