@HowardBeckNYT: Stan Van Gundy just acknowledged that Dwight Howard has asked that he be fired.

@Ian_OConnor: Howard comes in hugs Stan and doesn't realize Stan just confirmed story

@Al_Iannazzone
Stan Van Gundy may not be coaching tonight's game after all this. Howard had no idea what SVG said. It was wild.

Atleast Carmelo went about it differently compared to Dwight. He let it happen on it's own.

That guy on Twitter was just making some sort of joke out of it. He is going to be here until the end of our season at least. Even Dwight said, "why would I want him fired when there are 12 games left."

I'm sure Dwight told management fire Stan before he made his decision to stay in Orlando. I think the biggest reason as to why he wants Stan fired is because he feels he doesn't get the ball in the 4th. He has come out many times and stated this himself. And sometimes, he is right, in the closing minutes he rarely gets the ball and has said he wants to be a closer. But he needs to look at the reality of it and realize that he can't hit freethrows for ****, so that takes him out of the running for being a closer.

You act as if it was a normal free agency. Never in my life have I seen a free agency hyped as much as his was. In any sport. Ever. And despite questions about it every night for two years, all we got out of him was, "I'm a Cavalier, and I won't be discussing free agency until that point in my life comes".

You're a New York fan - I can understand the disappointment you must have - but the whole "decision" uproar was so hilariously overblown (it was still stupid on his and his media teams part to do so, but it doesn't go beyond that).

And yes, this is about Dwight. This is about a guy whose reputation SHOULD take a significant hit after his actions for the last 6+ months. Horrible leader and lack of class is the understatement of the year.

Yeah totally. He has to realize that teams want him to have the ball in the clutch. He gets it, they just hack him. Take your chances with a 50% ft shooter, which Dwight is even as great of a player he is.

Must be hard for SVG though. I don't think he'll ever quit on his players, so he'll be around. Tough stretch for him though... I'm interested in seeing what he has to say after the season is over.

Still, gotta respect the guys cajones. That guy is 100% honest when he says he just doesn't care about being fired and only cares about winning.

As for Dwight... wow. Nice try at the PR dancing there.

I would have had a TON more respect if he just manned up and said something like...

"I respect SVG but I just don't think that we're the best fit to get the best out of the Team. I'll still support him 100% and play my heart out, but I made my feelings known to the management because I care about the future of this franchise."

Dwight feels disrespected that SVG does not go to him down the stretch of games because of his poor FT shooting. I actually don't blame Dwight for being upset about that. The only way he's going to get better is if he's put in those situations. You just can't go away from your franchise player.

I think SVG is a good HC but I honestly don't think he can win a championship. He couldn't do it with Wade and Shaq so how can he do it with Howard and a bunch of role players?

As long as SVG is the HC.....Dwight will be unhappy and not put forth is best effort.

SVG doesn't go to Dwight because he KNOWS that everyone is going to foul him in crunch time, which means Dwight at the line. Anyone with a brain will foul him. Do you REALLY want to put the outcome of a game on whether Dwight can sink a FT?

Sure, SVG could just give him the ball and say "here, practice your FT's and I'll forget that it's a 2 point game" ...

... or Dwight could hit the Gym and work on his 50% FT shooting, then SVG would have no excuses to NOT go to him.

Work on FT's in the gym? What a novel concept...

Wow is all i can say.. I lost all respect for dwight.. I didnt at first through the tradedeadline because i can understand why he would leave but to deny it , lie and be a d!ck right after it was confirmed is a whole new story.. This makes me feel bad about coaches because they honestly work hard as hell to just make it work and try hard as hell to get a group of grown ego filled men to listen and just win..

Stan van isnt no del negro.. Dwight has no clue about how bad this is going to make him in everyones eyes..But dwight really just put himself over melo & lebron.

And it"ll be harder for him to change the perception because truthfully his game style is not really exciting.. People would hate lebron or kobe but would pay whatever amount to go see him because of the possiblity of see'in a game winner a dunk a crossover etc and etc..its just more appealing.. A big man isnt the flash fans can love.. Just my opinion .. Only a title with this team and a extension with the magic can save dwights image

the magic front office needs a total replacement. how does this info get leaked out to the media? it's somewhat ok if they had fired stan then leaked it, but stan is still the coach. the playoffs are right around the corner and they just let all hell break loose in that locker room.

Lost all respect for dwight after that. How the **** can he lie right after his coach just confirmed that dwight wanted him gone. That's the reason why SVG left as soon as dwight arrived, he's sick and tired of dwight's BS.

I believe he wants him fired, just don't think he wants it right now with only 12 games left... He's never liked the way Stan runs the offense, he's been complaining about touches for years (remember the Celts series in 09).

I saw the video, Stan said he was told by MGMT that Dwight wants him fired but he doesn't care and will continue to try and win games; Dwight comes in and denies saying any of it, saying he's only thinking about the game tonight.

Dwight's probably lying, this was a bad time for all this to come out though (going into the playoffs).

people seem tp forget that stan ripped dwight a couple of yrs back. me personally as a magic fan in orlando who watches every game i hope stan is fired. Ive said it before stan is a good coach above average defensive coach but his offensive mindset is below average just go jack up 3s. i cant wait to see what someone else can do with the team because we all know stan was not gonna get us a title. and for the ppl saying dantoni why would we get the him he didnt even coach defense for the knicks and he has the same mentality as stan jack up 3s. everyone else can bit(h about it but im glad and hope stan gets let go ASAP i wouldnt mind patrick ewing finishing out the season but i know that wont happen

I agree. If he wants him fired, just wait until the season is over D12. You don't like him, fine, the FO and owners will pick you over SVG, no doubt. Just not right now...

Also, I blame management for telling SVG. What is the purpose of doing that?

To make Dwight look like the "bad guy", they know Dwight hates to be hated, so they've aired his **** out at every turn. His trade request was private, his decision to sign the waiver was private and his coaching change request was also private; the Magic aired it out to ensure they don't get blamed for anything... This makes us looks as bad as it makes Dwight look; things are really ugly right now for Magic fans.

Such a shame. Now Howard is going to be upset with the FO, we know he's upset with the coach, and now reports of some players being divided? This is really bad. Hope it works out for Magic fans, they don't deserve this nonsense.

I guess what I'm wondering though Raph is this... if they put it out there (Magic FO), it doesn't really benefit them in any way. D12 will just ask for a trade, his value declines in the process, and they might lose a good coach.

He's going to the highest bidder on draft night, hopefully a 82gm+playoffs rental brings in great dividends... I'm disgusted by some of the **** our MGMT has pulled over the years. The low-ball offer to Shaq, disrespecting TMac (which did get us Dwight though) and all of this Dwight bs.

I called it before the season began, just trade Dwight to the Lakers for Bynum and let everyone go on with their business... Think about how different things would be.

Yes but if Dwight was traded to LA before the season began, I think he'd be happier in his new surroundings. He was forced to stay in Orlando against his will (they declined to trade him) and forced to sign his waiver by getting threatened by a late-season trade to a lottery team.

If the Nets lose their pick (only Top 3 protected) and DWill, what can they give the Magic? And why would Dwight want to be there?

I think a lot of teams (that can offer more than the Nets) will take a risk on Dwight on draft night, knowing they have 82 games, the playoffs and more money to convince him to stay... Hopefully we get something to work with.

Actually, the only real losers in this situation are Dwight and the Fans.

The fans lose because they may now lose a very good coach, or their franchise player, or possibly both since Dwight is only signed through next year. They're also now stuck in drama, and may be looking at a total season collapse plus a mess next year depending on the new coach (if there is one).

Assuming Dwight was pushing SVG to be fired (given SVG's reputation for brutal honesty, I tend to lean towards SVG's accuracy), here's the possible scenarios...

SVG is fired. He leaves with his pride intact, and everyone knowing why (Dwight), putting him in a position to get another job instead of suffering through another 1.5 years or getting fired in the offseason (presumably after a dismal post-season) and looking like he's just making excuses.

SVG stays. If the team tanks, then alot of the blame falls on Dwight for not being able to co-exist with his coach. If the team wins, SVG looks like even more of a genius.

Dwight is traded. Magic gets some flak from the fans, but not nearly as much now since some fans will view Dwight as uncooperative. There will also be a significant portion of the fan base that will dislike him not only for pushing for SVG to be fired, but the weak way he tried to cover his butt in front of the media (that and the arm around SVG... anyone else feel like they needed a shower when they saw that?).

Dwight stays. If SVG is gone and they do poorly, Dwight gets most of the blame. If SVG stays and they do poorly, Dwight gets most of the blame. If SVG stays and they do well next year, SVG gets most of the credit.

The only scenario where Dwight can win is if he stays, SVG leaves, and they suddenly tear it up the rest of the season and next year (put up or shut up).

Regardless of what the management does at this point, they can spin it as either trying to keep Dwight happy, or taking a principled stand behind SVG if they don't fire him, or looking towards the interests of the team since he's only got 1 year on the contract if they trade him. Win/win/win.

In the end, I would expect Dwight's endorsements to take a hit for some time after this...

How awkward was it when Howard came up and put his arm around SVG in that video??? Hahahahahaha you could totally tell it was true, just from the look on SVGs face.

Howard is a liar. How could you lie to the entire world on that video and vehemently deny these allegations when 30 seconds before SVG said he heard it was true from management.

Now the only explanation I have is that management is making this stuff up to SVG and if anyone would like to provide me with a good reason on why they would do that let me know lol

People love to call out Dwight and it's fully understandable, but what about the owner? What was he thinking? He should have honored Howard's original desires to be traded. If he wasn't happy or was unwilling to sign long term they should have shipped him out of town. They ignored all the glaring signs that this would get ugly and now they are here. I don't blame the players for holding the franchise hostage I blame the people in control that let it happen.

This is a good point. Everyone has to share some of the blame for why things are such a mess in Orlando. Otis gets alot of crap from fans because of the moves he makes but when he has an 86 yr old owner telling him that if it comes down to trading Dwight, that he still wants to be competitive vs rebuilding, which gets you what? Players that will keep you a 5th seed for the next 5-6 years? As a Magic fan, if you trade Dwight you almost have to rebuild, unless you just get some crazy offer, which most likely won't happen because you never get = value when you trade a superstar.

Personally I like Stan, he doesn't give you fake/politician like answeres, he's straight up and chooses his words carefully. At this point I think Dwight is becoming a joke. He has to realize this is the highest league in basketball. He's a professional now. Who cares if he likes his coach or not. SVG has something like a 750 winning percentage. He produces, in a business that is the most important thing. Someone can "like" a coach all they want but if they don't win then they'll get fired the next day. Stan is a great coach and I think we are lucky to have gotten him over Donovan who decided to go back to Florida after signing a contract to coach our team.

Dwight simply has alot of growing up to do. He thinks he's bigger then what he is. If I were the organization I would side with Stan because he has a track record of winning and not giving up on his teammates, something Dwight flips on. I think we all know Dwight "most likely" will be gone, I don't want to see our ownership fire everyone who does there job right just to appease an immature superstar. Noone will ever be bigger then the organization

I will say this about Stan. Good! He's sticking up for himself and is sick of the circus act. He got dicked over in Miami, and this time he'll go down being honest. He knows that within hours of his firing he'll probably have a job, and a job that will pay him more...so there's nothing to lose by being honest. I don't know what is gained from this, but I don't care. **** Dwight.
