The Van Gundy Leg Fight with Dan Devine

From defensive masterminds to offensive wizards, the NBA is full of legendary coaches. But how often do we see these coaches put their body on the line? After a heated 1997 Eastern Conference Semifinals, the New York Knicks and Miami Heat met again in the first round of the 1998 NBA playoffs. In the last few seconds of Game 4, former teammates turned heated rivals Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning threw punches causing Knicks Head Coach Jeff Van Gundy to run across the court and cling to Mourning's leg. Dan Devine, National NBA Writer for Yahoo Sports, talks about this iconic coaching moment, navigating the world of sports writing, the (limited) best moments in Knicks history, and his favorite NBA interview.
