Crisis in Orlando

Apparently, Dwight went to the management in Orlando and ask them to fire Stan Van Gundy. Someone from the higher ups leaked this to Stan who went ahead and revealed it to the press.

Absolutely right decision by Dwight, Stan Van Gundy is really an awful coach, he knows how to coach some things on a basic level and is average on the technical aspect, but is an absolute nightmare in terms of managing players on a personal level. Whoever leaked it to Van Gundy is a scumbag and should be fired, and Van Gundy is a moron for telling the press since now there is no chance whatsoever of fixing the bridge between him and Dwight.

I hope either the Orlando management does fire Van Gundy or he leaves them in the dust and goes to a competently run team.

And Dwight will probably get his way. If he doesn't, he is definitely leaving. Practically a win-win for Howard.

And I agree, Stan Van Gundy is a very bad coach.

I don't like Van Gundy either but Dwight's also a big coward. One of the biggest problems they have is Jameer Nelson. He's not a true point guard. He's one of the reasons holding them back besides Van Gundy being a mediocre coach.

It is more then obvious that Orlando Magic do have some serious issues: since there are a lot of coaches around but only 1 Dwight Howards, the smartest thing for the Magic management to do is cut SVG loose.

Further to that, I echo what shiaben said above regarding J. Nelson - he is too inconsistent and not exactly the type of the PG D12 needs.

stan vun gundy had his problem with shaq oneal too at miami heat.
He has to go, he has to go.


As for howard, he aint no shaq. Nowadays basketball best players are guards and forwards!

Dwight's just a big diva, I mean most odds are he won't stick around in 2 years time and he just makes everything in that franchise be even more terrible.

He really hurt his reputation with this whole saga.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

I agree Stanko, I'm quite surprised with Howard's actions in the past year or so. Really lost a lot of respect for the guy.

Feel very bad for the people of Orlando. It's a great city, should have probably been close to winning a championship as far as a couple years back if they made the right decisions. Now everything is going from players, coaches, management, I mean everything, will blow up after this season.

As a Bulls fan, I hope such clowns stay away from our franchise. We don't need "flip flop" mentalities in the Bull's uniform.

Rumors now circulating that Dwight will demand a trade after the season. If true, what a joke this guy has become...:rollani:

Maybe most said a sweep, but I said in 5 games.

You are aware though that Orlando still sucks, regardless if they advance or not?

Stan Van Gundy likely just coached his last home game for Magic
