Former NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy isn’t impressed by how soft the NBA has become.

During the Monday night playoff game between the Suns and Clippers, the current commentator ripped the “sissification” of the league after Jae Crowder fouled Paul George. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can listen to his comment from the game below.

I couldn’t agree more if I tried. The NBA has become a joke when it comes to the toughness of the league. It’s borderline pathetic.

Players flop and act like they’ve been shot if someone breathes too close to them. It’s nothing like the game from 30 years ago.

Players might be substantially more talented, but they’re damn sure not tougher when it comes to physical contact in a game.

Van Gundy, who was the head coach of the Knicks and Rockets, hit the nail on the head when he ripped the league for being soft.

Anyone who disagrees simply doesn’t have eyes or is willingly lying. There’s no other explanation.

Props to Gundy for having the guts to speak the truth. The NBA could certainly use a bit more of that energy.
