Stan Van Gundy no fan of holiday games

December 26, 2009

Stan Van Gundy has a request for the NBA: no more Christmas games.

"I actually feel sorry for people who have nothing to do on Christmas Day other than watch an NBA game," the Magic coach said.

The Magic lost 86-77 to the Celtics on Friday, one of five NBA games on Christmas.

Van Gundy said he understands the high-priced TV contracts generate money for the league and it would be difficult to stop such games.

He said at the very least he wishes the league had fewer games on the holidays.

The Magic play games on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day this season.
