You'd think the 0-2 record the Pistons took into Saturday's home opener would be a little easier for Stan Van Gundy to put into perspective given the fact that 11 years ago--as a rookie NBA head coach--his Miami Heat opened the season 0-7.
You'd be wrong, mostly.
"Every loss, I'm miserable," he said about 90 minutes before tipoff Saturday night. "Perspective is not a great word to use in conjunction with me."
So it's nice to have an owner willing to lend that perspective.
