Dave Krieger sat down with George Karl, former Nuggets coach, to talk about a fairly wide range of subjects. Of interest, Krieger asks about his feelings on this year's team ... as well as the subject we all want to know about, if he thought Andre Iguodala was "The Mole" in Game 5 of the Nuggets and Warriors series.

Q: Do you think Andre Iguodala was Mark Jackson’s "mole"?

A: No question.

Q: Does that bug you?

A: I just think that’s media hype. I mean, that series was not a physical series. Everybody wants to be more aggressive with the guy kicking your ass, so . . . .

Q: The media didn’t say it. Jackson said it.

A: I thought Mark had a lot of tricks in that series that were bush- . . . I don’t know. I don’t know what they were. Almost high-schoolish. They were beneath the NBA level. And they might have worked. They might have motivated his young team in a good way. You know, he’d announce a starting lineup and start another guy. C’mon, man. You think we’re not ready for that?

Karl also covers his thoughts on JaVale McGee, the current Nuggets, ESPN and where he thinks he can coach next. As always with George, it was an entertaining interview. Agree or disagree, George will tell you exactly what he thinks.

Here's hoping Iguodala is healthy by the time the Warriros come to Denver in December to play. The boo's may deafen the Dubs.
