08:05 AM ET 02.08 | Orlando may be the No. 6 seed in the east as of Wednesday morning, but some Magic fans still want Stan Van Gundy turfed. The Magic, for all the high drama involving the [Dwight Howard] soap opera, seem to know what they have in Van Gundy. In fact, as valuable as he is now, Van Gundy becomes even more valuable when the Magic go into rebuild mode following Dwight's departure. There are few coaches in the league who teach the game better than Van Gundy and squeeze the most out of limited talent. "I've been around the NBA for 25 years and would put Stan up against anybody when it comes to his basketball acumen and his ability from an X's and O's standpoint," Magic CEO Alex Martins says.

SVG falls in love with the three alittle bit too much at times, but he is a good coach. Look at what the GM has done to help him since their finals trip. If the magic let him go, SVG will have a job lined up almost instantly. Would the magic get a better coach than SVG? They should let Otis go and hire someone that will work with SVG to create a better team
