Dwight Howard and Stan Van Gundy had a relationship that was contentious at times during their final season together with the Orlando Magic.
But Howard and Van Gundy have remained in touch over the past year.
"I don't think there was ever a point where I didn't like Dwight personally. I like him. I've had a lot of laughs with him. He's a good guy. We had some things that we disagreed on. We had some things we disagreed strongly on and some times where we pissed each other off. And those were well-documented. But it doesn't negate all of the good things he did and the good times that were there in the five years we were together. So for me it's not a hard thing to overlook."
