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.

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.

After New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said last month that Michael Jordan "cons" younger players into a false sense of security, the league's best player scorched the Knicks for 51 points and gave Van Gundy an earful after several baskets.Van Gundy is not repeating the comments heading into Sunday's game against Chicago at Madison Square Garden, but he recently gave insight why he did what's almost unthinkable -- question Jordan's motives."I finally admitted to myself the other day: I am absolutely obsessed by [the Bulls]

Instead, they're struggling to stay at .500 (22-21) and enter today's game at Miami tied for the eighth and final playoff spot with Toronto and Charlotte.

NEW YORK -- If you listen to some of the New York Knicks, their most feared opponent at times is team doctor Norman Scott. A few players have questioned Scott's diagnoses during the past year, most recently Marcus Camby, who said Friday his injured right knee has "been misdiagnosed from the beginning." However, on Saturday coach Jeff Van Gundy defended the team physician. "To me, you don't get paid enough as a team doctor to take as much [garbage] as this guy has taken this year," Van Gundy said.

I've never even had a hole-in-one," said Smith."Craziest thing I ever saw," said Dick Metier, a Fort Dodge golfer standing with Van Gundy in the tee box on the seventh hole."There were some people in front of us kind of holding things up, which is why we were all standing there waiting to tee off on 7," Metier said.

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.

But on the night the team he built finally reached the NBA Finals, he was wrong about whose victory this really was. It was a win for Shaquille O'Neal - but Riley pulled the trigger on one of the great thefts of all time, from...

MIAMI - They will wonder about the "could-have-beens." They will ponder the "what-ifs." In the end, a season of incredible accomplishment and unprecedented joy will be haunted by heartache for the Miami Heat. Last night, Miami's season of dreams came to a premature end, the combination of Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade not enough to catapult the Heat past the Detroit Pistons and into the NBA Finals. In the final two minutes of the game, the Pistons outscored the Heat 12-4, turning a one-point deficit into an 88-82 victory, claiming the Eastern Conference finals, four games to three, and earning a return trip to the Finals, where they will defend their 2004 title against the San Antonio Spurs.

MIAMI - The Miami Heat had its fun early and took care of its business late. It added up to a 108-102 victory last night over the Washington Wizards and a 2-0 lead in this best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series. "There were a lot of things we didn't do well," Heat coach Stan Van Gundy said, "but we kept fighting." After building a 12-point first-quarter lead with a series of spectacular alley-oop dunks and a nasty reverse by forward Eddie Jones, the Heat, as it did in Game 1 of the series, gave the lead back.

HEY, HAVE you heard? NBA playoff games are fixed! Silly question. Of course you've heard it. David Stern has heard it for at least a decade. Worse, he knows that everyone else had heard it. It's spring, the talk-show hosts saw their shadows, and that means six more weeks of conspiracy theories. If you wonder why the commissioner went nuclear in response to what seemed like another round of playoff coaches' gamesmanship this week, that's why. Because he heard that tired refrain one too many times: "We can't get any calls because the NBA wants Team X or Player Y to win [or lose]

You'd hardly know it to watch him, but there was a time early this season when Miami Heat point guard Dwyane Wade had trouble moving his teammates around. Considering that's what point guards do, Wade had a bit of a problem and, in turn, so did the Heat, which stumbled to an 0-7 start. "At the beginning of the year, it was tough. I really didn't want to tell guys to do something," Wade said. "Now, you have to earn the respect of your teammates and I think I've done that, so I have no problem doing it now. Once you get the respect of your teammates, and they know the kind of player you are and person you are, and that you're not saying anything that would be wrong for them, they'll listen and I have done that."
