Derrick Rose Beef with Coach Hornacek? Top 10 Coach-Player Beef in NBA History
Dwight Howard vs. Stan Van Gundy
Orlando Magic 2012
Dwight Howard is not a very good liar, nor is Stan Van Gundy. This made their incompatibility painfully obvious to everyone who watched the Magic play, and it became readily apparent as the feud simmered on that one of them had to go. Things came to a head in April of 2012 when Howard marched into management’s office and informed them that he wanted Van Gundy fired. He then denied it, even though Van Gundy himself was the one confirming the reports. The pair’s bizarre press conference interaction remains one of the most awkward videos ever to hit YouTube. Howard did ultimately get his wish when Van Gundy was fired in May of 2012, but it didn’t do anything to persuade him to stick around as he also forced his way out of town just three months later.
