If you are a Houston sports fan, you surely know former Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy is a huge fan of Houston sports. Despite no longer being the head coach of the Rockets, Van Gundy still makes his home here in the city.

If there was any doubt about his allegiances, JVG decided to let his opinions on the Texans’ drafting of Clemson QB Deshaun Watson fly during the national broadcast of an important NBA playoff game between the Celtics and Bulls. On Thursday night, JVG boxed out his broadcast partner and did his thing. You can watch it here courtesy of YouTube user bigjeet08:

Coach, believe me, we all appreciate you showing the Texans and Houston sports in general some love while you’re bored at your day job.

Long live JVG.
