Stan Van Gundy has had prior success in the NBA. He has a history of winning and a knack for developing young talent, which the Pelicans have in abundance.

I hope we see the basketball team out of NOLA develop into a championship contending team in the next few years. Stan Van Gundy has everything necessary to develop this young group of talented hoopers into a title-caliber team.
