The Nuggets have yet to offer coach George Karl a contract extension, which is a surprise not only because all signs pointed to an extension this offseason for Karl, but also because, you know, George happened to do a pretty nice job with the Nuggets last year.

“I’m looking forward to getting back out on the court,” he said Thursday. “I’m humbled being one of 30 (NBA head coaches).”â†µ
For George Karl, that’s diplomatic. Maybe sarcastic, too. But diplomatic.
