With cancer in play, George Karl balances trials in basketball, life

But Karl was not going to stay down for long. "The battles I fight in the NBA now are easy compared to my goals and my ambitions of being a great father, a great grandpa, and to live on this Earth for a long time," Karl said. (CBS Sports)
