Nuggets brass says Karl is safe
May 13, 2013
There has been much buzz around Denver about the future of George Karl, after the Nuggets coach lost 4-2 in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs to the Warriors.
“George is under contract for next year. At this point in time, we haven’t really given any thought to making any change whatsoever,” Nuggets president Josh Kroenke told The Denver Post and nuggets.com. “As we do at the end of every season, we’ll have internal meetings and George will obviously be a major part of them. We won 57 games and in my mind, he should hands down be the NBA coach of the year. We’ll all put our heads together and try to figure out what happened (in the playoffs) and why it happened. We were without our second-leading scorer, and some benefit of the doubt should be given to a coach with well over 1,000 wins without one of his leading scorers (Danilo Gallinari) in the playoffs.”
Karl won 57 games with Denver this season, the most a Nuggets team ever won in the NBA, but the No. 3-seeded Nuggets weren’t themselves against the No. 6-seeded Warriors.
