Former NBA Head Coach George Karl has a history with the Capital Region and in particular the Albany Patroons. As part of Karl's storied basketball coaching career he spent two season's right here in Albany where he won all his home games and a title in the 1990 - 1991 season. Karl is coming back to Albany for the premiere of "The Minor League Mecca" a movie all about the Albany Patroons franchise.

We had a chance to speak to George Karl on the phone and get a little preview into his memories from when he lead the Patroons. Give coach a listen and make sure you check out "The Minor League Mecca" when it premieres this Saturday at the Palace theater. The debut screening is free to the public with a suggested $5 donation to benefit Siena College Athletics. For more information about the film, screening and pre-show VIP reception, visit
