After watching last nights game, i realized the Nuggets will never be more than a first round playoff team. This is because of Hot Karl. The man's abject intractableness, stupidity, and uncreative rotations are anathema to this team. Look at the roster, one through 12 he has inherited the most talent of any Denver, Karl coached team thus far. It is infuriating to see him outwitted and out coached by the likes of Hollins and Del Negro. In the beginning of the season Karl found that a small line up has the potential to outrun and outgun many teams (most with losing records) en route to victory. A strategy he has advocated for several years. However, any coach with even a modicum of problem solving simply has his team sprint back and defend the fast break. We saw this in the Clippers game and Grizzlies games. Basically any team that wants to beat the Nuggets is guard the paint (our guard's outside shooting his woefully awful) and turn it into a half court game and out rebound. Thats it. That is all it takes to beat a George Karl coached team. Despite having 2 seven footers, a super talented rebounding machine rookie, and mis-matches with height up and down the roster (if players are played at their natural positions), Karl routinely plays his 3 or 4 guard lineups. If Karl really thinks this is the way to win games against teams without a losing record, or how to win a playoff game; he is sadly mistaken. If idiot george is serious about this strategy, than I suggest he goes all in, trade Manimal, Koufos, Moz, for three more speedy guards. If playing undersized at every position is his key to victory; than prove it to us George. Good coaches build trust, adapt, evolve and put players in positions to win. Hot Karl makes an entertaining game the same way its fun to see a midget versus a giant wrestling match but clearly he has no idea on how to coach a top tier NBA game. Fire George now!
