If we missed say 5-7 games in november which would be an extension of two weeks to prepare for the seasion, they would definitely add those 5-7 games into the season, i.e. more back to back games, and a few 4 games in 5 night scenarios. It can be worked out.
if you have 30 some what teams, missing 5-7 games each
thats a combined 15 match ups being missed at a range of 90-100 total games.
been 3 years and alot of pints of sam adams since I graduated school; so if my math is wrong I apologize; but I think you get the idea that the NBA would be losing a significant amount of revenue cross league; if they didnt make up for something as small as 5-7 games a team.
I am feeling confident that we will have a season.

than just the assistant headcoach of defense.
Im predictin a 50+ season.
Woodson & Joe Johnson put the Hawks "team" on the map the
past 4 seasons.....imagine what "Woodson & Billups" could do to
the Knicks in the next two seasons???
Woodson is not alergic to playing bigmen for an inside game or new to
recruiting decent bigmen.
Some quality posts by all in this thread but particularly from Red and nuckles. A fast paced system does not have to equate to poor defense. All it effects is PPG, which really shouldn't be a valid indicator of how good a team is defensively. If we can be in the middle in terms of opponents fg%, and lead in other categories such as steals, blocked shots and the one category that I feel hurt us the most last season, rebounds...we will be one of the best teams in the league combined with our offense. I mean, who cares if we win 115-107 or 87-82?
So, can Woodson make enough of an impact in our opponents fg% and rebounds? Certainly, but what it will really take is for our "stars" to buy into it and lead by example. If not, it doesn't matter who we have at coach. George Karl really struggled to get Melo to commit to defense and we all know how awful Amare is at man-to-man defense and rebounding. They both talk a nice game, but need to show it on the court consistently for the Knicks to have any chance. It's about effort with those two, nothing more.

Hopefully we get Reggie Evans at the vet. minimum. That game against the Cavs two days after the trade was dreadful with the rebounding, even for a new team.
Yeah, Reggie Evans would be a good player for us to have. Having Reggie Evans would take us from being a below-average rebounding team to being a slightly above average one, and that could do wonders for us.
He is going to be a big time player in a chinese league because of his skill but more importantly, his name. Playing with NY for many years made people in China know who he is. Melo left Denver because he saw NY as the Meccaand Denver as some random place he didnt belong anymore, Chandler has NY engraved in him. He will try to be a Knick again.
So I think Chandler knew he might have Gallinari taking his starting spot, so he goes to China, tears the league up and gets a nice contract. We've seen even average players get good deals because of a good experience over seas, just look at Josh Childress; contract, one he didnt deserve. Imagine what Chandler will get in the 12-13 season.
do you really think Wilson Chandler wants to play in Denver?
Hell No! Nuggets plus George Karl is bad news.
So I think Chandler knew he might have Gallinari taking his starting spot
I doubt that....Gallo will never be as good as Wilson Chandler.
