Stan Van Gundy recently was named the head coach and president of basketball operations for the Detroit Pistons. Before taking on this role, Van Gundy was a longtime coach of the Orlando Magic, where he was known to create strong relationships with his players. For example, from SLAM’s profile of ex-Orlando Magic point guard and streetball legend, Rafer Alston:

“My brother and I spoke about Rafer positively all the time. My brother even named his dog after him! Skip.” – Jeff Van Gundy

Hopefully, Hollywood will get to work soon on the remake of My Dog Skip starring Rafer Alston and Stan Van Gundy.
