Well, I am sure every coach wants their over-rated, rocks for brains big men to be like Tim Duncan. I want a million dollars and a three way with Jessica Biel and Christina Hendricks. Reality will, unfortunately for George and I, continue to kick us both in the junk.

My New Years Resolution was to be more like a young Brad Pitt. So far...nothing.

Same here, for well over a minute straight. I didn't bother reading it because I figure it'd just make it worse.

And I want Javale McGee's athleticism and length so I can make it in the NBA.
But do you know what they call a fool, who's full of himself and jumps into the path of death because it's cool?

He basically said he just wants him to be less worried about making the spectacular play and just focus on making the solid, fundamental basketball play. For instance, instead of blocking a shot 10 rows into the stands, block the shot in a way that you can retain possession of the ball. Or instead of trying to throw down a highlight reel dunk in traffic, just put the ball in the basket the easiest way possible. Just play solid fundamental basketball, like Duncan does. Not actually play like one of the greatest big men ever(though that would obviously be nice too).

Nothing too ridiculous in what he said, IMO.

Karl should want McGee to play more like Duncan, but McGee just isn't capable. He's been in the league 5 yrs, and is still his same old dumb self. He's all flash, no substance.

Players like Javale McGee exist to ward off scouts not to draft purely on athleticism yet they keep on drafting these dudes.

I want Dwight to play like Shaq, but it aint happening.

Some of you need to actually read what Karl said, he wants him to make the easier play and quit trying to do the spectacular highlight real plays.

I want Tyrus Thomas to play like Kevin Durant. Can George Karl arrange that too?
