Reggie Williams Has Golden State Warriors Coach Don Nelson Drooling

While D-League call-up Reggie Williams has long been a favorite of Ridiculous Upside, it seems he's found an even more highly-regarded fan in Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson.

If you needed more proof than Williams currently averaging 27 minutes per game and starting last night, consider the glowing recommendation Nelson gave Williams to Warriors.com after the game:

"I think he has a gift. He doesn't even know how big a gift he has because we have just dusted off the surface. He is a rare basketball player as far as I can see. He is able to have the mental capacity to understand the total game, read whose open, and read defenses and score. He's not selfish but he knows he can score. I think I will be able to do a lot of things with him as we go along that is why I am so happy we signed him for next year."

According to Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson, Williams also played point forward down the stretch, scoring seven points and adding three assists in the fourth quarter to finish with a game-high 25 points, seven assists and six rebounds while shooting 11-of-22 from the field.

I hate to say I toldjya so, but I toldjya so.  Santa Rosa Press Democrat Assistant Sports Editor Jared Cowley also tried to tell you, but I think we can all decidedly say that he was wrong.  Or at least a buzz kill.
