It was awkward. Dwight put his arm around Stan and Jim looked straight into the camera.

That video is ridiculous lol.



I don't care if he asked for him to be fired. You have to be an adult and realize what's going on out there and do your best to have your coach's back, at least in public.



SVG is hilarious.

He's done a pretty crappy job as a coach anyway, he deserved to be fired whether Dwight asked for it or not. It's unfair to pin this on Dwight anyway, if he's going to stay then obviously he's going to want to shake things up, because they clearly aren't working.

This seems like it will be a suitably awkward and angry ending for the angry little coach.
You need to step back from this a get a little perspective. SVG is a good coach and has done a fine job with what he's had. Otis Smith shackled the franchise w a bum like Lewis (who btw Dwight wanted) then gave him another bum in Arenas (who Dwight also wanted). In addition, Howard airing all his dirty laundry and acting like a spoiled brat has totally alienated his teammates and now he's reaping what he's sown. This dude is a fraud and will never be a go to guy. If he wants to be the man he needs to act like a man. He has acted like a spoiled 15 year old girl.

Actually that's untrue. All there ever was were rumors etc. Nothing directly from D12.

You're blaming Dwight for the Magic signing Lewis and Arenas? Give me a break. This latest drama didn't come from Dwight's mouth, it got leaked BY SVG. Dwight is rightfully sick of having his career dragged down by a franchise that is utterly incompetent from top to bottom, and yeah part of that is his loudmouth coach who isn't getting him enough shots.

The stuff you're saying is downright false.

If the Magic fire Stan Van Gundy, they're morons. D12 might not even remain in a few years, but SVG most definitely would have. Good luck replacing SVG with a better coach.

Unless Phil Jackson or Jerry Sloan come out of retirement and sign with the Magic, you've got very few choices of coaches as good as SVG. I guess they can give Mike D'Antoni a try, right?

Blaming Dwight? No. I'm saying those were moves that he wanted and got, and where did it get them? Are you denying that he's acted like a spoiled baby this year? Or that his actions have effected the team negatively? Man, you are in denial. I don't understand, his coach was asked a question, to which he responded with an honest answer, which isn't speculation, it was true. So what have I said that was false. Stop being an apologist for some fake Christian who stalks porn stars and has babies with groupies. Sorry, when it comes to integrity I'll take SVG every time buddy.
