06:44 AM ET 12.11 | Keith Smart, the Warriors' top assistant, is publicly playing the part of timid understudy as the team awaits the full-time return of head coach Don Nelson from a bout with pneumonia. What Smart is doing in the locker room and on the court, however, might be proving that he's ready for a leading role. He is widely considered the heir apparent to Nelson, though no one confirmed that verbiage is in writing.
