Woodson is taking the Knicks to the second-round....4 year contract....
Rick Carlisle is a better coach then Woody....
Jax is not coming back....he doesnt have the energy for the season travel, or the patience to put up with
the issues of 10 to 11 players....Dolan big-buck$$$ will only lure Jax into a half of season.

If the Knicks can work themselves to leading the division and go deep in the playoffs the job is likely his. The biggest negative I heard about woodson was the Hawks did only iso in the playoffs. It seems like Woodson has taken that time and improved his offensive plays (a lot was d'antoni's) and made some key offensive adjustments.
1) the Knicks are most playing halfcourt morem
2) the Knicks are trying to get higher percentage shots more
3) he is playing the bench earlier to give everyone a chance to get warm early.
It's his job to lose. Phil Jackson is going to want control and Dolan would only bring him in and give him that control if the Knicks looked like losers.
Also mike Woodson looks like a better coach and Spoestra and mike brown so the Knicks could be doing worse.
