Now the Kings sit at the end of the string of the broken-hearted. Stan Van Gundy wasn't a savior, he wasn't even a consensus top choice. But he was a legitimate head coach, a great and safe coach to help rebuild the product. He wouldn't have been perfect, but he's probably closer than any of the assorted assistants.
From Ailene Voisin's column, it seems Kings management knew it was a longshot. I guess I just wish we knew that, too. We wouldn't be so frazzled this morning otherwise.
Now can Terry Porter get an interview?
