Have you seen Denver play? Since the trade that was supposed to be the death of the franchise sending it back to the stone ages of rebuilding, I mean?

They’re good. They get after it defensively, they have some balance and a real energy. They’re not contending but they are going to push somebody in the playoffs.

George Karl deserves some credit for that. And he’s about to get rewarded.

Karl and the Nuggets have been talking about a new contract for a while now and they are close to a deal on a three-year extension for the coach, according to Chris Tomasson (on twitter). The final details are being ironed out.

Karl is a good fit in Denver, a player that pushes and gets a lot out of his teams. He’s a good fit with a team like Denver has now. Yes, they still have rebuilding to do, but the goal was not to drop all the way off in the process. Karl seems the right coach for that.

    When we don’t have Melo you say good things about Denver. I appreciate it Kurt. Look at the defense being played without Melo. IT’S GREAT. 40 points last night? lol.

    Coach Karl is very well liked in Denver, and it’s easy to see why. Class act, good coach.
