Carmelo Anthony, JR Smith & Kenyon Martin Respond To George Karl's Attack

By HHL Editors

George Karl is settling scores in his new autobiography Furious George.

In it, the ex-Denver Nuggets coach criticizes Carmelo Anthony for being a fame whore who didn't try on defense, labels J.R. Smith an entitled heist with a distracting posse, and writes Anthony and Kenyon Martin "carried two big burdens: all that money and no father to show them how to act like a man."

He also referred to the trio as "AAU babies."

Martin fired back, using Twitter.

Smith had his say:

He also retweeted a statement from an old teammate.

After initially avoiding reporters questions about Karl, Carmelo joked about the book after the Knicks defeated the Magic -- but decided not to criticize his former coach.

“It’s irrelevant to me at this point,” he said before telling reporters that they’ll understand his position “when I write my book, Stay Melo. Not Furious Melo.”
