Former NBA coach George Karl blasts Carmelo Anthony in new book

Former NBA coach George Karl was never one to avoid confrontation but he brought it to a new level in his new book, "Furious George." Karl ripped Carmelo Anthony, one of his former players on the Denver Nuggets, for being "selfish" and a "user." George Karl Karl called Anthony's trade to the Knicks in 2011 "a sweet release for the coach and the team." He also laid into both Kenyon Martin and Anthony for not having a father figure. "Kenyon and Carmelo carried two big burdens: all that money and no father to show them how to act like a man."
