While most of the focus throughout the NBA on Wednesday night was on winning, Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy addressed a different topic — tanking.

Van Gundy, whose Pistons wrapped up a 39-43 season with a 119-87 win over the Chicago Bulls, criticized teams for losing on purpose, saying before tipoff that “something needs to change” throughout the league.

“Even in Philly’s years, I don’t think the players and coaches [were] out there tanking,” Van Gundy told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune. “It’s who they decide to put on the court and build [the] roster. But when you have a third of the league trying to lose games, I don’t think that’s good for our product at all. To me, it’s a lack of integrity in your league and lack of respect for your fans. That’s just me, and I think I go against the norm.
