Denver Nuggets coach George Karl was the coach of the Seattle SuperSonics team that lost to the Bulls in the 1996 NBA Finals. He was asked what he recalled of that series, which the Bulls won in six games, before the Nuggets faced the Bulls Tuesday night.

“I wish we had Nate McMillan,” Karl said. “He played nine quarters in the series and I think we won seven of those quarters. When he was on the court, we were the complete team that might have been able to beat them.”

McMillan, now coach of the Portland Trail Blazers, was hampered by a knee injury in that series.
