Nice column from Thomas George in the Post
"I listened to a coach in practice once, and it was so much information and so boring that I felt flooded and drowning, so I can imagine how the players felt," Karl said. "That's the thing about the Internet I don't like - it exchanges so much information, but it does not exchange wisdom. Good coaches are wise. They are clear and with common sense, street sense, and competitiveness can bring a good team a long way."
Karl is beginning to say that now that the Nuggets are a good team. Actually, he is beginning to challenge the Nuggets in new ways, telling them the regular season is exhibition but Broadway is in April, in the playoffs. He is telling them they can handle San Antonio and combat Phoenix. He is creating a culture of excellence.
"Maybe we are into a year where we are a big surprise," Karl said. "I love the challenge. I don't think offense or defense, I think how. Bear Bryant said that he hated to hear a team talk about how well they played instead of how they play. It's not so much about shooting or behind-the-back passes or shot blocks; it's how you play the game that makes your character show. It's pace and aggressiveness."
It is making the opponent feel the pressure of that ordered chaos.
"Pressure and pace create an atmosphere," he said, "where the other team just doesn't want to put up with that."
