The day when George Karl leaves the Denver Nuggets will be a sad one. Karl, who is the third-best coach in Nuggets history behind Larry Brown and Doug Moe, will hopefully retire rather than get fired.
Since taking over the team from Jeff Bzdelik and Michael Cooper back in 2005, he has led the team to the playoffs each year with one berth in the Western Conference finals back in 2009.
Karl has been nothing but good for the Nuggets, who, only two seasons before he came in, finished with the second-worst record in the NBA.
Hopefully Karl won't be leaving anytime soon, but when he does, the Nuggets should look at these coaches to replace him.
