The Van Gundy brothers of the basketball world are two men basketball fans owe a huge debt of gratitude. Between Stan’s incredulousness on the sideline when a call goes the other way, or Jeff’s hysterical commentary, these two guys bring a lot to the subtleties of what makes the NBA worth watching. I once heard somebody say that JVG is pound for pound the best commentator in sports. One could also make the argument that his brother SVG is pound for pound the most mediocre coach in the NBA.
I first became a JVG fan when he coached the Knicks in the 1990’s. He helped lead the Knicks to the 1994 finals as an assistant to Pat Riley and once more in 1999 as head coach. Stan Van Gundy looks like adult film star, Ron Jeremy. Vote below for your favorite Van Gundy.
