George Karl’s heart went out to Nuggets coach Michael Malone this past Monday night. All 50 million pieces of it. “When that stuff happens, you just get a heaviness — your stomach gets ugly,” Karl, the former Nuggets coach told The Post when asked about Jamal Murray’s gruesome knee injury. “Those moments, you have trouble speaking. It’s just like it freezes you, and it’s hard to say anything. It hurts.” He’s been there. On April 4, 2013, Karl’s Nuggets experienced a shock to the system similar to when Murray went down Monday night at Golden State. It was eight years earlier that Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari blew out his left knee during a home win over Dallas. Like Murray, the Italian was the Nuggets’ second-leading scorer at the time of his injury. “(Murray) was the man,” Karl said of the Nuggets’ star guard, who tore his left anterior cruciate ligament while driving to the hoop, a fall that ended his season . “He and (Nikola) Jokic took turns carrying the team, and … [Read more...] about Jamal Murray-less Nuggets “still can make noise” in NBA Playoffs.

close Video Biden on Chauvin verdict: Systemic racism a 'stain' on nation's soul The president says the guilty verdict 'sends a message,' but it's not enough on 'FOX News Primetime' The guilty verdict in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin "can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America," President Biden and Vice President Harris said Tuesday. That march, they added, has too rarely delivered "basic accountability" for Black Americans. America has a "long history of systemic racism," they said, calling it a "stain on the nation's soul." A panel of jurors found Chauvin guilty on Tuesday on all three charges in connection with the May 2020 death of George Floyd — the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying "I can't breathe" as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd's neck.

Waters would have lost her powerful position as the chair of the House Financial Services Committee if the resolution passed. The motion to table H.R. 330, McCarthy’s resolution to censure Waters, succeeded on party lines; 216 Democrats voted to table the bill, and 210 Republicans voted to have the House consider the bill for a floor vote. McCarthy introduced the resolution after Waters said outside of a police station in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, that she protestors were looking for a “guilty” verdict and urged protesters to get “more confrontational” do not get the verdict they desire.
