Why Would Howard Want Van Gundy Gone?

I'm not all that familiar with hoopsworld.com, so I don't know how much readers should be taking this at face value. If it's true (and I'm inclined to buy parts of it, because they make sense), it offers a lot of insight into the real story behind the SVG-Dwight rift. Here's an excerpt: To say the Magic groveled is an understatement. They begged. They pleaded and they promised. When asked directly about what needed to change, coaching, namely the manner in which the team was coached, was openly discussed. The idea of replacing Stan Van Gundy was broached before training camp. The Magic made it clear that changing coaches just days before camp wasn’t reasonable and that maybe talking things out with Stan might lead to a better situation. There was an hour-long meeting in which Stan was asked to be more flexible. He was asked to allow the leaders of the team in Howard and Jameer Nelson to police the team on the floor and for Stan to lighten up. And for the most part Stan Van Gundy tried, but at the end of the day, you are who you are.
