Stan Van Gundy: Leave Dwight Howard Alone!
Or something to that effect … the Orlando Sentinel captured SVG’s inimitable rage when it comes to Dwight’s perception in the media: “A question about Dwight Howard’s composure and ability to avoid frustration caused Magic coach Stan Van Gundy’s own personal frustration to emerge Wednesday morning after the Magic’s pregame shootaround. That Howard’s composure, or lack thereof, is an issue annoyed him. ‘There isn’t a guy in this league that doesn’t seem frustrated but when it’s Dwight everybody jumps on it. From the media at least, the national media, he gets a lot of criticism. A lot more than other guys who are no better than he is. I don’t understand it but he’s the whipping boy of the national media. I saw Tim Duncan come into our place and lose his composure. Nobody wrote that story.”‘
