Ewing 'interested' in Knicks job

Knicks great Patrick Ewing said Wednesday he had paid his dues as an assistant and was ready to step up to a head coaching role -- and would certainly be interested in a return home to New York. Ewing, currently an Orlando Magic assistant, said interim coach Mike Woodson was doing an "outstanding" job since taking over from Mike D'Antonti at the Knicks. But if team...

Ryan Anderson is not the Most Improved Player

Ryan Anderson still gets overlooked in opponent gameplans. No matter how many 20-plus point, 3-point barrages he puts up, teams invariably leave him open and Anderson invariably finds a way to get himself involved on the offensive end. He may very well win the NBA's Most Improved Player Award. As a young player given the chance to shine, he fits the archetype of players who...

Jeff Van Gundy thinks Dwight Howard struck a deal with the Magic front office

The events that have taken place with Dwight Howard this season have been some of the most bizarre in recent NBA history. One minute, Howard was as good as gone. Whether it was via a trade or leaving in free agency, Magic fans knew they were enjoying their last days with Superman. Then in a moment’s notice, Howard was signing an agreement that stated he would not opt out of his...

Howard's lackluster effort suppresses potential

NEW YORK Never one to mince words, Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy was both livid and candid after his teams 108-86 loss to the New York Knicks on Wednesday night. And rather than attribute the blowout to one thing, he chose to blame it on everything. We were awful, a brusque Van Gundy said. You could go to everything, we were terrible. We turned it over too much, we didnt...

Magic's Anderson casts fellow teammates as Star Wars characters

For those who know me, know I am a huge Star Wars fan. It doesn't take much to get me started on the saga and that's why I totally was into the casting job Orlando Magic's Ryan Anderson did to his teammates recently. It all started when Glen Davis said the Magic need "Jedi force" for the rest of the season and Anderson just ran with it. "Stan (Van Gundy...

Jeff Van Gundy Is Not Pleased With NBA Bench Etiquette

Jeff Van Gundy is pissed again, this time because players are not joining their teams’ huddles during timeouts in games. Durring the Knicks’ blowout of the Orlando Magic last night in NYC, Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson chose to lounge on the bench pouting while their teammates huddled up to talk strategy. This infuriated Jeff Van Gundy more than his brother, Stan, who happens...

Big Baby's act growing old in Orlando, fined $35K for obscene gesture

The Orlando Magic knew what they were getting in Glen “Big Baby” Davis when they acquired him in a trade with Boston for Brandon Bass, but they probably didn’t anticipate the season-long antics along with him. The shenanigans continued earlier this week and made its way all the way up to the league office this time. On Wednesday, the NBA fined Davis $35,000 for an obscene...

Jeff Van Gundy Suspects Howard's Decision About Power

Jeff Van Gundy believes Dwight Howard's decision to opt-in and remain with the Magic was more about having power than loyalty.
