Either Stan Van Gundy Has Hired A Stunt Double, Or He Is Remarkably Athletic For Such A Round Man

  • Dan Fogarty

Earlier today, Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy displayed some incomprehensible ball-handling skills for a man that looks like he should be outside of a circus tent, shouting about the mysterious spectacles that await you within.

This video, taken during the Magic’s annual youth camp, is definitely him. The facial hair and body type are unmistakable matches. But you will watch this and feel like you are being bamboozled by CGI. Hoodwinked by a stand-in, even. Because if there are no parlor tricks being played here, and this is indeed the spherical, mustachioed coach of the Orlando Magic, we’re pretty sure he would absolutely own us in a pickup game. Consider our world rocked.
