2010 NFL DRAFT: Browns pick CB Joe Haden of the Florida Gators

Cornerback Joe Haden had very slow times in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine but the Cleveland Browns liked him so much that they knew he was good enough to be a number 1 pick.

Unable to move up in the first round after inquiring about the number 1 overall pick, Cleveland selected Haden, a two-time All-American at Florida, with the number 7 selection in Thursday’s first round.

Haden is the first player taken by Cleveland’s new management of general manager Tom Heckert and Browns president Mike Holmgren, who was brought in to restore and rebuild one of the NFL’s oldest franchises.

The 5’10 193-pound Haden was so elated when he received the phone call in New York from the Browns, he wept.

Bothered by a bad lower back that he aggravated while lifting weights, Haden was timed in Indianapolis as slow as 4.57 seconds- not exactly NFL cornerback material. But Cleveland liked him anyway. His times improved dramatically at the University of Florida Gators pro day.

Don Nelson is the NBA’S winningest coach

Former Iowa Hawkeye Don Nelson has overtaken Lenny Wilkens as the NBA’s winningest coach. “Lenny has been an idol of mine for a long time,” Nelson said.

His Golden State Warriors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night, 116-107 to give their coach win number 1,333 for his career.

Nelson’s career as a head coach started with Milwaukee in 1976 when he replaced Larry Costello 19 games into the season and he didn’t have an assistant coach to help him.

In 31 years as a coach, Nelson is 1,333-1,061 in his career where he has made stops in Milwaukee, New York, Dallas and Golden State twice. He won five titles as a player, has been coach of the year three times, but has never made the NBA Finals as a coach. He is the only coach with at least 1,000 career victories who hasn’t been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Nelson, a Red Auerbach protege’, has a reputation as the “mad scientist” because of his experimentation with lineups and offensive plays to fit his teams that weren’t the most talented, lacked height and physical attributes that he needed. In his first stint with Golden State in the late ’80′s, he came up with the famous “Run T-M-C” lineup which consisted of guards Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin to make the Warriors one of the more entertaining and explosive teams in the league at that time.

Among active coaches, Jerry Sloan of Utah (1,188) and the Lakers’ Phil Jackson (1,095) are the closest to Nelson on the wins list. All three coaches played against each other in the “old school” NBA.

The New York Knicks showed that they do indeed have some firepower on their team. They celebrated a rare blowout win and surprising win in another unforgettable season. They hammered the Dallas Mavericks, one of the NBA’s top teams, 128-94 in Dallas.

Bill Walker scored a career-high 23 points, while Wilson Chandler added 22 as the Knicks snapped the Mavericks 13-game winning streak on Saturday night.

Rookie Toney Douglas poured in 21 and David Lee hauled downed 14 rebounds.

Nearly two months ago in New York, the Mavs defeated the Knicks in one of the most lopsided wins in their history by 50 points. Dallas had beaten New York 9 straight times and 14 of 17 prior to Saturday night’s game. The last time the Knicks beat Dallas was on December 16, 1999.

New York shot the ball very well, 56 percent from the floor(50 of 89) and 16 of 30 from behind the 3-point line.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Knicks wore uniforms with “NUEVA YORK” on the front and Dallas’ uniforms said “Los Mavs”.
