Karl puts Denver on blast, calls firing 'very stupid'

When Nuggets president Josh Kroenke informed George Karl, he was being fired as coach, the recently named NBA Coach of the Year maintained his reputation for being blunt: ”I think I should tell you, I think it’s very stupid.”

Karl slammed the Nuggets for his firing and discussed his future in an interview with The Denver Post. Here are some excerpts:

On Karl’s feelings upon being fired:

“I’m not going to stand here and justify my (playoff) record,” Karl said, but he believed the franchise was on an upward tick, “and to blow that away, it leaves you helpless, speechless, powerless, sad, a lot of words.”

Did Karl see his firing coming?

“I never had a meeting where there was disappointment, in that part of it, voiced to me. I heard through whispers. I’m sorry that 57 wins doesn’t make you happy. I think it was a special season because of the connection this team has with each other and with the coaching staff and with the city. The fans like this team. The staff likes each other. And to blow up that connection is, in my opinion, extremely disrespectful to coaching.”

Lol. My first thought was "Crap theyre still on the books for Allen Iverson's contract?" wrong AI i guess.

I heard Igoudala opted out so any thoughts on wanting him if we cleared up some room or not worth it since he's not a big man?
