08:06 AM ET 04.01 | Nuggets coach George Karl has more faith in his son than perhaps NBA front offices these days. [Karl] is miffed NBA teams haven't given another chance to [Coby Karl]. Coby is averaging 13.2 points, 6.2 assists and 3.7 rebounds for the D-League's Idaho Stampede. Coby, 30, hasn't been on an NBA roster since finishing the 2009-10 season with the Nuggets, when George Karl was sidelined by cancer. The coach believes Coby gets overlooked because he's older and NBA teams are seeking younger prospects. "Right now, you go to the D-League and no one looks at Coby Karl because he's (30) years old," said George Karl. "If he's the best player in the D-League, he still should get picked up. It should not be based upon youthful potential."

If he's so good, why doesn't his dad pick him up again?

Maybe George just wants someone to give Coby some Money... so daddy can finally stop subsidizing his 30 year old kid.

Because his team is one of the teams that don't believe in him...lolWhat an oxymoron. You have a chance to give him a spot on that 15 man roster but you chose not to and than here you are complaining about your son not making it in the NBA...smh

I busted out laughing when I read this...

13 points in the D-League equals 3pts in the regular league...
And there isn't a large market for 30 year old bench warmers!
