I didn't even know Jeff Van Gundy was still actively coaching. I would pay just to see him coach that group of NBA washouts.

  • Sometimes there's no sane reason for optimism.
Is Tyler Zeller the best player on that team?

Guess it goes to show just how talented US players are - we aren't even putting NBA players on the roster.
