Default Good riddance to the Nuggets for firing George Karl...(Thinking Shaw was a genius)

Karl maxed that team out nearly every year he coached. It has been downhill ever since he left. George Karl was shafted by that joke of a franchise. Great coach.

Oh and why was Shaw so coveted as a head coach? He's another Byron Scott dud.

They were just getting lucky when Melo left, he was the best thing to ever happen to Denver.

Karl is a genius as a coach but he is a man of opinions and in today's society that doesn't fly.

Shaw is an AA hire, he needs to be an assistant for a few more years at least.

Karl's an awesome coach. He's an asshole for sure but he knows how to get a team to play.

Karl failed in the playoffs many, many times.

But the fact that shaw is failing now (and he's horrible) doesn't mean letting Karl go was a mistake.

Maybe this will finally start the over due rebuilding process. Had we kept Karl we would win 40-45 games again. That's not what we need.

As opposed to not making the playoffs...anytime soon.

Watching the Nuggets these past two seasons, now I truly appreciate what Karl achieved in his last year and he definitely deserved COY.

Ah right. Shoulda predicted the future.

Even if you could and you told me they would lose in the first round 5 more times jn a row id still be ok with letting Karl go.

I mean what don't people understand. Did you just start watching the NBA? No? Well than alright. Nuggets had the second longest playoff streak in the NBA sans the Spurs. Think about that. Seriously, the Nuggets? You gotta fire the coach. Time to move on. Perhaps time for the basement.

Karl did what he could. He and the Nuggets came to a point where they both needed to back away. People just don't care about Denver so have know idea about the entire story

They are in a tough conference and rebuilding, I would say the Nuggz overachieve IMO.

I agree with what you're saying right here, but this is bullshit

You and most of the other Nuggets fans on ISH went on and on about how the Nuggets would be a good solid playoff contender this season. I always thought it was bullshit and you should just tank, but for you to pretend now at 1-4 that you knew you'd suck and you should rebuild is completely disingenuous.

The Nuggets problem is less about the coach and more about the players. The Nuggets do not have a single All-NBA player on their roster. They do not have a guy who can take over games consistently.

They might win a few in the regular season but you cannot win in the playoffs without having at least 1 star. The last team with "no stars" to win was the Sonics in the late 70's. And even Dennis Johnson was a bigger star than any of the current Nuggets.

Their system would work great in college though. A bunh of different guys contributing and no stars... great system in college.
