After lastseason sweep in the first round, the hiring of Mike Woodson in August....
I thought we wouldve had Mike Woodson as headcoach by January.
Its a DAMN shame we waited so long 18-24.....the damn NBA analyst/commentators/writers
forever justifying for Dantoni for 4 seasons are the ones who kept Dantoni's Knicks job,
because Dantoni coaching didnt.......
Tanking two seasons, then in Dantoni's 3rd season he ran Stat knees for 38+ minutes
in every game the first half of season....the 2nd half of the season Stat became
aghausted/fatique/and tired after playing 25 minutes in a game.
When u do the math....it was Dantoni coaching that force Dolan to pull the Melo trade....
Mozgov & AR being DNP untill February, Turiaf being injury prone, and both Gallo & W.Chandler
were out for two weeks with injury at seperate times.
I loved his substitutions. I never liked Baron coming in the second quarter/that late in the first.
Here's to hoping you do a great job and become our head coach for the long haul, Woodson!
Woodson seems to have some sort of swag to him.
I don't know what exactly went on in the Knicks' locker room, but I get the feeling that Mike D'Antoni could not control his players.
But Woodson seems like someone YOU JUST SHOULD NOT MESS WITH.
He said that he would make DAMN sure that they were held accountable. I hope he means it.
Woodson seems like the right man for the job.
I remember a lot of interviews where players credited him over the last 6 months. I specifically remember Lin mentioning him a few times as helping out his game.
I think players disliked MAD considering the crap he said about players in post game interviews.
I think the players will work well with and respect Woodson.
So quick to anoint Woodson but I remember the Knicks looking pretty damn good during the "Linsanity" stretch when Melo sat out the entire stretch and Stat for the most part. Before you hoist Woodson up and crown him the savior, let's see if this play can be sustained for the rest of the season. We blew out a crappy Portland team (by the way, as we should) but we still are looking at Indiana twice this month as well as Philly, Atlanta, Orlando and Milwaukee (Who owns us) then we get into April and the schedule gets a little tougher!
I hope Woodson turns it around but I have a sneaky suspicion that we will be revisiting the "Trade Carmelo" theme at the end of this season.....
I'll let you know my opinion about Woody the first game we are up by 3 in the final minute and have a foul to give.
The return of Mike Bibby! Granted we were up by a lot, but would D'Antoni have gone that deep in the bench?
I'm wondering how long it will be before the iso-melo coaching system of woodson gets ripped up by the posters here. Will the anti-dant crowd resurface with new seething hatred for woodson? or will it be the dantoni suporters that take up the torch and bash woodson and call for chants of his head at games?
