05:11 PM ET 05.04 | Following another early exit from the playoffs, some wondered if Nuggets head coach George Karl could be on the hot seat this offseason. According to team president Josh Kroenke, Karl's job is safe. Karl, who will turn 62 next week, has led Denver to the postseason every year since taking over in January 2005, although the team has won just one playoff series in that stretch. Many had high hopes for Denver this summer with the Western Conference looking relatively open for the taking, although a late-season knee injury to forward Danilo Gallinari really hurt their chances. They fell to the six-seed Golden State Warriors in six games in the conference quarterfinals.

Nuggets were starting to look good, but those injuries sure killed their momentum.

No coach can help McGee and Randolph. Basketball IQ of a potato.
