George Karl's coached some of the greats — Shawn Kemp, Gary Payton, Ray Allen(notes), Carmelo Anthony(notes), Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson — and he doesn't think any of them hold a candle to you, baby. He thinks you've got it. More it, in fact, than anyone he's coached since Joe Barry Carroll. Yeah. That much it. That's why he's so excited to high-five you, baby. Don't leave him hanging.
(In all seriousness, big ups to Karl and the members of his Denver Nuggets who helped make the holidays a little brighter for patients at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver on Thursday. The amount of community and charitable work that NBA teams do is amazing, and it's never more important or wonderful than it is during the holiday season. Great work, guys.)
Best caption wins a pretty chill high-fiving robot. Good luck.
In our last adventure: The coach of the Detroit Pistons loves the Macarena.
Winner, stophatin21: "OK. This is gonna get a little weird. But I'm going to need TWO dragons."
Runner-up, JHawk81: "Two tequila shots, please. He'll take a double. His team is about to be 6-12."
Second runner-up, Fighting Maroon: There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is a dimension where Pat Fraher can play the old horns-behind-the-head trick on his imaginary wife as he holds his imaginary son, all while John Kuester does a horrible Jason Richardson impersonation. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call ... The Twilight Zone. (NOTE: I'm not sure if Pat Fraher has a wife or children, but even if he does, for the purposes of this bit, he's imagining another, more different family.)
