Despite being eliminated in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers continue to live rent-free in some people's minds. One of those people is the former Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl.

After the Denver Nuggets suffered a disappointing Game 7 loss at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, the 73-year-old coach took to social media. He started his post by talking about the Nuggets but couldn't help himself to try and attack the Lakers.

George Karl Still Salty About the Lakers After All These Years

Calling Laker fans "trolls and minions", Karl is claiming that they are celebrating Denver's downfall. Even if this were true, it doesn't negate the fact that Karl is just a sore loser when it comes to the Lakers.

When he was the head coach of the Seattle Supersonics, Karl got swept by the Lakers in 1995 and lost in five in 1998.

When he moved on to coach the Denver Nuggets between 2004 and 2013, he continued to come up short in the Western Conference while the Lakers made three straight NBA Finals and won two. In the 2008-2009 season, the best year of his Nuggets tenure, Karl lost 4-2 in the Conference Finals to Kobe Bryant & Co. The Lakers went on to win the NBA championship that year.

So, it is understandable why Karl is attempting to troll the Lakers in every chance he gets. The Nuggets have found more success than the Lakers in the last couple of years but Karl himself clearly has had nothing to do with it.
