Howard Stern

Jeff Van Gundy's a 'Real Douche Bag'

Howard Stern just ripped Jeff Van Gundy apart -- calling the guy everything from a "douche bag" to an "asswipe" and even a "midget" ... after JVG went after Stern for leaving a Knicks game early.

Stern was furious when he learned the former Knicks coach -- who's now announcing basketball games for ESPN -- called him out on the air for leaving Wednesday's game early and said people like Stern don't deserve front row seats. 

And that's why Stern WENT OFF this morning -- saying Van Gundy is a loser who doesn't respect the fact that some people "have a life" and can't spend 4 hours watching a basketball game. 

"Jeff, I hate to explain it to you, but people who are really busy and have multiple careers going and get up at all hours of the day, they cant stay at the basketball game."

Stern then went on to call Van Gundy a loser -- who can't get a job coaching in the NBA because he's a "f**king schlub."

Eventually, Howard issued a challenge to Jeff -- saying the next time JVG wants to criticize him ... "Say it to my f**king face."

Aaaand the countdown to Jeff's apology begins ...

If CBS execs are smart, and they usually aren't, they'll tap Stern to replace Letterman.

I think anyone who can afford the seats are entitled to them, if that's Stern, then who the hell is this Jeff guy to comment on it? Sounds like the Jeff guy got a free seat...who is he??

Van Gundy is absolutely right. If you know anything about Stern, you know he doesn't even like or know anything about basketball. He just goes to the Garden to be seen and people like that make me sick. Howie would much rather be sitting at home watching a Bachelor marathon.

Right on, Jeff

Stern is always a BULLY to anyone who criticizes him in the least. Van Gundy was correct------ you know you are leaving early----- don't hog the best seats. I heard Stern's rant this morning and it was incredibly mean spirited , for the very mild thing that Van Gundy said.

Seriously. Who gives a rats ass about Hamptons Howie? He hasn't been relevant in a decade, his show is awful and to regain relevance he goes on AGT and the ratings tank worse than when Jerry Springer was on! 60 year olds talking about dick and lesbians is just creepy it isn't funny

JVG needs to shut up; all he does is bitch and whine. The Knicks suck, no one wants to stay the whole game when they already know the outcome.

Coming from Stern, that's a compliment. Anybody remember his New Years Rotten Eve show where he had a freak pageant? One of the acts was a woman doing push ups using only one hand while lactating into a cup with the other. The winner ended up killing herself a few months later. What a fiasco. The guy has no morals or values, yet he feels qualified to call people douchebags... yeah, right.
