Stan Van Gundy Rumors

Apparently, Stan Van Gundy has been studying up on Urban Dictionary in the days since. Tuesday, he broke out a “bussin’” on an unsuspecting NBA audience. And he’s done it again on Thursday night during TNT’s broadcast of the game between the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns. When marveling at a replay of a nice pass and score by the Mavericks, Van Gundy noted “that pass was bussin’”
“I didn’t know you were going for that tonight. That came out of nowhere. Next thing you know you’re gonna be spittin’ on something,” said play-by-play partner Brian Anderson, who was more prescient than he could have known. Indeed, sometime later, when Anderson was shouting out Van Gundy for his ability to correctly call replay results, Van Gundy took the bait and said “that may seem arrogant, but when you’re spittin’ you’re spittin’”
According to Stan Van Gundy on TNT’s broadcast of Tuesday’s game between the Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder, Spoelstra believes the team just needs to get healthy. “We talked to Spo before the game about whether or not the Heat needed to add somebody, add another piece,” Van Gundy said. “And he really doesn’t think so — they just need to get whole.”
The Timberwolves veteran — who played for the Los Angeles Clippers for four seasons before heading to Minnesota — insisted to JJ Redick on ESPN that the Lakers’ 2020 title deserves an asterisk and that it’s a “Bubble Championship.” Here’s Beverley making his case. Kevin Harlan will sit in a chair courtside Wednesday night that, he feels, does not belong to him. It’s the same way he felt at the All-Star Game in February.  “I may be broadcasting this game tonight,” Harlan texted Marv Albert that night. “But this will always be your seat. This will always be your chair.”  Harlan is Turner Sports’ replacement for Albert as the play-by-play voice of the conference finals. He’ll be joined by Hall of Fame player Reggie Miller and ex-coach Stan Van Gundy as the Dallas Mavericks face the Golden State Warriors in the opening game of the Western Conference finals.
