The Denver Nuggets are an absolutely fascinating team. Fascinating in much the same way that a train-wreck is fascinating; just when you think things can’t get any worse, they inevitably do.
At the end of the demoralizing Game 3 loss at home to the Lakers, Carmelo Anthony went bat sh*t crazy: Stewing on the bench, ‘Melo called out head coach George Karl to his face (who had pulled his starters), and told reporters that his team basically waived the white flag.
“We’re not just losing. We’re getting the (expletive) beat out of us. It’s about us giving up as a whole. We quit . . . everybody from the players to the coaches.
“There’s no way I can lay down on my team the way we laid down (Saturday afternoon)…I’m surprised at how we laid down like that. In my five years (with the Nuggets), that’s the first time I’ve ever felt like this.”
The Nuggets have done nothing but yap and complain all series long. Talking to the refs, the Lakers, and themselves. And the only thing they all seem to agree on is that they don’t like George Karl and his tactics.
Not to worry, guys, your vacation starts real soon. You won’t have to see or hear from that guy for months.
