Stan Van Gundy: ‘I Really Don’t Give a Damn About Getting Fired’

With the NBA Trade Deadline less than 48 hours away, things are getting even crazier in Orlando. Earlier today, the front-office released a statement shooting down a report that Dwight Howard had been given almost complete control of the franchise’s moves (seriously), and Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy was completely unhinged when talking to the press corps prior to tonight’s Heat/Magic game. He’s the best. From Hoopsworld and the Palm Beach Post: “I really don’t give a damn about getting fired … If they want to fire me to please somebody, fire me. Wade, James and Bosh scare me a lot more than some rumor about me getting fired. [...] ‘Nobody cares if we play well or don’t play well. It’s all, ‘Is Dwight gonna stay?’ [...] SVG on rumors: ‘That’s a great profession. You never have to be right. And you still get to keep your job.’”

    Don’t blame em. Seeing how when D-How leaves their won’t be anything but a bunch of clowns and baffons on the Magic roster he may well brace himslef.

    It’s getting more and more depressing to be a Magic fan…if anything, keep Stan and don’t let Dwight control anything outside of his game. He wanted Glen Davis, how has that worked out?

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Why would he give a damn about something out of his control? This is beyond stupid to even ask him.

    ‘That’s a great profession. You never have to be right. And you still get to keep your job.’ Lol so true.

    Can we start calling SVG honey badger? That’d be the best nickname ever. “Stan was fired? Honey badger don’t care.”

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Dwight was traded? Honey badger don’t care.
    The team took 40 3′s tonight? Honey badger don’t care.
    Glen Davis cracked the floorboards? Honey badger don’t care.

    I hope Dwight gets traded to Miami in some kinda deal involving Bosh. Then the holy trinity of NBA-hipster-glasses wearers can be united in LeBron, Dwight, and Dwyane. I also hope that their team jet crashes into the Charlotte Bobcats stadium – thus cleansing the NBA.

    ^^^ With your whole family in the team jet. The ignorance and imbecility of some mofos, all because of a player’s decision about his future. smh

  • LA Huey

    Wishing death on someone because of something frivolous? You stay classy, CoolWhip.

  •  JRok

    Yo I was born and raised a Heat fan, but CoolWhip’s comment had me ballin’ my eyes out. Y’all need to chill.

  • alphabeta

  • dan

    please magic, fire that guy. we need him as the knicks headcoach. the magic can get dantoni :D

  • ab40

    Stan and Jeff at the same booth at an espn game haha that would be crazy.

  • vtrobot

    Lighten up on CoolWhip. It’s called a joke. I doubt that he actually wants all CHA players to die. Also, “wishing death” on someone isn’t quite as bad as actually killing someone, since nothing actually happens when you wish or hope for something. Everything is still OK. Peace.

    Of course SVG cares, he’s just putting on a brave face for the media. You can tell he’s pissed off, probably at Dwight, who he’s done nothing but stick up for and lobby for his whole time in Orlando, just to have Dwight want to bail on the franchise. If SVG truly believes that Orlando gave Dwight the power to choose his fate and he actually does get fired, he’s gonna be livid.

  • Alex______

    Understandable, if he a coach, then he gatta worry bout his line up, plays n all. But when the so called “ALL STAR”(DWIGHT HOWARD) is with his boo boo Shiet just like lebron, hes gna dissapoint every magic fans as well as how lebronk did with cleveland, BE A MAN, GROW SUM BALLS N SIGN WITH WHO GNA SIGN!
