    Phil Jackson

    When the Lakers take the court Friday night to take on the banged up Golden State Warriors, Bernie Bickerstaff will coach the Los Angeles Lakers.

  5. Stan Van Gundy says he’d have no issue coaching Dwight Howard in the future

    Nov 6, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    There’s no other way to put it: Last season was a complete train wreck for the Orlando Magic. Dwight Howard held the team hostage with his trade demands, went back and forth as to whether he would or wouldn’t re-up with the team, and even at one point opted in for the final year of…

  6. Stan Van Gundy to be regular NBC Radio contributor, television analyst for college game

    Nov 1, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Oct 23, 2012, 12:17 AM EDT

    Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

  10. Winderman: Summer shows love of the three not NBA fad

    Aug 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    610x-4

    Well, this was quite unexpected, but apparently we’ve arrived in the summer of three love. It started with the Heat dropping a championship-winning barrage of 3-pointers on the Thunder in the deciding game of the NBA Finals, Mike Miller somehow displaying anguish and rapture at the same time while hobbling from arc to arc on…

    Apr 19, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers watches his team in Boston

    Across the board, players say they like playing for coaches who once played in the NBA. It’s not a requirement, but players feel it gives the coach an understanding of what they go through. So it shouldn’t be a shock that Doc Rivers tops Sports Illustrated’s annual poll of players on the question of coach…

  14. Magic GM Otis Smith says Dwight Howard did not ask him to fire Stan Van Gundy

    Apr 7, 2012, 11:51 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy made quite a bit of noise on Thursday, when he went public with his knowledge that Dwight Howard asked the team to fire him. This information came right from the top of the organization, Van Gundy said, so there must be some truth to it, right? Not so much,…

  15. Stan Van Gundy says he’d like to return as Magic coach. Right.

    Apr 7, 2012, 8:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Washington Wizards

    There is nobody on the planet that thinks Stan Van Gundy will be back to coach the Orlando Magic next season. Not Jeff Van Gundy. Not Mrs. Van Gundy. Not the president of the Van Gundy Fan Club… actually, there is no Van Gundy fan club. Yet, Stan Van Gundy is going through the motions.…

    Mar 29, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic's head coach Stan Van Gundy directs his team during their NBA basketball game against Miami Heat in Miami

    Charles Barkley said it, so we should just assume it was absurd to begin with. But it got a lot of play. Barkley said he thought Kentucky could beat the Raptors or Bobcats. In case you wanted some thoughts besides mine on why that idea is absurd, I bring you Magic coach Stan Van Gundy.…

  18. Quote of the day: Stan Van Gundy on pizza etiquette

    Mar 27, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Stan Van Gundy

    “I mean, everybody’s on their feet, standing ovation and the whole thing and then a guy in the crowd next to me sitting baseline said everybody gets a free pizza, so I guess that was exciting. That was the loudest the crowd was all night. They were into that. That was a big basket by…

    Mar 20, 2012, 8:39 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Stan Van Gundy

    Time to talk about the contract extension in Orlando… no, not that one. We’ll all be forced to be back on Dwight Howard watch this summer, we can give it a rest until then. But during the whole Howard saga there was that report that the Magic told Howard if he signed an extension he…

  20. Winderman: Why Orlando has to trade Dwight Howard

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    That’s a pretty impressive piece of trivia that Stan Van Gundy is about to be attached to, if you believe the scuttlebutt: the first NBA head coach to be fired by both Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard (if you accepted the speculation back in December 2005 with the Heat). But if we actually decide to…

  21. Magic deny report Howard can decide fate of coach, GM

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Stan Van Gundy

    It’s nothing new for a star player to have sway over who gets chosen as coach or in the front office. Magic Johnson pushed Paul Westhead out to door after they had won a title, and the Clippers were rumored to make that pitch to LeBron James a couple of years ago (but I’m sure…

    Dec 23, 2011, 11:58 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Stan Van Gundy

    Dwight Howard and Stan Van Gundy sat down and talked for over an hour not long after training camps opened, and you can bet the topic was not the best way to brine a turkey before cooking it on Christmas. Their relationship is going to impact the Magic on the court and ultimately if Howard…
