Orlando Magic: Stan Van Gundy is already tinkering with lineups with the postseason and mind, and one player, Mickael Pietrus, isn’t happy. “Frustrated with his dwindling role, Pietrus was pulled out of the game by Van Gundy after just three minutes into the final period during the Magic’s blow-out victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves … Teammates, including co-captain Dwight Howard, tried to calm Pietrus. One player said that MP wanted to be traded if he’s not playing regularly, although MP told me he didn’t want to leave a contender.” Worse yet, SVG benched Pietrus Monday night against Atlanta. Can’t wait for this to bubble over Tuesday. [Sentinel]
How’d he do that?
The cartoon character and tactical mastermind of Merseyside dreams.
The Return of the Craptors.
Not going away.
There’s no “eureka” moment where those late game synapses start firing.
