George Karl Backs Popovich’s Right
George Karl questioned the questioner with a question of his own.
“The only question I would ask is,” the Nuggets coach said Thursday, “is the commissioner in the right?”
Here’s the backstory: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich decided to send home and rest four key players instead of having them play a fourth game Thursday in five nights.
The prideful coach — and unofficial president of the NBA coaches fraternity — spoke up for his peer by saying, “If you’re going to ask if ‘Pop’ is in the right, you’ve got to ask if the commissioner is in the right. And I’m not answering either one. To me, how you coach the team should be on the organization and the coach.”
