Don Nelson Will Leave a $6.3 Million Dollar Scar On Mark Cuban’s Butt

Posted by Admin in News, Pictures

An arbitrator ruled today that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban must immediately pay Don Nelson $6.3 million, over the former Dallas coach’s compensation package.

Nelson, now the Golden State Warriors’ coach, claimed the money was owed to him from his time with the Mavericks from 1997-2005. The arbitrator, retired Judge Glen M. Ashworth, also rejected Cuban’s claim that Nelson used “confidential information” to help the Warriors upset the top-seeded Mavs in the first round of the 2007 playoffs.

While the matter was resolved Thursday when the ruling was handed down, there are still plenty of hard feelings.

Don Nelson told ESPN.com
“It was kind of a silly case. It’s like a pimple on his behind, but $6-plus million is a big number for me. I don’t feel like I’ve won the lottery because I’ve already earned that money, but it’s good to know I’m going to get it.”

With that statement from Nelson in mind, I now leave you with this image…
