It was his mad moment, 36 seconds of unadulterated honesty in front of the metaphorical media firing squad. "Most of the people are going to say, 'You can't win without a star.' I'm tired of it. I'm fed up with it. I've been angry about it," Nuggets coach George Karl said last week on the, give or take, seven bazillionth time he's talked about winning without a star. "It's a team game. I know Miami won the championship and had a superstar, but they were the best basketball team. Our job is to try to become the best basketball team. I honestly think it can be done. I think it's silly to not even have one person stand up and say it could be done."
