George Karl has over stepped the line. Ever since the Nuggets traded their star centre away for Javele McGee (helping the Clippers get Nick Young in the process) they have been back pedalling. Now George Karl has fallen over himself trying to convince everyone this trade was a good idea;
[On Javele McGee ] “I think he plays a little bit like Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar), but he’s a defensive Kareem more than an offensive Kareem. He’s not going to be a power player, but he’s going to be an athletic-length-long player.”
George, I love your style, I love your attitude, you bring grit and toughness to the Nuggets. But stop it. Kareem was selected on 11 NBA All- Defensive teams, Kareem was a smart, intelligent player, Javele McGee is a goof.
Lets give Karl the last laugh – he has worked magic with the team he has now, maybe he can squeeze blood from this stone.
