George Karl tried to reinforce the perception of Carmelo Anthony

Believe it or not, with any sports figure a reputation can become pretty set in stone rather quickly, if not unfairly. It’s nearly impossible for that person to change her or his perception within the public or even with peers unless she or he — an athlete, coach, executive or even a media personality — does something remarkable and undeniable.

Report: Kings want George Karl to resign

The Sacramento Kings remain a hot mess. Entering the final two weeks of the regular season, Sacramento boasts a 29-44 record and is clearly out of the Western Conference Playoff race. This leads most to believe that head coach George Karl will be getting the ax when all is said and done next month. While that’s still likely going to be the case, especially with the continual...
