Sports Illustrated just sent me today their latest NBA Players Poll on “Which coach is most annoying during games?”. Unfortunately it wasn’t available yesterday because almost two-thirds of players selected the Orlando Magic’s Stan Van Gundy (65%) as their runaway ‘winner’ and I can only imagine his reaction if I would’ve had the opportunity to ask him about it after losing to the Lakers last night? I can guarantee his response would be anything but annoying-try entertaining! (you can hear Coach Stan speak in the previous post below) And it’s always worth the time to hear New Jersey’s Avery Johnson’s reaction to anything-I’ll have to find my favorite Coach Avery’s passionate enunciation of ‘TRANSITION DEFENSE’ and post it for you here asap. Now that’s a sound byte!
