Yeah, no defense to speak of, translates to a lot of losses....That, and energy, by the 4th qtr...not sure if its Woody's defensive switches or what, but by the time the 4th qtr comes around, these guys are exhausted...Maybe its the conditioning crew. All i know is we lost at least 10 winnable games in the last 5 minutes of play
Well reports are saying we are gonna cut either Chris Smith or Cole real soon for Jeremy Tyler.
Knicks chairman James Dolan told New York players in a meeting Thursday that there are no trades or changes to the coaching staff forthcoming, ESPN.com has learned.
Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that Dolan gathered the team before the first practice in the wake of New York's embarrassing 29-point home loss to Oklahoma City on Christmas Day largely in an attempt to hush the growing speculation about coach Mike Woodson's job security following the Knicks' 9-19 start.
The discussion came amid increasing signs the Knicks' effort and focus under Woodson is waning on top of the significant injury issues that have plagued them all season.
It's believed Dolan took the step in an attempt to persuade Woodson's players to band together and throw their full support behind the embattled coach to help dig New York out of the sizable hole it finds itself with essentially one-third of the regular season in the books, the sources said.
When an emboldened Woodson met reporters after Thursday's practice, he promptly announced he still thinks New York can rally from its poor start to win the Atlantic Division.
"We won it last year, and I expect us to win it this year," he said.
what a dick....

they havnt followed in 30 games .. what will be different in the next 52 games.
Dolan dont understand the last-staw impact of "Woodson & Melo" not callin a time-out with 6 sec remaining in the game?
or what that does to veteran-teammates who must follow their lead for 48 minutes of every game...
Thats an article by Mark Stein on ESPN .. and yes my wife married me for my Dick...

The 2nd half of all our games are planless
You're CRAZY to think this roster has .500 talent.

Chandler, Stoudemire and Martin are too injury prone to even be ranked and all of these guys are at the end of their careers.
Bargnani is everything we didn't need and everything we should of stayed far away from.
This is the worst possible roster you can put together aside from Carmelo, Pablo, Iman, Tim, Tourre and Cole.
