George Karl Thinks the New York Knicks Will Struggle in the Playoffs

Most coaches and players around the NBA do their best to avoid making pointed critisms of opposing teams, but George Karl isn’t like most people (which tends to occassionaly get him in trouble.) He tells ESPN Radio that the Knicks aren’t really built for postseason success. From Larry Brown Sports: “The thing I don’t like about the situation is all this stuff is happening with very little practice time,’ Karl said. ‘So you’re kind of meshing different personalities and different people on the court, and you’re going to have to do it on the job, in the game situation, and that’s how you’re going to have to do it. That’s not the easiest thing to do from a coaching standpoint. I don’t think they’re going to get out of the bottom half of the draw, so I think they’re going to draw one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference (in the playoffs). I’ll be honest with you, I think it’s going to be very difficult for them this year to put the pieces together to figure out how to beat one of those top three or four teams.'”
