George Karl Slanders Andre Iguodala On His Birthday: “I Heard Moles Don’t Usually Live More Than 5 Years”
George Karl is one of the biggest coaching legends in the NBA, and also one of only nine coaches in league history to have won 1,000 games.
After a very successful tenure as the head coach of the Denver Nuggets his last coaching station with the Sacramento Kings didn’t have his career end on the best terms. But even though Karl can look back at a successful coaching career, it seems that he is still bitter about some of the missed opportunities with the Kings and Nuggets.
Karl is frequently slandering his former players DeMarcus Cousins, and Carmelo Anthony on social media. Now, Andre Iguodala got his come-uppance.
Iguodala, who played under Karl in his final Nuggets season, celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday. Instead of some congratulations from his former coach however, the four-time champion received some major slander instead and was called a mole.
“Damn Andre is 40 this weekend. Impressive. I heard moles don’t usually live more than 5 or 6 years in the wild.”

For a little bit of context: Back in the 2012-13 season, Karl suspected Iguodala of being a Golden State Warriors Insider during their playoff series. Even though they were playing against each other, Iguodala went to dinner with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson multiple times during the series. Then, a few months later, Iguodala declined his player option in Denver and signed with Golden State.
During said playoff series, many of the Nuggets players were shocked at how well the Warriors knew all there schemes and coverages.
