SVG says he’d have been an honest on air

What kind of broadcaster would a man be if he did not have an edit button? Probably a pretty interesting one.
NBA fans were waiting for the comic stylings of Stan Van Gundy before a deal with ESPN seemingly blew up with Van Gundy saying the network was “as is usual” full of “BS.”
But Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops did ask the former Orlando coach what he would have provided his audience. And as usual, Van Gundy let rip.
“…I wasn’t maybe David Stern’s favorite coach in the league. David likes to control everybody and I would say some things he didn’t like. I’m not looking to be outrageous or say things. I get asked questions, and unfortunately, sometimes, I’ll just say the first thing that pops into my head without really editing myself, and that’s gotten me into trouble at times.
“…I’m not going to be out there killing people because, number one, I have great respect for NBA players and NBA coaches and I think that will come through. I don’t care how good a team is or a player is or anything else. There’s times when things are being done well and I think I’ll have the honesty to come out and point that out. “I’ll certainly try to have fun. If you’re not going to be coaching, which is absolute misery, if I’m going to be involved in games where I get to watch, the I’m going to make sure that I enjoy it and have fun, and hopefully that will come through too.”
