Good, he's made Nugget's basketball relevant and is a great coach.

i was sceptical of this front office all year until they got a surprisingly good deal with the Melo crap, and now making sure to lock up the coach.

i am pleasantly surprised. they have made the team better and are actually getting something out of KMart

I don't follow basketball that closely, but haven't the Nuggets gotten better since losing Melo?

You think Karl is worse than all but 5 of these coaches?

He's stabilized the Nuggets. Given all the distractions and roster upheaval and personalities, he's done an amazing job.

Yes...and the Knicks lost to Cleveland...twice...with Melo. Not exactly a great start for him there.

Masai & Josh in the front office have impressed me so far. This extension was the one thing I wanted them to get done the most, and they did.

So happy George Karl will be here 3 more years!!

I'd rather the Nugz call Sloan. His teams don't generally choke in the big games like Karl's do...

Wish his name wasn't "Josh" for some reason. ;D

Josh Kroenke has even pointed that out in radio interviews on 104.3 the fan. saying it is a bad time to be named Josh in the city of Denver

How 'bout Doug Moe? His teams didn't choke in big games either. Of course that's because they didn't play in any. ;D

Good for Karl and the Nuggets too.

He's a class act who is respected by players, coaches, and front office people all over the NBA.

That was pretty classless, says more about him than Melo.

agreed. i am anxious to see what he can do with this team after a full offseason of work together and not the current feel each other out on the court as we go type of situation as is happening now.

and he never came flat out and burned Melo. it was a response where he actually talked about how Melo was actually a really good player but that his defense needed work. he didn't blast the guy like the media made it seem.

Yeah, its not any secret that Anthony's defense needs work, either.

George isn't a bad coach, but he isn't as great as his winning percentage and number of wins would suggest. He has never won an championship and to my that is a major mark on his resume. That said, the nuggets aren't getting anyone any better in this day in age, so it was a great signing.

The jazz made it to the finals, the nugz have never made it to the NBA finals. Jerry Sloan is a great coach, and I prefer him over Karl.

IMHO, Sloan is a better coach.
