    His kids must be so sad that he won't have time for them anymore. Their lives will pass him by. field trips. music lessons. recitals and performances. basketball games. He soooooo sacrificed his coaching career to spend time with them. This new opportunity is such a burden.

    Darko meets his new coach

    DarkoM - "Hallo. I am Darko."

    SVG - "Hi Darko, I'm your new coach, Stan Van Gundy."

    DarkoM - "I just vant to play. Make smiling face."

    SVG - "That's great! I don't have time for my family now that I am coaching again. You can play with my kids because I will be starting Tony Battie."

    I love that Darko-speak. Almost like the old Darko M character.

    I think what SVG did was to spend an intense period of "quality time" with his family. This will hold them for another two years at least...

    There was an article recently written that said that Darko arrived at practice 1 hour before any other Magic player all year long. His dedication is off the charts. He said that he would give everything he has ever received for more minutes.

    I bet Van Gundy can work with that.

    Something tells me Stan will take a page out of the old Houston Rockets' playbook by going with twin towers a la Olajuwon and Sampson.

    Darko starts next year alongside Howard at the 5 and 4, respectively. Time for Darko to earn his bucks.

    Maybe after two years, Stan's family started to tune him out. I hear that happens to coaches.

    swapping 2008 picks might bite them in the behind.
