“There are days where I get down,” (George) Karl, who was fired by the Denver Nuggets in the summer of 2013 despite having been the Coach of the Year the season before, told USA TODAY Sports. “There are days where I’m disappointed that the phone’s not ringing. But I would say that on the majority of my days, I say, ‘George, you can’t get bitter now, because you’ve been blessed. You’ve been given jobs when you probably shouldn’t have gotten jobs.’ I was given an opportunity when I was 33 years old to coach a (Cleveland Cavaliers) team where I probably shouldn’t have been given that opportunity. So I look back at my career as a blessing. I want to do it one more time. My hope and my feeling is that the league will figure it out and give me that opportunity.”
