Stan Van Gundy Blames Orlando's Front Office


Although Dwight Howard was finally traded Friday and Stan Van Gundy was canned almost three months ago,the drama continues to unfold.

According to Ian Fitzsimmons of ESPN Radio in Dallas, Van Gundy isn’t blaming Dwight Howard for what happened in Orlando.

Fitzsimmons said Van Gundy told him “he blames the front office not Dwight Howard for what happened w/ Magic & he believes DH is a perfect fit in LA.”

We all know Howard is not free of blame in this situation and has made several bad decisions, but part of what he’s alluded to has been true. He wasn’t promised a few different things by the organization (a trade for a legitimate #2 among other things) that they didn’t deliver for whatever reason.
