Insider: Howard & Van Gundy Postgame

For the second time in just over a week, we saw the New York Knicks take the Orlando Magic to the woodshed, this time coming away with a 96-80 victory.

However, that wasn’t the story Thursday night. Instead, the night centered around Magic Head Coach Stan Van Gundy’s admission that he knows (and has known for quite some time) that Dwight Howard has asked management to fire him.

Below, you can see postgame video of both Van Gundy and Howard. Van Gundy, as always, was very candid in his presser while Howard refused to answer questions regarding Van Gundy.
