George Karl ‘Sad’ No Denver Nuggets are Getting All-Star Buzz

Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl laments that none of his players are getting serious All-Star consideration this year. Karl, if he had to choose Nugget to play in the big showcase, says Andre Miller (whom Karl adores) should get the nod. Per the Denver Post: “Portland came to town with a basketball debate. Is its point guard, rookie Damian Lillard, worthy of being an all-star? He would be the first rookie guard to make an all-star team since Michael Jordan. And while Karl entertained that query, he had one of his own. ‘I think it’s sad. I don’t see anyone mentioning any of our guys,’ he said. ‘We get a couple more wins this week, and we could have one of the better records in the West. We don’t get much mention.’ Asked which of his players he deems worthy for consideration, Karl paused for a second. ‘That would be really difficult to say,’ Karl said. ‘I’d probably say Andre Miller. From the standpoint of efficient minutes, Andre’s given us as efficient minutes as anybody. But I think Ty (Lawson) and (Andre Iguodala) and (Danilo Gallinari) all have had moments. And I’m excited, because I think they all are getting stronger and more confident, and their consistency is getting at a higher level. But because of their up-and-down moments, it’s going to be difficult for them to get any recognition.’”

    Well when you play everyone close to equal minutes, their stats don’t really stand out. Their highest scorer is Gallo with about 16 a game so idk if thats All-Star play. Team basketball wins regular season games not create all stars. (I think the Pistons were the only exception)

    i was thinking the same thing, karl could almost take it as a compliment and proof that his players bought in to the teams concept

    They’re like my Bulls, with a worse leader at point.

    And they score like 30 points more a game.

    Andre Miller with Efficient Minutes! hahaha For real though, no one on this team is playing like an all-star (Iggy is playing great D but since when does that give you an all-star nod). I think Lawson is fully capable if he attacked more on offense (if Dame Lillard is getting some mentioning it’s important to point out how much Lawson dominated him near the end of the game). And Karl, I’m sorry, your using Gallo wrong, he should definitely be playing stretch 4.

    Maybe one day he’ll be an allstar. He has all the potential to be one, its just he’s too silly and goofy to realize it. Or maybe its just GK isnt handling him properly.

    I certainly hope so, I love watching that dude play.
