I'm somebody who doesn't live in town who's been keeping an eye on the pelicans for a bunch of reasons, mostly through the news and box scores. Haven't really seen the team in action that much except on TV a little bit here and there. I have heard Bill Simmons call the pelicans the worst coached team in the NBA. I've also seen what a coaching change did for the Atlanta Hawks.
Curious what New Orleans hometown fans think of Van Gundy. What's his rep as far as how he relates to players, how good is he at motivating and teaching, and anything else you folks can add. Do you think he is the right coach for this team. Why or why not?
