Kevin Garnett Runs Into Stan Van Gundy
Looking at Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, you figure the guy probably had a background as a football player, specifically a lineman. I don’t know if Stan ever played football but I do know that he has enough size to body up Kevin Garnett — we actually have proof. In the third quarter of Orlando’s Game 3 debacle against the Celtics, Matt Barnes elbowed Kevin Garnett in what seemed to be an intentional foul. The result was this video of Kevin Garnett running into Stan Van Gundy who cushioned KG’s fall:
I don’t know if you caught it too, but it seemed to me like SVG tried to give KG a little forearm shiver. He slipped it in subtly so it’s hard to tell, but I think it was definitely there. The sad thing is that was the most uncomfortable the Magic were able to make the Celtics the entire game.
