Even Marcin Gortat Thinks His Coach Panics Too Much

This can’t be good for Stan Van Gundy’s blood pressure: “Marcin Gortat, Orlando’s blossoming backup center, told a Polish newspaper this week that Van Gundy’s constant ranting and raving along the sidelines isn’t exactly productive for this team. Gortat even used the P-word, as in panic. Just know that’s an especially touchy subject around the Magic’s headquarters, especially after Shaquille O’Neal called Van Gundy ‘a master of panic’ and predicted that his team would come unglued in the playoffs because of the coach’s frenetic approach. Said Gortat, to sport.pl: ‘The nature of our coach, he panics very often during games. He’s got some behavior which is not good for us. With his gestures he makes us more nervous on the floor.’”

  • German Reignman

    gortat couldnt handle the pressure in the german league, no wonder that he gets nervous in the nba playoffs ….

  • Herfdawg

    this is just fuel for the fire…

    the fire that is going to cause the magic to go up in smoke.

  • Zabba

    Magic will go up in smoke like Cheech and Chong.

  • zyth

    i think this is fuel for the fire… the fire thats going to make Stan Van Gundy’s head expload!!!

  • German Reignman

    @ zyth:
    have you seen gortat play in the german league ? he was a slow, foul prone, badly tatooed, bald, average euro-big-men-without-anoutside-shot player … nobody believed it when the talk about him trying the nba started … thats not hate, thats bringing the facts

  • riggs

    Protection from what? Zee Germans?

  • Herfdawg

    these comments are pretty epic.

    Well from watching the BBL (Basketball Bundesliga) the last few years, i can confirm that Gortat was quite the scrub. A big man without an outside shot AND unimpressive athleticism is quite useless in Europe

  • Kas

    Hey, Marcin aint bad, he’s had some good games.
    Germans make me sick with their z’s, fat women in green tyrol skrits, goths, sick p0rn and euro-dance parties. Probably what got to marcin, too. any man would falter living under above-mentioned circumstances

    Why do these foreign dudes go home and say crazy stuff to the media? This happens way to much.

    i doubt he went home in the middle of the playoffs allen.

    he went home via zee indernet

    Kas: take it from someone who’s visited a few times, you WISH you had some of the hotties walking around Germany. Every Country has fatties, but there is such a hottie Mix in Munich for example, your eyeballs will explode.

  • chintao

    chintao is booking tickets for Munich to watch the Finals in a biergarten (or however y’all spell that). Anyway, it will be interesting to see if Marcin Borat gets anymore burn from the Master of Panic.

  • larrylegend

    we (germans) can take the hate…lol.
    your league sucks, your best player is hated on, your girls are fat, and the us of a is the best in everything…
    ok, no. 1 is true…

  • larrylegend

    munich is soooo snobby…don’t scratch the surface!

    @ chintoa: right spelling (but you’re there for the beer, admit it)

  • http://www.basketballjerseyworld.com nba-jersey-king

    Marcin plays alright as a back up but he is the next Jim McIllvaine – he will get a $40mill/5 year contract next year and do nothing…. over-rated and soon to be over-paid

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Chintao is sooo cool at times. Biergarten…. Indeed

  • money

    allen, because americans stay home and say crazy stuff to the media.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    i don’t know how well most of those guys speak english so, of course, they’re going to give more to the interviewers in their native tongues than the generic comments.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Kaa Meeee, Haaa Meeee, HAAAAAAA!!!!!! (that was for Hisham)

  • chintao

    Right back atcha’ Darksaber. @ larrylegend ==> I’d be there for the beer, but I don’t drink. I’ve always had much better success with the frauleins when they have their biergoggles on.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    money’s Gortat story = all kinds of laugh out loud funny. I gotta call find a clip, or call Ademola to ask if he knows who has one.
