George Karl Says He Despises the Los Angeles Lakers

Refreshing honesty is one of defining hallmarks of the George Karl Experience, so it should come as no surprise that the Denver Nuggets’ head coach told the world precisely how he feels about the rival (and reloaded) Lakers. Karl hates them. From the Denver Post: “The Lakers are his Duke. Denver coach George Karl, who’s often wearing either Nuggets or North Carolina powder blue at Pepsi Center, feels the annual wrath of the Lakers, who have ended Denver’s season three times in the past five seasons. ‘I can’t deny that I just despise the Lakers,’ Karl said Monday. ‘There’s a bigger (description) for it (that I can’t use in public). I’ve been beaten by them too many times. I didn’t expect them to be bad this season, but when they got Steve Nash, I can’t deny I was really upset.’ Karl said he sent a text message to L.A. executive Mitch Kupchak, descriptively suggesting where Karl believes Kupchak has a rabbit’s foot on his person.”

    most coaches in the west probably do. say what u want about kupchak but he pull some gangsta moves this summer. they say he was crip walking down figueroa


    he literally was, no joke. how else do you get Nash and Dwight and Gasol is still on the roster

    It takes another team to make a dumb decision (Orlando). At least Memphis was trying to clear up cap space when the Lakers recieved Gasol. Look at the Grizzlies now tho..

    Sorry karl, it just is what it is

    Having Steve Nash just makes Lakers more efficient and deadlier. I mean Nash himself can break down any defense with mediocre players. What more with superstars. I can agree with George Karl. That’s why I hate Lakers too. But I love Nash so I’m rooting for them

    Does this idiot realize without the nuggets the Lakers don’t pull of the Howard deal? It might of still gotten done otherwise, but the Nuggets sure helped, thanks

    Uh…Karl didn’t mention Howard. Thats all you.
    He was irate about Nash. Karl probably feels like I do about Dwight…not that big of an improvement over Bynum (rated 1 and 2 respectively).
    Karl correctly understood that Nash is a huge improvement (even with the geritol diet) over anything LALAs had last year.
    As a Nuggets fan I really like them having Howard…DEN has always played well against him…even before the trio of 7 footers came in.

    What is? The way the Lakers have ALWAYS gotten golden deals handed to them? They must have a LOT of dirt on the Commish…
