While the Kings are reportedly considering "immediate dismissal" of George Karl, the embattled coach is trying to take it one game at a time. 

"I don't have any control over what other people are thinking or saying. That's their storm," Karl said via ESPN.com. "My preference would be it wouldn't be there. But there's always energy today. Then once something gets out, it magnifies and grows and becomes a storm. That's not my storm. My storm is the Boston Celtics."

According to multiple reports, Kings owner Vivek Ranadive and general manager Vlade Divac were “livid” after Friday night’s 128-119 loss to the Nets, the team’s sixth loss in seven games. As a result, they are “strongly weighing” firing Karl. Paired with frustrations between Karl and All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings locker room is questioning Karl's coaching philosophy. 

"The whole season, when you change your roster with 10 players, you're consistently trying to build better communication and a better connection and trying to get a commitment that's a winning commitment," Karl said. "Players question coaching. Coaching questions players. That's the way it's going to be. The truth of the matter is I think this team has hung together pretty well through a lot of ups and downs this year.

The Kings are 21-29 this season but have lost six of their past seven games. With three road games remaining before the All-Star break (Celtics, Cavs, 76ers), Karl might not make it to the break with a job. 

"I don't think I'm in limbo," Karl said. "I think I've got a heckuva challenge [against] a team that's played damn well — probably it's best basketball in the last six weeks. If you want to overreact to the last four or five games, that's somebody else's reaction, not my reaction. I think this team is still in a place that we can solve some problems and be good.

"Ten days ago, we were on a five-game winning streak, Karl added. "Every NBA season has scheduled parts that say, 'Hey, this is a tough time.' And since our beginning, our bad start, we've been a .500 tea

m. We're still a .500 team."

Karl, 64, took the head job in Sacramento at the All-Star break last season, leading the Kings to an 11-19 mark the rest of the way. He’s coached six teams during his 27-year career and is the fifth-winningest coach in NBA history with 1,163 victories.
