As if we needed any further evidence that the Van Gundys are the best siblings associated with the Association this side of the Lopezi (Brook and Robin), Magic coach Stan Van Gundy is officially sick and tired of your whining. After the guy you’ve probably never heard of who coaches the 76ers and is named Tony DiLeo spent his post-game press conference complaining about Dwight Howard regularly spending more than three seconds in the paint, Stan decided to publicly mock the guy. (both via Slam)
“Am I supposed to come up here and talk about the game. Or am I supposed to come up here and lobby for the calls I want the next game?” Van Gundy said. “Is that what it’s about now? We’re supposed to lobby for the calls we want the next game? Let’s just play the games…I guess that’s the only reason Dwight’s having success in this series. It has nothing to do with the fact that he’s good.”
If this guy would just buy a tie and stop wearing mocknecks constantly, he might have a shot at dethroning Pop as my favorite coach in the League. I mean, between Stan, George Karl and Don Nelson, the NBA could almost field an entire division coached by the Fat White Guys That Gave Up Years Ago club.
