Game of Zones – S5:E5: The Isle of Van Gundy


My home island grows near When we get there my brothers will bestow on each of you great knowledge And hopefully turn this season around I don’t see anything Before you see them…you’ll hear them. Sh, listen [singing]
Replay is a joke. It’s good for the officials but bad for the game What is that? Some sort of…chant? It’s a rant. A Van Gundian rant, Tobias. These monks have taken a vow of no silence [singing]
Dwight Howard is always waffling and complaining. He is a coach killer Ah, yeah, that’s lovely. I could listen to that for minutes before getting annoyed Oh, there she is! The Isle of Van Gundy [laughs] Home sweet home [singing]
And if you flop… [singing]
You should get a technical… [singing]
foul [singing]
And if you flop… [singing]
You should be fined millions of… [singing]
gold! [singing]
And if you flop… [singing]
You should be suspended from the… [singing]
game! [singing]
Because flopping ruins the game! [singing]
But they don’t listen to us [laughs] Brother Stan! Brother Jeff! Is that really you? How the hell are ya? Ugh, terrible! The whole foul review system’s a mess Nobody listens to me. How are you? I’m miserable. We’re stuck in the damn ninth seed and I’ve tried everything Could use a bit of your help, Brother Jeff Ah, the Van Gundian Monks will always help a coach in need Knights of Detroit, C’mere and form a f–king wall I want you to meet my brothers.

    The lyrics in the rant though, lmao!

    "Replay's a joke. Its good for the officials but bad for the game"

    "Dwight howard is always waffling and complaining. He is a coach killer"

    "And if you flop, you get technical foul
    And if you flop, you should be fined millions of gold.
     and if you flop, you should get suspended from the game.
    Because flopping ruins the game
     but they dont listen to us.."

    I feel for Stan Van gundy I am a pistons fan and it was clear he tried everything to give this injury plagued team some consistency. Blake Griffin was brought in to sell tickets I doubt that was only his decision.

    Van Gundy is my least favorite part of watching basketball. I can miss a game if I cant find a broadcast without his rambling and rabbit trailing through actual game play and not be too upset. I once watched a cavs vs warriors game he was announcing and he literally talked about the lunch he had the day before as a ball was stolen for a dunk that turned the game around and he didn't even bat an eye. Or acknowledge the play. The stadium is going bananas and all he can talk about is how he ate one. His disinterest in the game obviously fueled by his supreme interest in his own voice? But still getting paid top dollar to announce high profile games? Incredible. Bordering on miraculous.

    I love that the entire reason they made this video was just to get in the Jeff Van Gundy / Alonzo Mourning leg grab moment for a totally random late 90's shout out haha.

    Bay of Once, pure gold. The Mourning/VanGundy part had me in tears. Game of Zones based on 90s teams could definitely work 👍
