Former Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl has a few select words for his former player.
In his upcoming memoir titled “Furious George”, ex-NBA coach George Karl blasts Carmelo Anthony, Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith.
The book is slated to be released in January and a couple of controversial excerpts claims Anthony and Martin would have been better men if they had fathers in their life and he refers to Anthony and Smith as “spoiled brats.” The advance copy of “Furious George” has his former Denver Nuggets pretty unhappy.
On Thursday, J.R. Smith tweeted “Still trying to be relevant. Sad just sad.” Kenyon Martin also let out a serious of tweets which included “I didn’t have a father growing up. We all know that. What’s George Karl’s excuse for being a terrible person?” and “George Karl is selfish, unhappy, miserable, cowardly person. No wonder he’s been fired every place he’s coached.”
As far as Anthony is concerned, he was shocked when he found out about Karl’s true feelings about him.
“I just hope Karl finds happiness in whatever he’s doing,” Anthony said on Thursday. “I never knew I was a – what’s the word? – conundrum?”
In “Furious George,” Karl called Anthony “a user of people, addicted to the spotlight.” Karl coached Anthony and the Denver Nuggets from January 2005 until February 2011, when the all-star demanded to be traded to the New York Knicks.
This is just the beginning of the controversy that will transpire from this book. Karl may have gotten what he wanted from his former players, reactions.
