DIME MAG DAILY SMACK: What's up with George Karl?
What the hell is wrong with George Karl? Did you catch all that's going down with his interview in Esquire? Karl basically says that Doc Rivers' success as a coach in the League paves the way for 4 or 5 other "Afro-Americans" to be "annointed" to head coaching positions without having to pay their dues like everybody else. Doc was then interviewed yesterday by Peter Vecsey and was pretty candid in his response. He said that he feels that 13 years as a player was enough experience and pointed out that Karl didn't say anything about Larry Bird, who also had no previous experience. He also added that for him, it's about the players and the team, whereas Karl's in it for himself and that Karl "needs a big hug." Like a man amongst boys. Not even. It was more like a man amongst little girls watching Shaq pummel the Knicks yesterday. The Daddy went for 40 on 15-21 shooting from the field while his Lakers rolled 117-103. Shaq had Kurt Thomas on him and while Thomas is a warrior, there's just nothing he could do. You could've given Thomas a bat and an elephant gun and he couldn't have slowed down Shaq.
