Outside of the Buffalo Bills losing four straight Super Bowls and Michael Jordan’s pushoff spoiling the Utah Jazz’s first title hope, the mid 2000s Denver Nuggets team may be the franchise on the cusp still plagued by What Ifs.

During Carmelo’s first 9 seasons in the league, the Nuggets lost in the first round of the playoffs for the first 5, were bounced by the Lakers in the Conference Finals, and then lost in the first round the final 3.

Just brutal.

George Karl, who was awarded NBA Coach of the Year shortly after trading Carmelo to the Knicks, has come under fire from Melo Truthers who are irate the former NBA coach said something everyone already knew.

In response to the newly-minted Lakers’ comments about his failure to win a championship keeping him up at night, Karl threw an innocent-enough zinger at his former player.

And then doubled down.

And kept going.

Karl may have flown a bit too close to the sun. Melo stans harbor the anger of never winning shit.

On CBS Sports’ Tiki & Tierney, Karl acknowledged that Melo helped “turn the franchise” around in Denver before doubling down on his criticism.

“He’s a powerful player. But he’s an individualist, and he likes to score more than he likes to play defense.”

Karl goes on to say that in many ways the Denver coaching staff “failed” to motivate Carmelo to understand that he is “good enough to win championships.”

Carmelo has yet to comment on Karl’s comments because he’s incapable of even defending himself. Boom roasted.
