For whatever reason, George Karl has been intent on labeling the Thunder as a bunch of arrogant kids led by a cocky coach. Obviously Scott Brooks isn’t cocky and comparitvely to the rest of the league, the Thunder’s roster has to rank highly on the Not Cocky Scale.
I think Karl is trying to tap into his inner Zen Master and use some mind tricks to mess with the Thunder. Maybe because Karl sees his team as a bit overmatched and in need of a little motivation or something. Whatever the case is, I wrote about it at length today at CBSSports.com. My feeling? It’s going to backfire because I promise you, the Thunder have taken notice of it.
