Van Gundy: ‘We’re really messed up as a team’

The Detroit Pistons’ coach (Stan Van Gundy), wearied by a ninth consecutive loss Tuesday, 106-96 to the Los Angeles Lakers, tore into his team as one that is “messed up” mentally, “awful” offensively, and wracked with “dilemmas” — he used that word five times — that led them to play better in preseason than regular season.

“We’re really messed up right now, I mean we’re really messed up as a team,” Van Gundy said. “Lot of dilemmas. Lot of guys feeling pressure or whatever. But we’re really not right mentally right now. That’s what we talked about. That’s got to change before anything else does.”

“We don’t have enough talent to overcome lack of effort,” Van Gundy said. “And again, I don’t think it’s laziness. I think there’s too much (stuff) up here (in their heads), and I don’t know how we get it out.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
