Karl to Grizzlies, Hollins to Nuggets?

Talk about weird ways to start your day. George Karl, the 2013 Coach of the Year award winner, and the Denver Nuggets have parted ways. If you’ve paid any attention to the Nuggets over the last few years, you knew this day was going to come. It still doesn’t make it feel any less asdfghjkl;.

Regardless, Marc Stein just threw out this little number on twitter:

Not sure if this is just Stein being your run-of-the-mill ESPN troll, or if this actually has a legitimate chance of happening. Either way, I’m not feeling it.

Karl, while he’s a great guy and a great coach, was at odds with Denver for a reason, and it was because he can’t touch defense with a ten foot pole. Harsh, but true. He’d be much better served with the Clips or in Philly. Somewhere that he can mold young talent or play at his frantic tempo.

At this point, it’s starting to feel like Memphis will soon be Joerger country. Which is alright in my book, as long as he can carry on the defensive culture the Grizzlies have built.
