George Karl didn't know what we were talking about. On Friday, a little over 24 hours before the Nuggets and Warriors tip off Game 1 of the Western Conference 3-6 first-round matchup, Karl was asked about the Warriors "elevator play." Karl looked blankly at the reporter that had asked. He'd heard about if from me and wanted to get Karl's thoughts on it. I was on the perimeter, waiting on another interview and ducking the swarm around the Denver head coach. I held up my iPad armed with the play to show him what he was being asked about while the reporter diagrammed it.
