I'm actually a Nuggets and Heat fan. However, the NBA ruined their postseason with the game 5 decision penalizing Phoenix. objective heads should have prevailed. Fans should stop watching the Spurs series and send the message.

Why would you even post that first comment about the Spurs?... Irrelevant.

Anyways....
I wish him the best.
He handled a real BS situation like a gentleman, and never thought to open up and bad-mouth the Heat organization.... Classy.
Good luck Stan.
.... especially with that Indiana team.

As a Denver Nugget and Miami Heat fan, I don’t know what you’re doing watching the San Antonio Spurs the “softest, I mean the dirtiest team in the NBA,” play against the Utah Jazz? It’s probably had something to do with both your teams sitting this one out and/or you couldn’t find anything better to do on Sunday besides watch a good basketball game?

For your information,“objective heads,” did prevail, that why Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw spent game 5 on the bench. However, if you watched game 6 (I bet you did) and with both players playing, the Phoenix Suns didn’t have the same intensity they displayed in game 5!! In my opinion, the Suns played better in game 5 than in game 6 with Stoudemire and Diaw in the lineup. In the world of reality, Suns don’t have an excuse because they could have easily taken game 6 and returned home to closeout.

Neither one of the Van Gundy's has the basketball intelligence to be a winning coach in playoff situations...but then again this is the NBA, a recycle of the establishment

If he thinks Riley was demanding, wait until he works for Bird.

Nothing against Van Gundy, but the NBA just keeps circulating the same managers no matter how lousy their previons performance was. It seems one of these guys has to fall of the bench and suffer a fatal injury before he's not in the running for another head coaching job. They're almost as bad as corporate America. LOL

Amen. Stan is an excellent coach who always prepared his team well for every game and worked to develop younger players. He didn't rely on communicating through the media before his pre-game shave and grease job, like the current guy. I wish him well and hope it works out for him. He did good by us.

Old Stan is going to gain 100 pounds living in the freezing ass cold midwest add the stress of Larry Bird breathing down your neck and Pacer fans who have been waiting for a championship. Stan is going to have to prove himself quickly that he can do anything outside of Riley's shadow.

Good for Stan. Too bad we will lose one of the best coaches in the NBA. SVG was given a new roster every year, and he had them competing well into the post season, when every other coach whines that it takes a few years to get them to play together. We'll need to respect the Pacers now.
