AP Report...did I miss a trade and a whole season?

Kevin Martin and George Karl Form Bond

(George) Karl and (Kevin) Martin have even patched up their differences to the point where they've developed a cozy connection in which they frequently chat about life and basketball.

Not long ago, Martin was considered almost an albatross for the team. He was constantly hurt -- two microfracture knee surgeries in successive years -- and had an unwieldy contract (seven years, $93 million) that made moving him next to impossible.

Now, he's a vital part of a Nuggets team that eliminated the New Orleans Hornets in five games in the first round of the postseason.

What changed?

"I think a lot of it was getting out of my own way," Martin said. "Just getting past the bad attitude from injuries. I was a wreck. I wasn't no fun to be around, I'm pretty sure for (Karl) it was hard to coach me."

It was. <!-- <div class="larger" style="margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px;"></div> -->
