Chatting about rumored candidate Stan Van Gundy with Brett Koremenos.
Anyone who what was said here?
Strong comments by Stan Van Gundy on Donald Sterling and the Clippers. We’ll bring back his comments in the third hour of @ChrisMannixShow
My concern with Stan is he pisses off his big men. Shaq and D12 both got rubbed the wrong way. The locker room was a 50-50 split. I think Jeff is the better diplomat and wins more of the locker room.
Shaq and D12 both have MONSTROUS egos though. Griffin might have a little bit of an ego, but he realizes he is far from a complete player so he would be willing to work with Stan. Jordan would just be glad to be playing finally.
Griffin has a work ethic that Shaq never had and D12 will never have. Griffin is a guy that works the hardest and only goof around when it’s a place to do that, something that D12 took a lot of time to learn.
Did you guys not hear what SVG said on NBC radio about the Clips yesterday? I don’t see this hire happening.
What did he say? I don’t listen to NBC radio and I can’t find it anywhere else on the Internet.
I believe this is the article http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/stan-van-gundy-tells-orlando-radio-station-won-134544481.html
He said something more recently than is and it was about the clippers specifically
Can you tell us what he said? I can’t find the clip anywhere…
He said something about Sterling allowing the players to run thimgs. Was on that Mannix show. Can’t seem to find a podcast.
Regardless of whether or not you think it’s true, if Stan does there is no way he comes to the Clips. The guy got fired because Dwight was running that Magic organization for his entire last year there. He is going to be wary of organizations that are run by star players and not star executives / coaches.
I liked the point that was made about Gentry, by lots of things people were saying I started tofeel uneasy about him but I had little to know real knowledge about him, how he coaches, etc. In the other Live, somebody, I think it was Jordan, talked about how Gentry would be a nice counter-weight to CP3’s personality, instead of just adding that same vicious pounding, in your face demanding like it would be with SVG. I don’t think that being demanding is a bad thing but to have that balance, it can be even better sometimes.
