The player: Coby Karl, F, Idaho Stampede When I played in the D-League two years ago, most teams had one or two NBA guys with experience. Now they have five, six or seven guys. All of the facilities have improved, too. You really felt like you were in the minor leagues a couple of years ago. You’d go to a gym and see a couple of fans there, and you never knew if the locker rooms would have enough space. We’re even staying in nicer hotels now. I remember when Utah was in the league, we stayed on the side of the road at a truck stop, and we were eating at a Flying-J. There was a nice hotel five minutes down the road, but the team didn’t have the budget. ESPN.com

After Thursday’s game, the Blazers have a practice Friday before they make their final roster cuts to get down to the league maximum of 15 players. The Blazers already have 15 players under contract for the season, meaning Karl, Morrison and Justin Holiday will likely be cut Saturday. Teams have to turn in their final rosters Monday, but most will trim their rosters by Saturday to give players a chance to clear waivers by Monday. Oregonian

Since he got here, Coby Karl made headlines. Not just for the fact that his father is Nuggets head coach George Karl, but Coby "mistakenly" picked Brandon Roy's old #7 jersey, which seemed to Blazers fans as close to "MacBeth" as it could get. Though he hasn't been given the news, Coby somberly admits he thinks it's coming. Despite his great performances in the preseason, and the fact that some pundits think he can be the true back-up, Karl says people shouldn't kid themselves. CSNNW.com

The friendship skidded on a patch so icy that when Stotts became a head coach for the first time in 2002, the two men did not even speak, according to reports. Time has passed; they talk now but things still haven't gone back to the way they were. Still, Karl, currently the coach of the Denver Nuggets, asked for a favor. His son, Coby Karl, needed an NBA home and it was not a leap of faith for Karl to trust that the man he once called his best friend could help. " 'What's funny,' " Karl recently told Stotts. " 'There are two guys who I have loved very much in my life and I don't think they've had a fair opportunity, a real good opportunity to make an NBA team.' It was Terry Stotts when I coached him and also Coby now." Columbian

Through the 1980s and '90s, wherever Karl landed, so followed his No. 1 assistant. "They literally were hand in hand together," Coby says of his father and Stotts. "Doing everything." And through every step of their friendship, there was the freckled-faced boy. "He's like an old friend, or I'm his uncle," Stotts says. "It's a very special relationship." Columbian

On coaching (or coaching with) his son, Coby: “I still have a tremendous passion to coach my son and work with my son. I’ve talked to the Dunleavys about that, and they don’t seem to have that desire as much as I do. Coby is going to coach someday. I think he still desires to play a few more years, too.” Denver Post
