This, friends, is what we call managing expectations: ” Denver head coach, George Karl, joined the Dan Patrick Show to discuss his playoff aspirations (or lack thereof), what has gone right with his team, what has gone wrong with Allen Iverson in Detroit and an issue some young people in the NBA face. On whether or not he thinks the Nuggets can win a title: ‘No (laughs). All we’re trying to do is win a playoff round. Since ‘Melo’s been here, they’ve been in the playoffs every year, since I’ve been here, we’ve been in the playoffs every year, but we’ve lost in the first round. It’s pretty easy – the writing’s on the wall, win or be crucified.’”
