Stan Van is currently unemployed, so maybe that's why he's so mad at the Nets
According to an ESPNNewYork.com report from a few days ago, former Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy thinks the Brooklyn Nets have "looked like a bush league organization [for] much of the year."
In an appearance on NBC Sports Radio this Monday, Van Gundy -- who was fired in May 2012 by the Magic -- bashed Jason Kidd's underwhelming team for its poor play so far in the 2013-14 season, which has resulted in a dismal 11-21 record, even after the team's momentous win on the road against the Oklahoma City Thunder last night.
Even though the Nets may have turned a corner in their season with their major triumph in yesterday's win, they are still 10 games under .500 and out of playoff contention, at least at the moment. Somehow, the fact that Brooklyn has not been living up to its lofty preseason expectations is enraging to Stan Van Gundy, who happened to ...

Tweet The 2013-2014 Brooklyn Nets season took another strange and embarrassing turn on the last day of 2013. While getting waxed 113-92 by the Spurs, San Antonio was trying to dribble out the clock but were whistled for a 24-second violation with 0.2 seconds left in the game. The only problem was, there were not enough Nets players on the court to inbound...

Brook Lopez underwent an extensive surgical procedure on his broken right foot Saturday in an effort to spare the Nets' center any further damage to the area that has hindered him for three years. A team of surgeons, including one of the doctors who finally ended Grant Hill's struggle with ankle woes, repaired the fractured fifth metatarsal in Lopez's foot and performed...
The sweat poured off Kevin Garnett’s bald head just minutes after the 37-year-old future Hall of Famer put himself through a rigorous shooting workout inside AT&T Center in San Antonio Wednesday afternoon.
It was inside that same arena Tuesday night where Garnett went 0-for-5 from the field, continuing his season-long shooting woes and leaving himself and the Nets as a whole...
It had been more than a decade since the Orlando Magic last had a player named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month.
That changed Friday when Victor Oladipo received the honor from the NBA after a December in which he averaged 12.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists.
Until Oladipo, the last Magic rookie to be singled out for his play in a particular month was Mike Miller in March...
The Brooklyn Nets ended 2013 on a low note, but their first game of 2014 went a little better after Joe Johnson buried a rainbow jumper to lift the Nets to a 95-93 win over the Thunder. Watch:
Brooklyn is still just 11-21 on the season, but the East is so weak that they
If there’s one thing we learned in last year’s playoffs — and a small sample size this season — never underestimate Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Scott Brooks attempting to lead a Russell Westbrook-less squad into battle. The woefully underachieving Brooklyn Nets would agree with that notion, as they somehow found themselves tied with Oklahoma City — on the road, no...
The Orlando Magic have waived forward-center Solomon Jones.
Orlando’s roster now stands at 13 players.
Jones, who suffered a torn meniscus early in the season, appeared in 11 games with the Magic, averaging 1.3 ppg. and 1.5 rpg. in 7.7 minpg. He was signed by the Magic as a free agent prior to training camp on Sep. 27.
Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson buried a game-winning buzzer-beater to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After blowing yet another large lead against the Brooklyn Nets, it appeared that Oklahoma City Thunder were heading overtime as they tied the score at 93 after Serge Ibaka lay-up.
However, there was still enough time for Brooklyn’s Joe Johnson to get his isolation on and hit the game-winning shot:

ORLANDO, Fla. -- This wasn't quite the throwback the Orlando Magic envisioned.
It didn't go as far back as the replicas of the black uniforms with white pinstripes from the franchise's formative years that they wore Saturday night against the Miami Heat. This nostalgia trip involved memories of when Rashard Lewis and a host of teammates would hover around the 3-point...
They say box scores don’t tell the whole story. Behind The Box Score is a new series where from time to time we will attempt to look behind the box score and tell more of the complete story of what happened in the game.

Glen Davis is the one who talks about it the most -- consistency and learning how to win when the young team steps on the floor. With the way the Eastern Conference is, there are no moral victories because the thought of making the Playoffs is so tangible.
Maybe that is not the absolute best thing for the Magic's long-term development considering teh...
