Former NBA head coach Jeff Van Gundy has been broadcasting NBA games for ESPN since 2007, so needless to say he’s pretty comfortable with his job. Maybe a bit too comfortable as JVG decided to sit down during his live shot during the opening tip of Friday nights game between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.
As Van Gundy and play-by-play man Mike Breen were giving their pre-game introduction, JVG looked straight into the camera and then slowly began to sit down, inching towards disappearing from camera view in the most hilarious of fashion.
Van Gundy caught himself but the camera had already decided to move away so the former Knicks and Rockets head coach likely thought he got away with the blunder, but not exactly.
Sitting across the court was former co-host and now head coach of the Warriors, Mark Jackson, who noticed Van Gundy prematurely sitting down. Not missing a beat, Jackson mocked Van Gundy from the other side of the floor as can be seen in the video below:
