Yesterday during the Knicks/Heat game, a rather routine play in today's NBA game set Jeff Van Gundy off on a tirade Ian Eagle would be proud to hear. James Jones of the Heat flopped to earn an offensive foul on the Knicks' Iman Shumpert, a play that happens seemingly a dozen times a game. However, it must have been one too many times for Van Gundy, who erupted on flopping ruining his beautiful game.
That was great, a reminder why Van Gundy is one of the best in the business. Clearly, his only agenda is his own, and he isn't afraid to thumb his nose at the league office. His best line was going directly at David Stern's salary to call him out on his inaction over flopping, although that will probably cost him a $500,000 fine. Seriously though, both JVG and Mike Breen are correct. There has to be something done to cure the flopping that has taken over the NBA, retroactive punishments being one solution. However, it certainly isn't a problem that can be solved overnight. Just look at soccer.
@awfulannouncing Texas' grey uniforms are awful! Their whites are some of the best in the country, why switch it up?
Morgan is a colossal prick. He's trying to reinvent himself here in the States as no one in England can stand him. He's a not too bright bully with poor judgement (achtung surrender! ). He's not ignorant of the game but will always resort to generalised tabloid grandstanding (witness his $30 M dollar game rant after the Arsenal V ManUtd game. Either way, I don't care for Arsenal and am enjoying his discomfort. Even if he is using his unhappiness as a lame ongoing publicity vehicle. Can't ICE hit him with a rubber club and stick him in a freighter full of dildos back to the old world?
Piers has every right to be upset but it doesn't surprise me that Arsenal's players can't stand him. He has a huge bully pulpit and he has used it to trash them. I'm glad one of them finally stood up and said it.
@iPrinceJester piers morgan is retarded and doesn't deserve to be on fox soccer analyzing soccer
@ChigerWoods try to find the other twitter-war recaps on that site, it's pretty funny.
