Nuggets Headed in Positive Direction?
Living in Denver, the firing I have been closest to is that of George Karl. I have known Karl for about a decade and talked about nearly everything one could imagine with him. In short, I like him as a human being. However, there comes a time when a change can be mutually beneficial. The Nuggets and Karl had reached that time.
Winning 57 games in the regular season was a bit of fool’s gold. Karl overachieved with a good but not great team that was probably more of a 50-win team. That over-achievement in the regular season juxtaposed to what happened in the playoffs only further highlighted his postseason struggles.
