    Magic May Make Coaching Move - via Hoopsworld
     A growing number of people within the organization believe that Van Gundy will quit after the season, mainly because he doesn’t want to go through the Howard circus again next season. Sources close to the situation say that Van Gundy was ready for the organization to move Howard at the trade deadline so that the franchise could move on and once again focus on winning games. He’s not interested in going through that drama again next season.
     Van Gundy would be one of the top coaches on the market and would have no problem finding a job elsewhere. The New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers are two teams that would likely throw a lot of money at Van Gundy this offseason.
     Whether Van Gundy quits or gets fired, one name that has come up as a possible replacement in Orlando is Nate McMillan. As ESPN’s Marc Stein wrote on Friday, McMillan is someone that the Magic would target should Van Gundy leave. Howard would be behind the hiring since the two men have gotten to know each other during their time with Team USA.

    Is that the little Van Gundy? Or the pudgy Van Gundy?

    I don't believe Nate is the right coach for the Magic...or, rather...I don't believe Orlando is the right place for Nate and his style.  So much in life is about being in the "right place at the right time".  Nate in Orlando is neither.

    Van Gundy here?  Pass.  While qualified, I think PA can and will do better (I hope)

    @ Derrick Rose is MVP... when your team's leading scorer and MVP candidate happens to be the player responsible for facilitating as well, titles are extremely elusive.  Double-edged sword.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
