Dwight Howard circus hits rock bottom

+
"The bottom line: Van Gundy is a wonderful coach, and he has been a very good coach for this set of talent specifically. I’m not sure why Howard wants him gone, but it will be hard for the Magic to find a better X’s-and-O’s coach. It will be hard for them to find someone who works more diligently, or someone who is more open to advanced statistics, new technology and other cutting-edge material that can inform a coach’s many decisions. Other teams will line up to get Van Gundy, if it comes to that. And if it does, the Magic and Howard should kick themselves." With VDN's position as coach being tenuous and names like Nate McMillan, Jerry Sloan, Phil Jackson, Larry Brown, Stan Van Gundy, and possibly even John Calipari--though I think it's NY or bust (back to Kentucky) for him--likely to be available, the Clippers have a chance at making up a little for not jumping on Rick Adelman when most of us knew they should have when they had the chance rather than sticking with Vinny for the final year of his contract. Stan Van should be at the top of the list should he become available.
