Lakers Don’t Want Coby, But His Dad Does

After he makes a trip to D-League, George Karl thinks his son can help the Nuggets.

    Good old nepotism.
    It’s still thriving in certain communities.

    I will feel really great for him when they fire his dad in two months.

  • mike

    Coby will reprise his role as water boy from his Seatte days.

    These guys both battle cancer and still find a way to thrive in their chosen (and extremely competitive) profession, but are universally sh*t on by y’all…..unbelieveable.

    Coby may not be an NBA-lifer, but he more than deserves a chance to help out an admittingly “thin” team.

    I would love to see Vince and Tmac back together.

    VC for Artest!

    Tell em Cub. The end of NBA benches are littered with guys who are of the same talent level of Coby. Plus, if you had a son you’d give him a job. I know I would.

    There are worse players holding down a regular role in some teams.

    I am just jealous of those guys at the end of the bench…..

    Cub, Co Co. George Karl has been doing a poor job in Denver. Coby has yet to prove that he is an NBA talent. Those facts have nothing to do with their respective battles against cancer. I admire them for that. However, I don’t let that cloud my judgment in assessing their performance.

    The Nuggets organization should fire George Karl asap.

  • http://coco-vents.blogspot.com Co Co

    I stand by my assessment about the talent at the end of NBA benches. And, no one is defending George’s coaching in Denver. Although in fairness to him Denver has consistently made the playoffs. Yeah he could probably try to get them to play defense every now and then, but there are worse coaches who actually deserve to be criticized for poor coaching. And unfortunately for them they can’t stay out of the way of the WC elite in the first round…..

    The Nuggets’ non-player issues begin and end with the management upstairs. Karl has never once been given solid ground to stand on when dealing with his players due to the mixed messages coming from the crowded front office. He has always tried to stress defense but when guys get lazy on the court or are not “buying in,” he isn’t allowed to handle them the way a coach should.

    Z, you watched Coby play all through college and last year in the D-Leauge? I would assume that is where he would prove his worth.
    Word to CoCo.

    Cub, apparently you have a much higher opinion of George Karl than I do.
    First and foremost, I don’t like coaches that use the media to make points about their players. That is taboo in my book and it’s the main reason I have a problem respecting Larry Brown.
    Plus, George Karl is the classic coach with different rules for different people. My favorite player is Iverson. George Karl does not treat Iverson the same way he treats Melo and J.R. Smith. He lets Ivy slide with way too much crap, particularly on defense.
    George Karl has been going through the motions for a while. I respect that cancer made him reconsider his personal priorities, but apparently that change made him even worse as a coach. He’s a bad coach in my opinion.
    Finally, what he’s doing with his son is nepotism and an attempt to make up for lost time in his life. That’s cool if you’re into that sort of thing.

    “Coach’s kid plays quarterback.” No different here.

  • Coby Karl

  • nbalifer

    Is the real Coby Karl allowed that close to a computer monitor..?

    There was a half decent coby karl dunk highlight somewhere around nba.com the other day.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Cub Buenning

    Allenp, your comment on “different rules” totally enforces what I mentioned about the front office situation. You’re right.

    But, not about Karl being a bad coach. That is incorrect in my opinion. I have my issues at times, but the Nuggets have had a better record every year he has been in Denver. That’s all that matters.

    the nuggets are a good strong squad. coby karl is an alright (bad) player. he will progress into a solid role player.
    allen i, carmelo a, j.r. smith, they are strong players. they will get the job done. same with k-mart, and nene.
