Must-read Stan Van Gundy interview

7

Stan Van Gundy interview with USA today is a must read, he is extremely open about everything, including of course the Dwight Howard situation.

Dwight Howard: "I don't have any regrets, you know"

5

He also said: "I really just wish some of the lies and some of the things being said didn't come out the way it did, you know". So he doesn't regret lying and crippling the franchise, he just regrets being caught. Add insult to injury...

Stats show SVG was right: Orlando's offense among the best

5

"3 pointer shooting teams won't win an NBA tilte?" This study shows that taking a lot of 3 pointers has become the most efficient way to score, and that even last seaon the Magic under Stan Van Gundy ranked among the best teams in good shot selection, and good shooting (eFG). (Even with Turk, Big Baby, Q, and J. Richardson having a horrible shooting year)

Are we too good to succeed in losing?

Orlando Magic, too good to rebuild by draft?

Stan Van Gundy: Magic management more to blame than Dwight Howard

"Mainly my contention was with what happened with management and ownership. That's what made the situation into what it became. Had it been handled better on that end, it would've never gotten to the point that they did."

OKC plan: it's not that easy.

So Howard was traded and we seem to be following the "OKC plan": tank, get cap space, young talent and rebuild. It seems many people think "top 5 pick=AllStar". The problem: this is not as easy at...

I know it's not the same in the states, but in Argentina the whole city would hate the guy, you just don't play for your former rival.

Hornacek to coach the Magic?

If the front office didn't want Jerry Sloan I don't see why they would want Hornacek.

Dwight goes on record saying he wants to be traded.

No more sources and rumors, he wants out. Go loyalty, whoo!

I am tired of the guard's league.

Watched the Heat game yesterday. Great close game. Till the end. With the game on the line the Heat decided they wanted to be fouled, and with today NBA rules it was easy for them to do it. If...

Otis Smith, a fair comprehensive trial of all his trades.

We all know how Otis ruined this team, but we often forget some good stuff he did. So here it is my attempt of a fair trial. I won't judge only on how things turned up, but as how they looked at...

Poll: Dwight or Stan?

So what do you think, should Orlando fire Stan, or should they trade Dwight Howard? Which is the right move to make? I know for many people this is an obvious question "There are many great...

SVG confirms Howard wants him fired.

+

"Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed rumors Thursday saying he knows that Dwight Howard went to management asking he be fired as coach, reports Howard Beck of the New York Times on twitter along multiple other journalists on the scene. Van Gundy said he was told this by people at the top of Orlando management. Minutes later Howard came over to the media scrum — unaware of what Van Gundy said — and put his arm around the coach."

Dwight Howard wants to fire Van Gundy?

12

If this is true Dwight should be traded. We already had an Allstar leading a mutiny against the coach and we all know how it ended. We should go the Utah way. If not, what is the next coach supposed to do? He would have to start the players DH wants, call the plays DH wants, if not he knows he is gonna get fired.

Stats: offense tendency to freeze, worst in years.

After Mike's great write up after the Bulls game I made some research. My search went as far as the year 2000, because the game has changed a lot. The Magic's offense seems to freeze quite often,...

"Marcin Gortat Paying just $21.7 million through 2014 for a true center averaging a 16-11 with 56 percent shooting? Sign me up.11 This had a chance to become Otis Smith's shrewdest signing ever, only he messed it up by flipping Gortat into $58.8 million of Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson. Otis Smith, everybody! He's the Reverse Black Friday — instead of everything being 50 percent off, it's 220 percent on." Bill Simmons

Dwight Howard needs more shots

Something must be wrong when the worst shooter in the league takes as many shots as your All Star. Against the Heat Dwight took 10 shots, Big Baby 10, Nelson 11, Von Wafer 9, Q Rich 9. Right now...
