HBO Don Nelson

Even in retirement, Don Nelson continues to be a man ahead of his time.

The coach who encouraged 7-7 Manute Bol to start shooting three-pointers in the late 80s now grows marijuana on his farm in Maui.

As he told Bryant Gumbel on HBO's Real Sports, Nelson gives personal attention to his crops.

"You gotta treat it like a baby," Nelson said. "Gotta water them. You gotta have music for them. You gotta bless them. There's a whole process."

Here's a sneak peek of the story from the latest Real Sports report that premieres Tuesday June 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
