Check out this video of former Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy, AKA the Master of Panic, showing complete disdain for his overhyped, NBA-style introduction at the Orlando Magic's home opener. I like Erik Spoelstra, but you have to miss SVG and his utter disregard for celebrity, the fans, the media -- basically everything except his job. If this guy were secretary of the treasury, the United States would have a trillion-dollar surplus.
