Karl wants Anthony to lead by 'example and attitude'
“I still don’t quite comprehend exactly what’s going on and I don’t know if I want to comprehend what’s going on. Sometimes you get too much information. To me, I would just rather have ‘Melo and I on the same page and I think we are. The other thing is ‘Melo and I talked about if you were gonna be here I want to tell you what I was thinking about telling you. I told him that. I told him you gotta make a commitment to be a great player and make a commitment to make the next step to the next level. You still can make another step. The step I think that needs to be made is on the defensive end of the court and as a leader and a professional leader. Not a leader by voice, but by example and attitude.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: His smirk and attitude polarizes, but Coach George Karl calls it like he sees it. Usually, he’s right, too.
Karl, a former back-up point guard, is also right. Anthony has the potential to be much more than a scorer.
Whether in Denver or elsewhere, Karl wants him to take the next step.
