Run date: 1/3/14 OOPS and HOCKEY in the HUB J THE FUTURE MEETS THE PAST- It was a battle of two young basketball minds, it was, one coming from a prior era in Boston Celtics history and another representing the future of the franchise. It was a contest that fea- tured two mentors who had honed their careers in the Hoosier State -- one who had lived there all his life until last summer and another who had arrived as recently as 2007. In fact, if both had re- mained in place, the state of Indiana would be rightly .proud that both of these coaches would be well on the path toward leading their respective teams to possible championships this season. But one left -- to come to one of the most storied fran- chises in basketball -- while the other remained at the helm of a team that has a very good chance of going deep into the NBA playoffs this spring. The men need no personal introduction to each other since they used to be bas- ketball neighbors. Celtics Coach Brad Stevens' former office on the Butler Univer- sity campus was just a few miles from that of Frank Vogel, currently the coach of the Eastern Conference leading Indiana Pacers and formerly an assistant with the Celtics. It was the potential future of the team meeting the Celtics past since Vogel got his start working as a student manager for Rick Pitino at the University of Kentucky. He later was hired as video coordinator of the Green and White when Pitino made the jump to the Celtics in 1997. Vogel remained in that position until 2001, when he became an assistant coach under Jim O'Brien after Pitino left. He would remain with the team until 2004, moving with O'Brien to the 76ers as the Doc Rivers era began in Boston. He later worked as a scout for the Lakers and the Wiz- ards before reuniting with O'Brien at Indiana. In 2011, after O'Brien was let go, Vogel became the interim head coach -- leading the Pacers to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. He was officially named the head coach in July, 2011. On that night a couple of weeks back, Indiana wal- loped the Celtics, 106-79, a lesson taken to heart by a first-year NBA coach and given by one who took a long and winding road to reach a similar position. Perhaps Stevens will return the favor some day in the future. NELLIE NOW -- There was a great back-of-the-book story in the December 23 rd edition of Sports Illustrated on former Celtic Don Nelson -- who had a five-decade career in the NBA as both a player and a oach. It turns out that Nellie, who won five NBA titles as a member of the Celtics from 1965 to 1976, is now in retirement on the island of Maui in Hawaii -- and enjoying every minute of it. Nelson, who won an NBA title ring at the end of his first season with the C's (1966), went on to win four more- in 1968, 1969, 1974 and 1976 -- before moving on to a head coaching career that included the Milwaukee Bucks, the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors. Many things changed in the NBA between the night that Nelson was drafted in the third round (17 th over- all) by the Chicago Zephyrs in 1962 and the time he coached his last game with the Warriors in 2010. But the one aspect that did not change over the course of all those years was that on any given night in the regular season (and a good number of ones in the play- offs), Don Nelson was either playing in a game or coach- ing in one -- or reading scouting reports and watch- ing film in preparation for his next contest. He averaged more than 10 points a game from 1968 to 1975 while with the Celtics, in an era when the three- point shot was years from its introduction. He went on to be named one of the Top 10 Coaches in NBA History after he left the court as a player. And some things were long overdue -- such as his Sep- tember, 2012 induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. That year he also received his degree from Iowa State University, the school he had left five decades earlier to enter the NBA draft. Even his choice of a retire- ment location came about because of basketball. In the SI piece Nellie relates that he first came to Maui for a 1963 exhibition game as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. He vowed to return and he did -- for his honeymoon with his wife Joy in 1991 and later in retirement. At 73, he sayshe has no inter- est in coaching opportuni- ties or broadcasting posi- tions, preferring to stay on Maul. But the Nelson name is still prominent in a contem- porary way in today's NBA. That's because one of Nellie's sons -- Donn Nelson -- is the general manager of the Mavericks. They say there will al- ways be an England. Maybe, given that Nellie has sev- eral grandchildren, there will always be a Nelson affiliated in some way with the NBA. WWW. BOSTON POSTGAZ ETTE.CO M
