09:17 AM ET 04.24 | Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said he's fine with the physical play between his team and the Hawks in their Eastern Conference playoff series. But Van Gundy said he's frustrated by what he calls the Hawks "flopping" in an attempt to draw fouls. "I like it when guys stand up and fight like men," Van Gundy said Saturday. "I think that is what the game is all about. The one thing that frustrates me is all the flopping."

Agreed. I don't think he is a great coach but I can just hear him and Jeff trading yucks as commentators for ABC.

Stan - look at the scoreboard. It says 2-1. The only team that's a flop in this series is the Magic, and a BIG reason for that is YOU!!!!!

Stan is not shooting jumpers. Howard is doing his job but the other guys are not.

the reason they are losing is because their offensive system is flawed. when a team refuses to double howard the magic have issues because they rely so much on the double to get wide open shots,without that the magic are average.

Stan is trying to find a way to deflect the Magic's lousy performance. Just shut up Ron Jeremy. I believe the magic got the best of the suspensions. Zaza is way more important then JRich... There's 2 upsets that I called and it looks like it's getting there. Everybody picked the Magic but I said that the Magic had a hard time w/ the Hawks and the Hawks will give the Magic fits in the playoffs. The other is the Spurs/Grizz and the Grizz are looking good. They could have been up 3-0...

i knew memphis would be a tough out......but i expected the spurs would get them on experience alone. this spur team we are seeing isnt the same type of team that won championships, those teams were all about defense....this team is more about offense

dude, we've ALL been tired of the flopping for the last 30 years....

This guy is the single, biggest whiner in the NBA, but he's accusing the Hawks not being men. It doesn't matter how poorly his team executes, he always has something to cry about. I'd call him a lil' girl, but he's not so lil. He does have a resemblance to Miss Piggy tho!

i agree..and for the magic...theyre system is bad there is no way arenas and richardson have all regressed that much that they barely give you starter quality play...that has to be the system...also if you noticed its the one system wher turkglu can excell and he is garbage everywhere else...to me that means the system..plus you never know if they are going to pound it inside or not...that should be a given since they have howard...

Magic are down 3-1 now. Say bye bye to Dwight Orlando. He is sure to leave now. I don't know whether the Cavs or the Magic would be worse off without their stars leaving. I'm leaning towards the Magic.

3-1 !!!!!!hahahahahahaha fork you Mr Stan. I guess this was another "flop" by the Hawks huh? How about the Magic throwing up bricks all 4 quarters? LMAO what an idiot of a coach!!!

Hawks not man enough?? its time to change your wet panties Stan. get him outta here already!!
