You have learned well George Karl.
What in the world is wrong with sports these days? I swear! If I didn't know better I would think this was the Year of the Rat since so many people are telling on themselves and/or their teammates.
The latest rat to come out of nowhere is Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl. For some stupid reason he thought it was a good idea to come clean about a little rumor he started many years ago.
Apparently as the trade deadline approached one season years ago, he and some other coaches (he refers to the as coaching pals so I assume they could be head coaches of other teams) thought it would be funny if they could start the craziest trade rumor possible and get it in the news.
"We make up some trade that never was proposed in 100
years and suddenly it's on ESPN," he said, smiling. [SLAM]
I get it George. To try and pull one over on the media would be pretty funny; apparently you succeeded so I guess you know what it was like. Those guys do all sorts of things to you so it must have felt like poetic justice.
The thing is they didn't get hurt in it. They didn't even look funny. They reported what they thought was news to the fans. So in essence the only people that were really affected by the rumor were the fans.
Now I know the first thing that your supporters are going to say. They are going to remark on how the rumor was absurd so absurd that there is no way that it could ever be carried out--so what fan worth his/her salt would fall for it?
Well, if you only want the die-hards watching you are going to lose a lot of fans. Teams do crazy/stupid trades all the time too, so how are we supposed to know?
We don't, but that's why we watch ESPN and the other sports programs that are on; so we can know, but I guess that doesn't matter to you George.
For shame George. For shame.
I have to wonder if David Stern is going to have something to say about this.

Nuggets coach George Karl admits he has made up fake trade rumors before with his fellow coaches just to see if they make the newspaper.
Head Coach George Karl. 1,107 regular season career wins. 399 regular season wins as the coach of the Denver Nuggets. But none of that matters because every loss – regular season and the post season – is George Karl’s fault. He’s the cancer taking the mighty franchise that is the Denver Nuggets with him. He’s [...]The post Start The “Fire George Karl” Chaos Engine....
We are 10 days away from the February 21 NBA trade deadline and while things seem relatively quiet now, they are sure to pick up in the next couple of days.
This has to be a nerve-racking time for players, coaches, general managers and everybody else involved. Players could have to move to a completely new city at the drop of a hat, and (with the exception of a few players with...
The Denver Nuggets were looking to extend their 9 game win streak to 10 if they could have beaten the Boston Celtics. It didn’t happen. The Nuggets have played some mighty fine basketball lately, They were on a run and winning game after game, they got to 9 wins in a row and were looking to get their latest win streak to double digits. They fell short of that with a 118-114 loss...
Things didn’t start off like the Denver Nuggets had hoped when they took on the Toronto Raptors Tuesday, as Denver was missing two starters, Andre Iguodala and Danilo Gallinari, and a rotation player, Wilson Chandler. Toronto had an early double-digit lead and it only got worse when DeMar DeRozan Blake Griffin’d Timofey Mozgov during the second quarter.The post DeMar DeRozan...
With the Nuggets having four players out, Anthony Randolph played 27 minutes while scoring 16 points to go with seven rebounds and three steals.
DeMar DeRozan does his best Blake Griffin reenactment on Timofey Mozgov in Tuesday’s matchup vs. the Nuggets and throws a hammer down on the center:
Nuggets big man Timofey Mozgov may have finally finished having nightmares from the time Blake Griffin dunked oh him so bad, that he got the dunk named after him and now a poster dunk can be a Mozgov’d.
Two years later Mozgov might not have nightmares, but he was Mozgov’d again by Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan after a strong drive down the lane.
The look on Timofey Mozgov’s face...
Yes you read the title right. Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried is scheduled to participate in this year’s Dunk Contest. And reportedly it appears he is considering using a bowling ball during the competition. Per Denver Post: “I thought about that, but I haven’t practiced it or anything. I really don’t know if I’m [...]
The Boston Celtics hosted the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night in what ended up being a triple-overtime thriller. The Celtics managed to win the game 118-114 behind Paul Pierce’s 27 points.
While the game was full of highlights, perhaps the best highlight was when the oft vocal Kevin Garnett told Kenneth Faried to “get that sh$t out of her n$%#a”. He yelled it loud enough that...
Timofey Mozgov learned a valuable lesson in last night’s Nuggets-Raptors game. And that lesson is not to jump with Demar Derozan. Especially when he has a running start.
The post Timofey Mozgov now knows not to jump with Demar Derozan first appeared on No Guts, No Glory.
Poor Timofey Mozgov, first he gets abused by Blake Griffin and earlier tonight, he got banged on by Toronto Raptors forward Demar Derozan.Watch as Demar "derises" in the second quarter of the Raptors/Nuggets game at the Air Canada Center:
