CEO of the Orland Magic, Alex Martins received some harsh criticism from former Magic Coach, Stan Van Gundy.
Van Gundy went on a local radio station and had quite a bit to say about the CEO, none of it good. And for what it’s worth….I like SVG, but I like him even more now.
“I think Alex’s comments are based on the fact that Dwight and maybe others didn’t like me…and thinking somehow that’s important.”
“It’s a typical lack of understanding from someone who has no sports knowledge, who has never coached or played, who has never been in a lockeroom….it’s a naivete…”

There's a big part of me that wants to say this could never happen. Truth is, Derrick Rose could be the next superstar to bolt for greener pastures when his contract does expires with the Chicago Bulls. As much as we might not want to think that's possible.
