Denver Nuggets coach George Karl says the team will focus on defense this season after spending the past two years trying to develop an up-tempo offensive style.

He plans to change the team's culture with new, young, high-energy players and a renewed commitment from his veterans, including Carmelo Anthony.

Karl says he hopes Anthony will apply the lessons he learned from the 2008 U.S. Olympic team, which used a tenacious defense to win gold in Beijing.

Anthony says he knows that stiffening the defense will start with him, and he promises to do whatever it takes.
