Denver Nuggets Coach George Karl Impressed With Tim Tebow

As excitement over Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos seems to grow by the week, even Denver Nuggets coach George Karl -- who is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan -- has gotten caught up in it. When asked about Tebow by media members, Karl had this to say:

"I’ve always felt that leadership by words is overrated – leadership by example, approach and attitude is what people follow. And passion and enthusiasm is contagious. There’s an energy that comes with that. He’s a guy who believes in himself, has a spiritual belief."

Karl added that there was no doubt in his mind that Denver would win after Matt Prater tied the score at 10. He was also asked which player might be Tim Tebow's NBA equivalent and suggested Spurs guard Manu Ginobili.
