Players vote Stan Van Gundy the NBA's most annoying in-game coach.

"NBA players find Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy to be the league’s most annoying coach during games, according to a poll conducted by Sports Illustrated. And the results aren’t even close.

Of the 138 players surveyed, 65 percent said Van Gundy was the most annoying. Van Gundy was followed by the Lakers’ Phil Jackson and Bucks’ Scott Skiles (7 percent each), the Nets’ Avery Johnson (4 percent) and the Spurs’ Gregg Popovich (3 percent).

Van Gundy has earned seven technical fouls this season, which ties him for third-most among NBA coaches. The leader in that category -- Detroit's John Kuester -- did not receive a single vote.

The Magic coach is known for his animated ways on the bench. His star center Dwight Howard does a particularly impressive impression of the coach, which you can watch here.

Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post points out that Van Gundy's voting percentage in the poll -- 65 percent -- is nearly identical to his career winning percentage of .649."

i find doc rivers to be the most annoying...always making excuses for his team and his team never fouls even when the absolutely clobber someone but his team is fouled everytime down the court. I kind of find van gundy to be entertaining.

Kinda surprised to see people saying Doc is annoying. I've always liked him, personally. SVG is easily the choice. If his brother was still coaching they'd be tied...it'd be close at least. Spo and VDN are pretty annoying too. I remember last year with the Bulls, or maybe two years ago he was screaming at an opposing player taking a three pointer. Probably the best he's ever coached too :laugh2:

I always thought Jerry Sloan was pretty annoying. Pop as well, only because he complains so much.

It's mentioned before that other coaches/players don't understand how he sits most of the game or is unanimated. Before people mention his health; you have to go back and look at the tape he has been doing this most of his career. One side will say he is cool, level headed and the other extreme is that people may interpret that as not caring as much. Whether you agree or not many people view his style as unconventional.

I've always called SVG Wario because I find Wario to be really annoying. He also somewhat looks like him too.
