Stan Van Gundy has some harsh words for the New York Knicks as rumors involving Zion Williamson swirl around the franchise.

Hey, New York Knicks, not everyone wants to play for you. Well, that’s according to Stan Van Gundy.

The former NBA coach wants to make sure you know and understand that there are some stars who aren’t actually all that interested in playing for the Knicks.

As rumors swirl and speculation surrounds New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson, Van Gundy is weighing in on the notion that the New York Knicks might have a shot with the Pelicans’ young star.

Van Gundy isn’t holding back on this at all.

Stan Van Gundy unloads on New York Knicks as rumors surround Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans

The full response is a pretty powerful one.

Who knows what is up ahead for Williamson, the Pelicans, and the Knicks? Maybe it is possible that Williamson does end up there? Maybe he won’t. Regardless, it sure seems like Van Gundy is tired of people assuming that every young, talented star will end up with the Knicks.

The franchise is pretty bad right now. It seems to have a number of issues that should probably be addressed sooner rather than later.

Just because the team is located in New York and was once a prominent, prestigious franchise doesn’t mean that’s what it is currently. It’s like whenever Nebraska football fans try to sell everyone on how great the Huskers are. It’s been a pretty long time since the 1990s ended. It might be time to move on and recognize reality.
