Stan Van Gundy Officially Introduced as Pistons President and Head Coach

Stan Van Gundy stole the show Thursday afternoon when he was officially named the president of basketball operations and head coach of the Detroit Pistons.  The charisma that it takes to turn around a franchise was more than evident as he and owner Tom Gores talked to local media at the Palace about what needs to be done to rebuild a historic winning tradition.

It was clear that both see a vision for this team long-term and in the immediate future. Most importantly, both the owner and the president of basketball operations are on the same page.

It was the possibility of creating the most unified organization, the legacy of the Pistons, and the connection he felt with Tom Gores that lured him in.

We’ll have more on Stan Van Gundy’s introductory press conference later. Here are some of the best quotes and thoughts from the presser.
