Retirement Treating Don Nelson Well
(Don) Nelson also farms flowers – he gives them away because ”there’s not much money in flowers” – and will make olive oil from his olive trees. He’s even dabbling in dog food.
”It’s treating me well. I’m a lucky man,” he said of island life. ”I found out that there’s life after basketball, which is very exciting. I really haven’t missed it that much, but I’ve been very busy, so that’s probably part of the reason.”
”I invested my fortune on Maui,” he added with a smile. ”Those are the fun things I’m doing.”
