It didn’t take long for the strong sense of humor of Stan Van Gundy to come out Tuesday afternoon.  “I’m just glad I don’t have to explain a loss,” said Van Gundy.  “Why I did this…why I did that… it’s good.” Van Gundy was a guest speaker at a luncheon for the Canisius College “cage club” at the Hyatt in downtown Buffalo.  After, he made his way over to the Koessler Center to speak with the media.
