WATCH: Jeff Van Gundy Tackles Biggest Issue In Sports Today
Jeff Van Gundy, analyst for the NBA on ESPN, found a lot of disagreement when he declared that the Boston Celtics would hand the Golden State Warriors their first loss of the season (although to be fair, Van Gundy came pretty close, the undefeated Warriors outlasting the C's in double overtime)
His latest statement, however, is sure to gain universal praise.
Occupying ESPN's customary late Friday night game spot, Van Gundy, with fellow analyst Mark Jackson and play-by-play man Dave Pasch by his side, was in need of topics to discuss, as the on-court entertainment between the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers had gotten well out of hand, with the Spurs possessing a 23 point lead over the hapless Lakers. Looking to fill the final few minutes of air time, Van Gundy discussed his trip to a local Tex-Mex eatery.
Van Gundy, who has been a broadcaster with the Worldwide Leader in Sports since 2007, ranted that the restaurant would dare charge him for a refill on tortilla chips, a tax that amounted to 75 cents. The "outraged" former coach was so flustered that he not only admits to botching Spurs C Boban Marjanovic's name as the 7'3 Serbian puts in a layup, but later changes his story entirely, claiming he was charged "75 bucks" before Pasch "calls him out" on the dubious pricing. The Spurs would win by a final of 109-87.
