Orlando Magic's Stan Van Gundy joins the arena cleanup crew


The Orlando Magic's season hasn't even begun, but already Coach Stan Van Gundy is doing some sweeping.

Van Gundy volunteered to join the cleanup crew at the team's new Amway Center before it opened to the public, joining about 200 team employees who dusted, cleaned, swept and scrubbed the 18,500 seats and stairs.

"I live here too," Van Gundy said. "It's home."

The new arena — almost three times the square footage of the old — is filled with wine bars, beer bars, indoor restaurants, outdoor cafes and even a nightclub.

After helping clean, Van Gundy knew just how to celebrate in his new abode.

He bought everyone dinner.
