The always-quotable Don Nelson had a great quote yesterday in the SF Chronicle:
"There are a lot of situations [young/inexperienced players] can hurt you. And we understand that. A year ago, I knew exactly what I had. I had veterans come in who attended to business. This year, we're different. We're green and growing. We've got a lot of development to do here with our younger players. I would prefer a veteran team. I'd prefer an ass-kicking veteran team."
