TNT, ESPN/ABC Still To Carry Many Knicks Games Despite Team's On-Court Woes
Published December 20, 2013
CONFLICT MANAGEMENT: On Long Island, Neil Best noted ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy discussed why he did not call the Dec. 11 Bulls-Knicks game amid rumors he is a potential replacement for Knicks coach Mike Woodson. Van Gundy on Thursday said, "That sort of got ramped up a little too much. I think it was maybe 10 to 12 days before ... I got switched off the game. I don't think there was any specific reason. I've had two or three games changed this year on my schedule. So I didn't give it much thought. But I was happy when I saw the game before or maybe it was two games before when my name was brought out." Van Gundy added of N.Y., "I've coached in that market ... so I know how painful that stuff can be for a coach going through the speculation" (NEWSDAY.com, 12/19).
