7. Stan Van Gundy, Orlando Magic (3): Circumstances were beyond difficult, but I thought Stan took a step back last season. His roster was gutted at midseason, to be fair, and nothing is more difficult for a coach than to have to adjust to so many new faces at once like that. But a lot of the offensive creativity departed in favor of straight post-ups for Dwight Howard, and I think that hurt Orlando at times. He was also very much outcoached by Larry Drew in the playoffs, which is troubling. Still, I'd take him over almost anyone
