Karl Gets Exercised

(Boulder-CO) The Denver Nuggets decided to exercise a contract extension for George Karl to be the coach of the team through 2010. Really no surprise to me as he and Doug Moe are good friends and old North Carolina alumni. Yea that’s right, Doug Moe has still got pull in this organization from behind the scenes, (and the end of the bench).

Stan Kroenke offered up these statements on the Nuggets Official web site. “We feel this is a very good day for the Nuggets organization,” said team owner Stan Kroenke. “As we’ve said all along, we’re committed to building a championship-caliber team. The cornerstone of all championship teams is excellent coaches and players, and a passionate fan base. We believe today’s announcement, coupled with the moves we’ve made throughout the offseason will take us closer to achieving our ultimate goal.”

I’m excited to see some stability brought to the Nuggets. Coach Karl is the best coach this team has ever had and to see the Nuggets solidify his services is a good thing. Now they just need to handle business against Efes- whoever from- Turkey and get this year off to a good start. Congratulations to George Karl and family and hopefully this is just the beginning of a legendary run in Denver!
