Keyshawn Johnson can't comprehend why Jeff Van Gundy would leave the broadcasting booth and return to coaching following reports of JVG's impending meeting with the Houston Rockets.

  • I like Keyshawn’s take on things, always on the practical, common sense side.

    • @Jim Morrison you said Houston . That includes everyone . You don’t speak for me and last I checked the only person that speaks for a group is an elected official . I don’t recall there being a Jim Morrison elected to the mayor or Governor’s office . Like I said just speak for yourself and everything is cool . Everyone is entitled to their opinion just don’t try to lump everyone into your way of thinking .

  • Keyshawn’s commentary makes no point. Trying to replace “his opinion to what he thinks is convenient for him” instead of commenting on the pros and cons per se of JVG going to Houston. It’s like one asking if blue or red is better and he answers “in my opinion, it is green”. So off tangent. Plus he annoying af when he interrupts jwill. Get this man off the tv!

  • I'm torn because I'd love to see Marc Jackson get another coaching gig, and Van Gundy is always good too... but those two guys are also great together commenting on the games, probably my favorite duo right now... I know Marc wasn't part of the topic here, somehow Marc hasn't been the topic for a while, which is why I bring him up... I hope he doesn't want to get back into coaching, because the alternative is that nobody is calling him, and that's a mistake.

    HDMe2HDMe213 ditë më parë
  • I mean there's gotta be a certain reason why Jeff hasn't been a coach since 06-07. All those coaching changes throughout the years, and his name hasn't been mentioned at all as a potential coach? Maybe it's because he didn't want to coach, but it took him 13 years to say "I want to coach now"?

All of these coaches styles and philosophies conflict with the players on the team. Could you imagine Jeff trying to make Harding focus on displined team defense?

It actually benefits the entire league in terms of rules changes because Jeff mentions these things during games. Without Jeff the league may not have made the changes it had and it would be worse off. And the man is hilarious.

    • @Haiti baybSteph Curry is by far a worse overall defender. But Curry catches less heat than Harden because he makes the effort to play team defense consistently. That is where JVG would drive Harden and Westbrook most.

      beenjammin713beenjammin71310 ditë më parë
    • @Korkma Sönmez there are different ways to confront, and players respond differently to different kinds of authority. For example, Latrell Sprewell choked out PJ Carlesimo. That's far worse than what Harden's track record is when confronted by coaches. You would've said "look at his track record." You would've said "acting tough on guys like him won't work." But then he listened much better to Van Gundy, who is also known for being authoritative and confrontational. The point is that not every confrontational and authoritative figure is the same. People thought Jimmy Butler wasn't responding well to an authoritative figure like Thibodeau, but he responded just fine to the authority and standards of accountability of Pat Riley and Spo. So like I said, you don't know what will work best for him.

      I'm backI'm back12 ditë më parë
    • @I'm back Just look at harden's track record when being confronted by his coaches. It's a players league now, whether we like that or not (I don't). If Harden wants a coach gone he's out so acting tough on guys like him won't work anymore.

      Korkma SönmezKorkma Sönmez12 ditë më parë
    • @Korkma Sönmez It's JVG who's up for the position btw, not SVG. (Edit: Actually looks like they're both up for the position.) You don't know if Harden is at his best when coached with so much freedom. He gets the most stats that way, that doesn't mean that's what works best for him to have the best chance to win. Playing in a way that puts him and his team to have the best chance to win is really what "playing your best" means. Perhaps authority and being held accountable is what he needs. For Westbrook, to your point, JVG would be great for him.

      I'm backI'm back12 ditë më parë
    • @I'm back To get back to SVG though, I don't think he'll be able to handle the drama with Westbrook and Harden in the same locker room while Morey is trying to pressure him to play his favored style of basketball. Harden is at his best when coached with alot of freedom on offense (D'Antoni) and a non-confrontational approach while Westbrook needs a hands on guy holding him accountable for his mistakes. D'Antoni couldn't stop him from chucking up inefficient trees which cost them alot against the Lakers.
