George Karl Compares Billups to Obama

Today, Obama. Tomorrow, Ghandi…Coach Karl’s man-love for Chauncey is outta controI: “I don’t know Obama well, but I think (Billups) does (have similar qualities to the president elect)… When you make change, it’s substance. Obama had the substance to do this, to fulfill this. What I’m excited about is I know Chauncey has substance.”

    Ridiculous. Although the chimistry in Denver looks pretty good right now. I saw GK chest bumping players and assistant coaches(!) and looking genuinely happy during pregame warmups.

    Someone need to get Karl out of the Mile High air.

    Hell, I’d probably would have voted for Billups. At least he would have a record to run on beforehand.

    I feel bad for George’s wife.

    To lose your man like this…

  • riggs

    you got a lil substance on the side of your mouth there george.

    Man, he never said stuff like this about Gary Payton and he’s a HOFer? But they’ll lose in the second round this year though, Billups will wear down over the year, like he always does.

    as a sonics coach I thought he´s somehow inventive while being successful. I wonder if I was so wrong back then or if he´d changed into whatever he is right now. Has he been that bad of a coach forever?

    Old George has got to stop.

    Middle-aged white guys trying to comprehend what Obama means to this country is bound to plague us for a couple of years.

  • Jolst

    I think Billups is paying him donuts to say this kind of things.

    heh, that is someone who has run out of answers to the same questions “actually since CBills arrived I havent had to make any decisions so its worked out great, ill make stupid comarisons to placate him!” Karl did not add….

    w.o.w. Georgie porgie, phone call?!! It’s chauncey’s nuts, begging you to get off ‘em.

  • NACHOveli

    eventhough it seems heaven sent, we aint ready for billups as president.

  • Anton

    George Karl is Karl Rove

  • Sarah

    lmao wow

  • Boing Dynasty

    If Chauncey is Obama, and Iverson is Palin, and Karl is Bush, can JR Smith be the dude who threw his shoes at Bush’s head last week?

  • jaywhy

    george karl is michael jackson

  • EC

    Iverson’s Clinton, caused controversy while he was there but you wouldnt mind having him back (*cough* Philly *cough*)

    This is definitely the Birdman’s fault. Stop sharing.

    I always thought Baron Davis was Obama. And I have to disagree. Darko Milicic is Sarah Palin. He was the little-known Serbian center who everyone expected great things of. Turns out, he sucks and is the only one who takes him seriously. Just like Palin!

    Uhhhhh, every time an NBA player gets traded there’s change, George. So I guess he’s got a point. So that means that every player has Obama-like qualities!

    Calm down George. Why don’t you just stop talking for a while.

    roflmao at Boing Dynasty. Hey, George I agree with you, but you can’t compare a basketball player to a damn politician.
