    Default 15-5 To Clench Playoff Birth

    This team is 15-5 since Woodson took over coaching.

    The question is now has he done enough to get the full Gig next year?

    maybe, but the playoffs will be the deciding factor. I think woody will get most of his shine in the playoffs because this is where his biggest attribute (defense) will be on display. He is very good at coaching D and his subbing has been damn near close to flawless. If we make it to the second round and retain a full roster...we can beat anyone. Scoring isn't going to be a problem...I actually think we hold a slight edge when playing in a series....especially if we have a full healthy roster.

    no, of course that is not enough. at this point would you give him the job based off of 15-5 or would you wait 1 week to see what he does in the playoffs? What if he goes 0-4? Get swept? If he wants to lock in the job he'll have to win the 1st round playoffs.

    anything less than that. the knicks will consider their options.

    If the players are willing to play hard for him then yes! We've always had the talent, its about the effort and commitment. If they will show that, then thats all you need. Also, lets just accept the Phil Jackson isnt coming here, so whose better out there....

    How can the Playoffs be the deciding factor when we're facing Miami with no home court advantage in the first round?

    Without Jeffries, Lin and a semi-fit Amar'e with close to no game-sharpness due to injury, we're destined to get swept.

    Melo played like Superman last Sunday and we still lost and it was @ The Garden.

    Not even Phil Jackson could beat the Heat without Lin, Jeffries and a sharp Amar'e.

    The Playoffs shouldn't be the deciding factor imo. His future plans and the availability of certain coaches should be. This is not the end of the road, we gotta make the next step during the offseason to approach 3rd or 4th seed at worst next season and win a Playoff series with home court advantage. If Woodson's plan sounds good and a Jeff Van Gundy or Phil Jackson is not available (realistically that is) we should keep Woody imo.

    I think we'll be fine, STAT gets 4 games to get a rhythm, we dont need Lin I don't care what anyone says, all we need is to limit turnovers, not fall in love with the 3, defend, rebound and play together

    Honestly if he doesn't bring Woodson back I'm out because he's earned it

    exactly my point. if he can win the series. he's locked in for sure. anything else. the knicks will look at their options carefully. OP asked if he's locked in. Only way he is 100% locked in is if they win the playoff series. Not that he won't be considered or considered heavily if he doesn't win the series.

    so far he has a good chance but if we get swept in horrible fashion than we should look elsewhere.

    But i like him so much that the only other name I would take over him is Phil Jackson.
    But I am hesitant with Jackson because look at how all brand name coaches have turned out in NY....Larry Brown, Lenny Wilkins, Don Nelson, etc.
