Former NBA coach George Karl memoir ” Furious George” paints a few NBA players as spoiled boys. In his new book scheduled to be on sell in January,
“Carmelo was a true conundrum for me in the six years I had him, He was the best offensive player I ever coached. He was also a user of people, addicted to the spotlight and very unhappy when he had to share it. He really lit my fuse with his low demand of himself on defense. He had no commitment to the hard, dirty work of stopping the other guy.”
Karl also wrote that Smith, now with the Cleveland Cavaliers, had “a huge sense of entitlement” and referred to his group of friends as a “posse,” a phrase over which Knicks president Phil Jackson took heat last month when he used it to describe Cleveland star LeBron James‘ business partners.
Smith tweeted in response to Karl: “Still trying to be relevant. Sad just sad.”
