As you might expect, Karl thinks that the Nuggets were stupid to fire him. This shouldn't really come off as a huge surprise. Between the fact that most people think it would be dumb for their company to fire him, and also the fact that he had just won the highest award available in his profession, it would make sense for people to make the case that Karl getting fired was a bit ridiculous. He had won Coach of the Year a month prior, and led the Nuggets to a franchise record of 57 wins.
What else could possibly have been expected of him in Denver?
Like Karl says, it's definitely not easy to win in the NBA. Especially with a young team like the Nuggets that lacked a true superstar.
Karl also discussed a couple of other coaching jobs that, in his mind, indicate a terrifying trend in the NBA. The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers also fired their coaches, despite rather impressive 56-win seasons for each team.
What do you think? Are teams too quick to fire their coaches in the NBA? Should coaches have a longer leash? Or is this just how business is done these days?
