Van Gundy's "form a wall" timeout has become a rallying cry for Pistons fans

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy unintentionally created a rallying cry for Pistons fans during a timeout with 0.1 seconds left in Detroit's win over San Antonio Tuesday.

The Pistons led by one after a Brandon Jennings layup and the Spurs only had enough time to tip a shot in, not catch and shoot it. So Van Gundy wanted his team to just defend the basket from a tip in. The words Van Gundy used to describe how to defend the play have gone viral. Van Gundy unaware what he was saying was being broadcast just yelled, "We just form a (expletive) wall."

People have begun selling t-shirts with the phrase online and the saying has inspired countless memes and videos on social media.

See Van Gundy's reaction to it all in the video below. And if you want to hear the unedited version of his now famous timeout click the video below it, but warning it contains profanity.
