Former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy knows a thing or two about fitting in with Dwight Howard, and like most coaches around the league he realizes that talent wins. He also realizes Pau Gasol is talented. And so when asked by NBC Sports Radio host Erik Kuselias about it Van Gundy sounds like a coach — “hey, lets give this some time and see how it works with Steve Nash back before we jump to conclusions.”

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated was on NBC’s SportsTalk on the NBC Sports Network and reiterates what most of us are hearing — the Lakers are going to follow that advice. For now. But things could well change in a month or two. Especially if the Lakers find a trade deal they like.
