Stunned the JVG is standing up for Dwight actually. I know he wouldn't bash his brother, but this surprises me.

The 8 flagrants called for Blake and zero for Dwight is just crazy. Blake is too loved. Dwight is the hardest player to fairly officiate, but he isn't fairly officiated. SVG's comments were inappropriate, but he does have a point.

As much **** as Jeff has been talking on this defense, we've played pretty well.

And for one reason: Dwight. Again, no one player has more of an impact on a basketball game than that man.


And I think every fan thinks Jeff hates their team besides the Heat. He just tells it how it is, and usually it's not what people want to hear. I like that from him. He has no filter, and that's rare. He talks a lot of **** on us too...and I'm fine with it. He makes valid points. I can take criticism.

I'm sure he didn't simply say "MJ is a fraud" and then move on. I'm sure there was some context that you're omitting.

What was the quote? Link?

RZZZA
03-13-2011, 05:31 PM
A year later, when opponents seemed more interested in kissing Michael Jordan's four NBA championship rings than in beating him, a disgusted Van Gundy called Jordan "a con man." After scoring 51 on the Knicks the next time they met, Jordan walked past him and snapped, "Calm down, you little f—-."

just google "Jeff Van Gundy con man"

I still want to know what he said.

I loved MJ...but let's not act like he was a good person all the time. He's done some really bad things in his life, and he shouldn't be immune to criticism just because he's the clear GOAT (IMO).

the point is, Jeff is a huge hater and he's had a bug up his *** about the Bulls ever since the 90's, when MJ made him look like the fool that he is.

No. I think you just don't like hearing things you disagree with :shrug:

I found the conman quote...however, I don't think it's something that should make you ignore him for the rest of his life. He seems to respect the man tremendously, he just was continually kicked in the *** by MJ.

Some quotes from JVG on Michael...

"[He was a] ruthless competitor with exceptional basketball IQ, with an unmatched skill set and an ability to play his best when his best was needed."

"He kicked our butt every time it was all on the line, and then talked crap about us."

"Mentioning his name still turns my stomach, because some great Knick teams were denied winning championships because we could never scale Mt. Jordan."

Jordan once called Van Gundy a "little *****".

http://www.newsday.com/sports/basketball/knicks/the-knicks-fix-1.812055/jvg-jordan-s-name-still-turns-my-stomach-1.1438099

Just seems like a rivalry. Again, Van Gundy doesn't filter what he thinks. If you have soft skin, it can be annoying, but he says some really insightful things. We don't like hearing it a lot, because it's blunt and sometimes politcally incorrect, but he's smarter than most any other analyst there is.

He does rant too much.

RZZZA
03-13-2011, 05:39 PM
ok, lets just agree to disagree. I personally dislike the man and don't take him very seriously as an analyst.

Back to the game...well, this became quite a laugher in the 3rd. Magic dominated just as they should have with no Nash.

me too, but in a different way.

during the Heat/Celtics game, JVG is the guy who equated Rondo trying to peak into the Heat huddle with a trespasser invading your backyard, and said you should be able to "do what you want to them".

:eyebrow:

displaying a glaring lack of understanding about analogies, U.S. laws, AND basketball.

If these guys weren't announcing, this would be unwatchable. I'm still tuned in...probably wouldn't be if it was a different trio.

The only thing that annoyed me, even though I liked the support, was the 15 minutes of Dwight Howard getting fouled all the time talk. They beat that horse to a pulp.

RZZZA
03-13-2011, 05:54 PM
aww, thats so sweet. JVG showing us some love.

JVG's MVP list: Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, Lebron James.

I agree with that, except Dirk over Lebron.

I agree that Dirk has to be above LeBron now, but I do think LeBron will make a run again.

I also certainly don't think Rose should have it locked up though...

And JVG admits, again, that he was an idiot for saying they'd challenge the win record.

If Bulls end up with the #1 or #2 spot (Heavily overachieving, especially after major injuries) It's locked in for Rose, imo.

Yeah very true, they have to realize that every night you gotta bring it cause they've lost too many games where they should easily win. That being said some of that is on the coach too. I've been saying it for a while now, that they should just drop the idea of getting an elite pg for big money, they should focus on holes everywhere else.

All he'd have to do is give his players that face and they'll get scared shitless and run around all over the court on offense and defense.

lol. Awesome sig haha. The guy is a proven defensive coach. Offensively the Knicks will always put up points with Stat and Melo, but you can't let teams score 115+ on you with ease.

I say bring back Van Gundy, although I would miss him on ESPN and ABC:(

Yes... i mean records aside Pacers are actually a more complete team. Thats the arrogance of some Knicks fans... the Knicks are finally doing well after a decade of being pathetic and now their fans consider the Pacers average??? When in the east every team outside the top 4 arent ever that far off... i would actually argue that the Sixers are playing better ball and are a better more dangerous team than the Knicks. Defense wins!!! Its simple. Its not even your players. The Knicks have a nice team. However the system sucks
