Poll: How do we feel about George Karl?


As of this writing, the Nuggets have lost 7 of their last 8 games, and are preparing to face the pacers this afternoon.

Including the pacers game, there are 8 games left prior to the All Star Game. I came into this season expecting that Karl would be given a full season and playoffs, and that if he made it out of the first round he would keep his job at least another year. The compressed season played a large role in that thinking, that it would be difficult to switch horses in the middle of such a rapidly moving screen. Also, I believe G.K. is very good at office politics and watched him lay down a foundation of excuses for failure before the season started. It

is fair to say that I am and have been one of the harshest Karl critics around. I have changed my thinking on Karl quite a bid amid the recent losing streak. It looks to me that he is in danger of losing the team, that we are thisclose to one of the players yelling at him to not just sit there during the second half of yet another losing effort. I don't believe he is playing the players in the way that Masai envisioned when he built this roster, and that behind the scenes Masai may be very frustrated with his coach. (Pure speculation on my part, no basis in fact).

The compressed schedule and injuries have certainly been a factor this season but, as KFH said yesterday, many of us were complaining about the problems with the coaching well before the losing streak started. Last year I was ridiculed at the end of the season when I said they had been playing like crap the last 15 games and would get their asses handed to them in the playoffs. The same things were said this year when I was complaining about the poor coaching before the losing streak.

I think we all know that some of us want Karl removed as early as possible, whatever the cost. Others would keep Karl here indefinitely, as we fans are unfit to judge coaching until we have at least 1,000 wins. I want to gauge roughly where the fans are right now in terms of keeping or firing Karl. If I miss an option that represents you, please choose other and put it in the comments.
