Am I the only one tired of these talking heads? Let's vote him off the ship.
the decisive blows are always struck left-handed

Michael Wilbon is white bread, but Stan Van Gundy is a mediocre coach, a master of panic, an inveterate screamer, and very hard to look at on the sidelines. I would dump him after the Celtics take the series.

Sports talk needs more guys like WIlbon and less ex-coaches and ex-players. The coaches and players never say a critical word about other coaches and players. It's lame stuff. Besides, for whatever reason, everyone on the set always laugh at the coaches and players jokes, even though they're never funny.

Well, that's not necessarily true; I've heard former NBA head Jeff Van Gundy (Stan's brother) and former NBA player Jalen Rose can be quite opinionated when discussing their former employees on ESPN. Mike Wilbon, though, has never been known for backing off criticism of any sport; it's what makes "Pardon the Interruption" (with fellow sportswriter Tony Kornheiser) such a great show...

I guess you didn't see the Chris Webber vs. Kenny Anderson blow up last season on TNT....... Webber called out the Magic players

Are you sure it was Kenny Anderson and not Kenny Smith who actually is on TNT?

Proffesional coaches have a responsibility to deliver, we see it all the time in soccer, if you dont deliver you get fired, you want job security? then win championships. Orlando Magic were about to be an embarrassment to the franchise. I agree with Wilbon, I listened to what he said, nothing personal, just analysis, t...hats what makes him a great presenter. Van Gundy has to deliver. GHO Snr.

Wilbon's ok on hyperbolic talking head shows like PTI, but his NBA commentary on ABC is the same old crap that he spews on PTI. Like his old pal Kornheiser he should stick to what he's good at (writing semi-entertaining articles) and stop trying to do real analysis.

Is that a picture of Ron Jeremy?

Stan Van Gundy is doing alright. One issue is the discrepancy between player pay and coach pay. Top players become difficult, being considered more important than their coaches, as often as not.

I agree with what President Obama suggested to Lebron James, about finding a team and a coach you respect. But it's not so easy for players to respect their coaches these days, when they get paid several times as much, and failing to get a championship may result in the coach's firing first.

I wouldn't blame Van Gundy's coaching for the Magic collapse. It's the personnel. Rashard Lewis AWOL. Vince Carter (Worthless). Then with exception of JJ Reddick, the bench has not showed up. They were supposed to have the deepest bench in the NBA.

Exactly, what can Stan do when Vinsanity shoots 1-9??

Yes, Van Gundy might get fired if they lose to the Celtics. They had home court advantage and got their butts reamed.

Mike Brown was fired, Van Gundy, you're not Phil Jackson. Get over yourself and get your team ready for the Celtics why don't you?

What a brilliant move that would be- fire the Magic coach because Celtic Kevin Garnett is back at full strength.
