SVG's heading to Motown!
People sometimes wonder why a guy like Jeff Van Gundy hasn’t checked back into coaching in the NBA, but the answer’s pretty simple – he’s just got it way too easy right now.
I think we all need to take a seat, maybe form a circle and just relax for a few minutes.
After essentially being <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/04/dwight-howard-and-stan-van-gundy-press-conference">ousted by star center Dwight Howard</a> in April, the question wasn't if Stan Van Gundy would be fired but when his termination would occur.
I took a couple weeks off from doing these here ROFLMNBAO posts for two reasons: 1) because the last two weeks of the season were soooooo boring and B) I forgot.
Earlier this month, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/pinglocal6">Orlando’s Local 6 Sports Director David “Ping” Pingalore</a> reported that Dwight Howard told Orlando Magic management that he wanted coach Stan Van Gundy fired.
Man, those New York Knickerbockers sure know how to capitalize on a golden opportunity.
Orlando Magic center and free-agent-to-be Dwight Howard has been putting together yet another great season as the NBA’s best big man.
Much to no one’s surprise, the Oklahoma City Thunder are currently the best team in the NBA, as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook continue their strange “I’m not better than him but I’m secretly better than him” routine, and the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat have all but locked up their eventual meeting in the Eastern Conference Finals.
To say that things aren’t going well for the Orlando Magic would be an incredible understatement.
The hat tip says Stan Van Gundy looks like a doppleganger of Ron Jeremy, which in turn makes him remind you of Mario Mario, but I think he's got more of a Paul Bearer vibe to him.
Hot off of David Stern’s remarks about the Orlando Magic’s poor play and his expectations of silence, Stan Van Gundy is being dragged a little further through the proverbial mud today, as a new Sports Illustrated poll of 138 NBA players declares him far and away the most annoying coach in the NBA.
As the Orlando Magic flirted with elimination and a 3-1 deficit last night heading into Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Orlando head coach Stan Van Gundy and Pardon the Interruption host Michael Wilbon were locked in a war of words.
Join as we watch would could potentially be the last NBA game of the season.
It's now okay to don your jerseys, authentics only please.
Before I start my hat goes off to Orlando.
