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.

Orlando needs change K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Define regret. If they think the moves alone will appease Dwight Howard enough for him to sign a long-term extension, Orlando management might regret the moves. Because you never know what that Howard guy is thinking. If you made the moves to get new voices and leadership, then fine. Look, Van Gundy is a very good coach. But it's not like other good coaches aren't out there. And it's also not like Van Gundy doesn't wear on players after a while.

Good morning --Kyle Boller -- Christmas came early last week, but maybe Santa will drop by the stadium again tonight on his way back to the North Pole. THEY SAID IT "Pat Riley was 3-0 before losing in Cleveland. We hear the loss hit him so hard he had to be talked out of resigning to spend more time with Stan Van Gundy's family." Greg Cote Miami Herald columnist "The good news is that, on the 2006 calendar, the two girls will only take up one page." Scott Ostler San Francisco Chronicle columnist, on the two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders who made headlines this year inside a restroom stall "Experts say the Superdome will be game worthy by next November, but what about the Saints?"

Magic will make change Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Of course Stan Van Gundy won't keep his job with the Magic, and he's coaching them in name only now, simply collecting checks until someone, perhaps his "source" in the front office, puts him out of his misery by issuing him his sought-after golden pink slip. The Magic will do what seemingly every team in sports does, go from a hard-driving coach to an easygoing type in a bid to change the culture and appease the restless.

It's all about the triangle. Surely that's true in Los Angeles, where Phil Jackson returns when the NBA opens training camps on Oct. 3. But it's more than Jackson's trinity offense that will be a supreme theme in the league this season. It's perhaps the return to the sidelines again for three of the most dominant figures in NBA coaching, Jackson, Larry Brown and Pat Riley. Jackson, in his unique resurrection, appears on the Lakers' sidelines again while Brown resurfaces in New York as coach of the Knicks.

Let me introduce to you, the band you've known for all these years ... The Magic? No. 3 in glamour in the Eastern Conference, the new land of titans, it remains to be seen where the Magic will finish in the standings — or, more important, the conference draw. Nevertheless, the Magic start with several advantages: They're younger than the Celtics (but who isn't?). They will have fewer distractions than the Heat (but who won't?). They have Dwight Howard.

Riley will stick with pal K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Pat Riley has developed a well-earned reputation as a win-at-all-costs competitor, sort of the Michael Jordan of the boardroom. Nevertheless, I still say Erik Spoelstra finishes the season as Heat coach. For starters, Spoelstra didn't get dumber during the offseason, and he's already considered one of the brighter young minds in the NBA. Secondly, Riley got his competitive jones last summer, when he scored the remarkable coup of landing LeBron James and Chris Bosh and re-signing Dwyane Wade.

It's too early to say Brian Schmitz Orlando Sentinel It's a weird year at the MVP ballot box. There are Super Teams, whose stars tend to split votes. (See the Spurs, Celtics and Heat). There are old favorites (Kobe and Dirk). There's the current league darling (Derrick Rose), who followed the last league darling (Kevin Durant). And there's always the one guy whose supporting cast hasn't lent enough balloons and bunting to his candidacy (Dwight Howard)

Shaw is Bryant's guy K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune Assuming Phil Jackson doesn't get bored looking at Montana's big sky and pull a reversal nobody expects, Brian Shaw will be the next Lakers coach. Bigger names are out there, but none has the endorsement of Kobe Bryant, and why would management want to alienate its best player? It's not like Shaw is a novice either. He has interviewed for other head coaching openings. He knows how to run the triangle offense, even if Ron Artest doesn't.

Stay the course Ira Winderman Sun Sentinel Stay healthy. Otherwise, not a darned thing. This team has been close enough often enough in the last three years that to veer too far off course now would do nothing but set back the program. The Magic already have shown they can knock off the Heat and certainly compete with the Celtics. Dwight Howard is as imposing as it gets in the East, and few backup centers can offer what Marcin Gortat offers. They have a defensive stopper (Mickael Pietrus)

Life goes on, apparently. If revenge is a dish best served cold, the just dessert — jiggling Jello? — that the Los Angeles Lakers set before the Boston Celtics on June 17 was chilled to perfection. Of course, it should have been, after six decades in the refrigerator. Remember Game 6 in 2008, when the Celtics sent the Lakers home as crispy critters in a 131-92 rout that recalled the horrors of the rivalry from 1959 to 1984, when the Lakers went 0-8 in NBA Finals meetings, featuring Frank Selvy's miss, Jack Kent Cooke's balloons, James Worthy's interception, Magic Johnson's dribbling out the clock, the Sauna Game, the 3 a.m. fire alarm, fans rocking their bus. This Celtics' loss was worse.
