George Karl works his magic again with second level bigs.

Karl worked with Ervin Johnson, who went from being mediocre to being a top defender in his prime.

Now Karl has gotten Chris Anderson to play defense and rebound at a high level.

This is a good move by the Nuggets, because now they can pursue a trade of Nene or K-Mart and not have to worry about getting the same caliber of big in return.
