Karl spoke Monday about his friendship with Majerus, who died of heart failure Saturday night. The two became friends while working at the Pete Newell Big Man camp at Stanford University in 1986 and the friendship grew over the years.
Karl said Majerus treated ``me like I was his brother,'' and that Karl's son, Coby, considered Majerus part of the family.
While Majerus was known as a college coach, Karl invited him to work with the Nuggets and offer insight over the past seven years.
Majerus, a Milwaukee native, compiled a 517-216 record over 25 years with Saint Louis, Ball State, Utah and Marquette.
