George Karl Still Figuring Out Rotation
These coaches. Perpetually perturbed, everlastingly unsatisfied. Coaches live to coach, but they live their lives coaching, which means worrying, teaching, preaching, praying.
That brings us to George Karl, the lifer. The Nuggets’ coach, who got his first gig in 1984, begins another season with Denver on Wednesday at Philadelphia. He was asked Monday, “Are you where you want to be?”
“Coaches,” the coach said, “are never happy with where they are.”
“And it’s figuring out getting the right people together. We haven’t settled up our rotation yet. That will be the process of the first five to 10 games and get a comfort zone of who will play with Andre (Miller) off the bench. So that’s always a challenge. But I think it will be a lot of fun.”
