George Karl Gets Kicked To The Curb By The Denver Nuggets

George Karl took the superstar-less Denver Nuggets all the way up to the three-seed in the Western Conference, amassing the league's best home-record while winning the Coach of the Year. 

Apparently, the front office had higher expectations and fired Karl, who had a year remaining on his contract. Perhaps they haven't taken a look at their roster, because they don't have Carmelo Anthony nor anyone else who can bring them a ring. What they did have was one of the best coaches in the NBA, and those aren't easy to come by. 

They'll probably need more luck than Karl as they attempt to rebuild. Karl received interest from the LA Clippers before anyone knew he might be fired and will have no problems picking up another job there or somewhere else, should he choose to keep going.
