Who knows who will coach the Kings next? No one. So to record in permanent form the lasting effects of this bizarre coaching search would be premature.
But at least one league insider I've been talking to thinks this is good for the Kings. He says Stan Van Gundy is a 'grinder' -- a coach who runs his players very ragged. That works on young, impressionable guys. Not the case with veterans. And in case you haven't noticed, this team is pretty damn full of veterans.
The insider thinks Kurt Rambis is a better fit for this roster, though Van Gundy might be the better coach. Rambis is described as someone who can relate to players, but also is a disciplined guy.
Like I said, we won't know how this all shakes out until, well, it shakes out.
