George Karl Quotes

46 George Karl quotes:

"There's a point in (every NBA season when) talent stops being important and chemistry and character become more important, and I think Phoenix is probably in that stretch. It's a situation that's got to be handled and probably once it's handled you're happy about it. There's some growing pains to it. There might be a loss that you might not have had, but in the same sense he might win a playoff game that the (team) would've lost."

"I do give Kenyon some understanding that he's going through a tough year. I know he's very frustrated.

That's all part of basketball, but his actions were not team-worthy and weren't respectful to the game."
