PBT Podcast for Nov. 22: Stan Van Gundy talks Bobcats, Blazers, Knicks, more

See, you can get through a full interview with Stan Van Gundy and not bring up Dwight Howard once.

Stan Van Gundy, former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic head coach, joined myself and  Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio  for the Nov. 22 edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast.

Rather than talk about the tired Howard subject, we chose to focus on the coaching jobs guys were doing around the NBA. That includes Van Gundy’s former assistant Steve Clifford who has the Bobcats off to a 5-5 start, plus we talk some of what Brett Brown and Jacque Vaugn face in their jobs.

Then we move on to talk about Portland and Terry Stotts, the challenges Mike Woodson faces — to say Stan Van Gundy hates the Knicks roster is an understatement — and what Jason Kidd faces as well.

Plus there is a little Kobe Bryant return talk, as is required by law. Kobe talk is at the start, before Van Gundy jumps in.

    Charlotte finally getting recognized.

      Going 5/5 is worth recognition for a team that has barely cracked 20 wins the last couple seasons?

      • whoisrdymlz - Nov 22, 2013 at 3:50 PM

        Yep. Watch them play.

    Why all the chatter about Kobe, an old player struggling to recover from an injury who hasn’t played a second this season? Waste of air time.

      Kobe is news, he’s the Hulk Hogan of the NBA. Sure he’s never going to compete for another championship (his EGO won’t let him play 2nd or 3rd option) but it’s hype for the Lakers & NBA fans
      just wanting to see if he can do it at his age.
      Expect the fallen Lakers to ride Kobe all season, it sells seats. Don’t expect the lakers to give him a max contract or close to it, they’re not stupid enough to build around him at his age.
      Like you, most are sick of the media reporting every time Kobe breathes, I am. I see it as Kobes retirement tour, like all the greats before him (I seen a lot) Kobe will be gone soon.

    Stan “The Mouth” Van Gundy.
    A loss was never his fault & every win he took credit for & he never stopped flapping his mouth.
    For the loss he would throw anyone & everyone under the buss, but himself.
    When the team was winning all he would talk about was how HE had the team prepared & how he outsmarted the opponent.
    I knew he couldn’t just go away quietly, he’s “The Mouth”, Stan Van Gundy.
    (Like his brother he won’t be asked to coach any good teams or contenders)
