Going head to head with the Bulls in the first-round without Rose only means we are good for one win in that series....Bulls bench depth is to deep an organize for a series.
The bulls have the deepest bench in the NBA IMO.

Is the truth bashing???
Woody's coaching has got on my bad side the past 3 games....Hawks, Cavs, Pacers....hypothetically speaking: if I was Stat, or Jefferies, or Lin, watching Woody's coaching the last 3 games my plans of return would be in the 2012-13 season.
How could Woody not notice Landry Fields outstanding hustle on both sides of the court build the Knicks a 17 point lead while Pacers were stagnated on Melo-Melo-Melo on offense/defense?
How could Woody not give our ungellin bench-players some decent playintime vs a tier-3 mediocre Cavs team?
And the game vs the Hawks is unquestionably the worst substitution we had all season.
Woody's routine substitution vs various types of offense/defense teams stink.
I think he's also suddenly enforced his offensive style on the team. This team has relied fully on ISO's over the past three games. Problem is when Anthony stops making shots, the team's offence remains deadlocked (see 4th quarter vs Indiana). That way if the defence isn't up to scratch, there's no way the game will be won (see 4th quarter vs Indiana). Some offensive variety wouldn't harm the team. We definitely have multiple threats to utilise on offence.
only thing he grew as a coach was his eyebrows.
Hopefully that he learned his lesson that if Smith is cold and Landry is hot then put Landry in.............Fields is either on or off ..so when he is on let him play...
And although I think Jordan is not ready....let him play defense against at the end of the quarters on Howard...if he fouls him who cares....

What I mean is....PG-Lin & PF-Stat is missing with injuries from the starting lineup, who did Woody replace them with? PG-Davis & rookie combo-guard-Shump! come'on? Davis/Shump/Fields in the starting lineup is good for small lineups like Boston, but when it comes to Chicago big frontcourt starting lineup....Tyson Chandler is out muscle on the boards....we shouldve been rotating Harrellson & Novak in the starting lineup too. But Woody dont want to add Jerome Jordan to the rotation (foolish move).
I am still trying to figure out since Stat injury (and a injured Jefferies) why is a decent rebounder Harrelson only averaging 9 minutes per game?
you do realize that he coached a playoff team for so long in atlanta? they were nothing before him
i hope woody stays for 3 years at least, that mustache creature is no better
He did a Dantonio today......Close your eyes and pray Smith gets hot....6 for 22 with a second rest in the 4th quarter and most of the 3rd.....His Love of smith is a reminder of Danotnio antics.....I like JR in the game but 6-22 without a breather does not take a genious to figure out the guy needs a rest
