George Karl discusses Pels



On my iPhone and can't link it, but noladefender.com
has an article in which Karl gives his overview of the Pels.
It appears as if he's lobbying for the job.

re: George Karl discusses Pels


what are you on, a flip-phone?

Here is the LINK

quote:

The team I like a lot and it bothers me, is New Orleans. That Davis kid is coming and their three guys out front, Holiday and Gordon and Evans, can get to the rim, and they can score. Gordon can be a great shooter. And then they’ve got the Ryan Anderson kid who’s the best shooting four in basketball.



[...] I think they should be playing better. But I’m still on record that I like ‘em a lot. I like them because Anthony Davis is a basketball player. He’s not a big man. He’s a basketball player that’s seven feet tall. And I just think the game is about basketball players, not necessarily position players.

re: George Karl discusses Pels


linking the real article shows a bit more... LINK

quote:

Q: Have any coaching opportunities come up yet?

A: No. I’m hoping they don’t come this quickly.

Taking a team in the middle of the year is not the most advantageous situation.
We had a helluva ride here [32-8 following Jeff Bzdelik (13-15) and Michael Cooper (4-10) in 2005]. It’s the only time I’ve really ever done it. I’m sorry — when I went back to Seattle in ’92, I guess [27-15 following K.C. Jones (18-18) and Bob Kloppenburg (2-2" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">. Seattle was desperate to get back in.

There are parts of how my life is now that I’m enjoying. I’m enjoying scheduling time to see my family, hanging out at my kid’s school and being involved in the neighborhood and all that good stuff. As you get older, you probably like that more.

Having more time being at home, being with Kim and Kaci and some more time to socialize, and then I have my time to go to ESPN, which connects you. And I have some other endeavors, doing some videos and talking about maybe doing a book. I’m not a big book writer because I don’t think I want to tell all the truth right now. I think that’s the next chapter.


eta: but he does say

quote:

Q: Is your goal still to coach in the NBA again?

A: One more time.


and that he doesn't want to coach the Knicks

quote:

Q: So what’s the plan? Wait for the phone to ring?

A: There are days I wish it would ring and there are days I don’t want it to ring. I mean, I watch the Knicks play and I wouldn’t want to be in that hell for a million dollars. It’s just New York City and the Garden and the immensity of the pressure. I think Mike Woodson is standing up to it with tremendous integrity.


the whole read is interesting, especially this:

quote:

Q: Percentage-wise in the NBA, how many players in your experience are basically in it for the money?

A: More. It’s growing. Every year it’s gotten more.

Juxtapose this:

quote:

I watch the Knicks play and I wouldn’t want to be in that hell for a million dollars. It’s just New York City and the Garden and the immensity of the pressure. I think Mike Woodson is standing up to it with tremendous integrity.


With this:

quote:

The team I like a lot and it bothers me is New Orleans.


I know some have said we can't get Karl, but that sure doesn't make it seem like that's the case.

i think if there is an "ideal" situation for him, it would be in NOLA. like Denver, it's a nice sized sports town but it's football centered for the most part. it's a good, young roster he can work with under less pressure. i can't think of many other jobs (maybe memphis if they end up missing the playoffs this year) where that would be the case.

I don't know . . . I think the heavy odds are that there won't be a coaching change, if there is one, until the off season. But Karl sure would be an interesting coach for this team.
