Nellie? After leaving the Warriors in 2010, he headed back to his home in Maui and fell off the basketball map. In 2013, I visited him at his home in Paia. He greeted me in flip flops, looking trim and tan, and led the way to the patio to smoke stogies—he’d cut out beer—and watch the waves, his two dogs lounging nearby. Later, once he figured out the DVR, we watched a Warriors-Grizzlies game. He cackled a lot, praised Andrew Bogut, and cursed David Lee. He took life at its own pace. Long afternoons. Shuffleboard out back of the bistro he owned. And, best of all, poker games in his upstairs man cave. There, he and his buddies—including Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, and Willie Nelson—would get magnificently stoned and play deep into the night. Once, he told me, a beloved regular, Greg Booth, passed away right there during the game, his aorta giving out. The coroner was late arriving, and the group looked to Nellie, who said, “”He’d want you to play on.” So they’d finished the game that night, stepping around Booth’s body to get to the veranda for a smoke. “Poor bastard,” Nellie told me, “but he went out doing what he loved.”
Despite playing against Andrew Bogut in the NBL, Froling says he’s not going bother the Boomers great while he’s on his playoff run with the Warriors, but says he has a close friendship with the Pistons Thon Maker. “I’ve talked to Thon a lot,” Froling tells ESPN. “We’ve been really close friends, and he’s been telling me, ‘you’re an NBA player, you just need to put it all together. You’ve got the pieces to build a Ferrari, you just need to build the Ferrari.’

So why aren’t the Warriors sweating Thompson’s future like they are with Durant? “The media, I think, give him a little bit of a break as far as over-speculating and throwing him into the fire because he hasn’t really fueled it — at all,” said Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who has been Thompson’s teammate for five seasons over his two stints with the team. “You’ve never heard him say anything bad about wanting to leave here or going to another team or being the No. 1 option. You’ve never even heard that off the record. Some players say the right thing publicly but have different feelings [in private]. He completely wants to be here and he gets it that this is a very rare situation.”
