Nugget Coach George Karl Talks Prostate Cancer

I don't know what's in the water in Denver, but shortly after George Karl's operation for prostate cancer, his assistant coach Doug Moe has been diagnosed with the same disease.

In an Associated Press article, George Karl says the the cancer ordeal has made him appreciate, and notice, life more than ever before.

Now that he has been given a clean bill of health - "all the tests and biopsies have come back perfect," he said - the coach sees there are other, more profound fights he must wage.

"The day when you get told is a tough day. It was a hard night," Karl said. "But once you get the news, it's living with it and getting stronger and knowing that you are going to be fine. And you are going to kick its butt. And those days got better every day."
