Nuggets assistant coach Moe has cancer

DENVER - Denver Nuggets assistant coach Doug Moe has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will have surgery next month. "The prognosis is good and I expect to be in training camp," Moe said Monday in a statement released by the team.

Moe's diagnosis comes five weeks after Denver head coach George Karl had successful surgery to treat the same cancer.

Karl met with Denver media Monday for the first time since his surgery and said he had received a clean bill of health.

"It wakes you up. It slaps you around," Karl said. "There was a period of time when I first found up that you wake thinking of death a lot. It's an uneasy feeling."

Moe is the winningest coach in Nuggets history, 432-357 from 1980-90. He served as a consultant for the team, but when Karl became head coach last season, he coaxed Moe back onto the sideline.

"Because I'm stupid, or something like that," was how the 66-year-old coach explained his decision to return.

Last year, Moe had a heart attack and bypass surgery. Doctors gave him a clean bill of health to return to help Karl.
