Karl: Lakers Aren’t Unbeatable

failRealGM: Nuggets coach George Karl knows that the Lakers are a very good team, but refuses to believe that they are unbeatable.

“I think (the Lakers) are a great team, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think they’re in that ‘unbeatable’ category that people want to put them in,” Karl told the Denver Post.

“In the playoffs, you don’t have to play good games every night, you just have to play four good ones. They’re pretty powerful and have a great home-court advantage. But it would be a fun challenge to get to the conference finals.”

    Oh for sure the Lakers are beatable, in a regular season game, but if Karl thinks the Nuggs can take the Lakers in the playoffs, then he’s talkin’ out of his ass.

    w/e makes u sleep at night george. u kno u dont want none of this in the wcf

    George Karl thinks he’s so good? First he says the Lakers are better without Bynum and now he probably thinks the Nuggets can take on the Lakers? Was he high during the previous game when the Lakers beat the Nuggets? Sure I will agree the Nuggets have improved drastically, but there is no chance the Nuggets can matchup well enough with the Lakers in a 7 game series.

    Hey J dog from Florida is back. Since Clevend killed Boston that means if the Lakers win the Western Conference and maybe play Clevend for the NBA Championship they give us a tougher fight in the Eastern Conference out of all the onther teams even though the Lakers beat them twice this season. Right???

    the only chance the nuggets would have to beat the lakers is if Coby was starting instead of Kobe… but since that is not happening Karl should shut his fat mouth up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i hope the hornets fall to the 7 seed cause the would f u ck the nuggets up

    oh yea! coming from a guy who got swept last year

    Coach Karl should be thinking about getting his Nuggets team out of the first round of the playoffs instead of about the Lakers.

    Karl is right
    lakers have more problems than our record says.
    all it takes to lose a series is to blow one of our leads…
    it happens at least once a game
    if we blow 1 in poffs, especially vs portland or spurs we dont even get to the finals

    Open mouth…insert foot. George Karl just being George Karl. Drinking the coolaid again!

  • Zoom Kobe II

    he would love an opportunity to play the Lake Show in the Finals?!? Why?!? So Kobe could light up JR Smith again?!! So Kobe could lock him down like he did last year?? You know….now that I think about it…I wouldn’t mind Denver in the West Finals either. That would all but assure our spot in the league finals!
