Jeff Van Gundy Rumors
What’s amusing about Van Gundy’s chastising of the media is as a head coach, he would often share his thoughts about things in an off-the-record setting, so it is curious to see him blasting a process he himself has been part of. There are a large number of people who talk on what is called “background,” that’s non-sourceable material to help the writer understand the dynamics of something they are writing about.
Frank Isola: Jeff Van Gundy on Kristaps Porzingis: “…he has given the New York Knick fan reason to fall back in love with their team … you can fall back in love now because this guy, along with Carmelo Anthony, gives you a chance to be competitive every night.”
Assistant coach J.B. Bickerstaff has been named interim head coach, and potential candidates to replace McHale, according to Wojnarowski, include Tom Thibodeau, Charlotte’s Steve Clifford and Jeff Van Gundy, Stan’s brother. “Well, he lives right there and he’s been with them,” Stan Van Gundy said. “They liked him for a while and then they didn’t like him. It’s the same ownership. I don’t know if they like him again or what. Obviously, he’d be great, but I don’t have any idea where that stands.”
