George Karl refers to the Knicks situation as “hell”


As KWAPT pointed out in yesterday’s Dump, the Knicks are a mess. They’ve lost 9 straight and, at 3-13, occupy the basement of the Eastern conference. Carmelo Anthony is arguing with his teammates in huddles.

Former Nuggets coach George Karl was asked about his future in coaching and casually referenced the situation in New York:

Q: So what’s the plan? Wait for the phone to ring?

A: There are days I wish it would ring and there are days I don’t want it to ring. I mean, I watch the Knicks play and I wouldn’t want to be in that hell for a million dollars. It’s just New York City and the Garden and the immensity of the pressure. I think Mike Woodson is standing up to it with tremendous integrity.

This catastrophe couldn’t happen to a better “superstar” or franchise.

The cherry on this crap sundae? Even if the Knicks end up in the lottery, their 1st round pick is going to Denver (or Orlando).

    The first thing I said after the Knicks beat us in the playoffs was that the Celtics would win a title before the Knicks. I said the same thing in 94. I hope I don’t have to wait 14 years to say I told you so. Knick fans don’t realize they won’t have a pick in the lottery. Neither will the Nets for that matter.

      Wow, it’s not even protected? Forget Knick fans, somebody should have told Carmelo a month ago mwahahaha!

    Because why protect the draft pick you’re trading, when you’re trading for *Carmelo Anthony*? I mean, the guy *loves* New York, therefore you’ll win a title with him. Because that’s how things work.

    In movies sometimes and TV.
