Van Gundy out?

    A small point, perhaps, but how could Vecsey "break" the story that Iverson was being shopped? Anyone who follows the league knew that the Sixers had been considering trading him ever since last season. For someone who's supposed to be an information guy (because as a writer, he sucks) most of his columns have very little inside info. It's often just a bunch of opinion and lame one-liners. Most overrated national beat writer in any sport, IMO.

    He might turn out to be right about Van Gundy, but if he isn't, he'll write a column in which his "impeccable" sources tell him exactly why Van Gundy changed his mind about quitting. Guaranteed.

    I thought the typical school of thought was that Vecsey threw hypotheticals against the wall ... whether or not any of them stuck is another matter.

    It's a shame, too. George Vecsey, his brother, came across as a better writer and a much nicer guy.

    Carry on.

    Don't George and Peter hate each other?

    Yikes. That's troubling.
