I'm not worried about Otis....the Knicks will probably hire him.

For some reason I thought Otis Smith's job was safe and only Vangundy was a goner

Hedo Turkolu and Gilbert Arenas.

If anything, Van Gundy got screwed by the trades the GM made (unless he had a hand in them).

Best center of his generation and they can't put anything at all around him.

You mean Areanas, Turkolu has been there since 2007 and been one of their best players on the floor. I remember him hitting a winning three pointer in 2007 to knock the sixers out the playoffs.

I disagree. Van Gundy's system (Inside Out) made Dwight Unhappy, as he was not getting enough touches. I don't blame Van Gundy because he did his job. Top 5 Defensive team every year, made playoffs, finals, etc. The system just doesn't work anymore. He's a damn good coach though.
