Wait a minute…Karl is staying now? Maybe.

Maybe Vlade Divac changed his mind about George Karl's future, but if the players give up on him on Wednesday it is unlikely they will stay committed to him.

Maybe Vlade Divac changed his mind about George Karl’s future, but if the players give up on him on Wednesday it is unlikely they will stay committed to him.

It was a foregone conclusion last night and this morning that after the Kings 120-100 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, head coach George Karl would be fired by the All-Star break. But apparently after a sit down conversation between Karl and general manager Vlade Divac, the Kings remain committed for Karl, one the basis that he made changed to practice – eliminating voluntary shootarounds – and making defensive changes. Well, they are at least committed to him for now.

Wednesday night is going to be very important for Karl. The Kings will cap off their horrible road trip with their fourth-straight and seventh away game in nine games against the Philadelphia 76ers. As terrible as the Kings are playing right now, the 76ers are by far the worst team in the league with just an 8-44 record, and once again no visible desire to win.

If the Kings don’t beat the 76ers or even look good against them, Karl probably won’t be sticking around even despite what the latest reports about the change of mind of the Kings’ decision-makers.

If the Kings players have given up on Karl, there is nothing that can save him, but if the guys bought back into what their future Hall of Fame coach is saying, then maybe the Kings will be keeping him around. We just have to see how it plays out.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
