Officer Barbrady: "What's all this?!"

BS: "Officer Barbrady, I'd like to reinstate my previous shenanigans. Stan Van Gundy is a joke! I didn't even punch Dwight Howard."

OB: "Alright, Brendan Haywood: do you declare shenanigans on Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy?"

"I was at home and I thought Stan Van Gundy was setting everybody up because it was April 1st," Haywood said. "I thought it was a big April Fool's joke. I thought we're all going to laugh about it, and then I realized he was serious. There's nothing to it."

OB: "OK, Stan Van Gundy, do you accept this decree of shenanigans?"

"It's really ridiculous and I want to get it on film and send it in," Van Gundy said Saturday, according to "Haywood just punched him literally with a closed fist right in the back. So [Howard] got through the game because he was loose, but then it really tightened up."

OB: "Alright, everybody get your brooms, it's shenanigans!"

Writer's note: I really didn't want to post an update on this fairly silly and potential non-story but when I found out I could make fun of it using one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite shows, I couldn't resist. For the actual nitty, gritty details, read the rest of Jeff Caplan's piece, which includes more great quotes from Haywood.
