    Nyk Logo The Official Mike Woodson Appreciation Thread

    I realize that there are a couple of Woody threads already. I also understand that it's still too early to evaluate his work as the Knicks head coach. Nonetheless some of you may agree that there are things Woodson already deserves props for. And that's why I would like to name several points that have changed dramatically since Woodson has been in charge.

    - after D'Antoni resigned I finally feel we have a REAL coach. I don't know how about you, but I never really understood MDA, every time he was addressing the media I was trying to figure out what he was talking about. Woodson is very straight in that matter, he always makes clear what the problem is and how to solve it.

    - locker room presence. We all know D'Antoni never wanted to clash with any of his players. He'd rather step aside than look for an argument. Woodson is way different, he demands things and "makes damn sure" his players are doing what they are supposed to. He doesn't mind clashing with anyone, doesn't matter it's a $450K bench warmer or $20M superstar.

    - Woodson is a complete coach. D'Antoni was rather one dimensional while Woody, despite being a defense first coach, also takes care of the other end of the court.

    - equality, how many times did we see D'Antoni screaming at Douglas and making excuses for our stars? Woodson doesn't care about how much money you make or what is your celebrity status, if you're not giving enough effort you can be damn sure Woody will jump all over you.

    Someone needs to start another "The Official Mike D'Antoni Appreciation Thread" and thank him for GTFO New York. I was wondering what the team was missing, whether it was chemistry the wrong guys starting or whatever and it turns out it was D'Antoni himself.

    Thumbs up

    Finally, we have a chance to see our squad live up to their potential.

    Our core players are no longer neutered as a conseqence of an unprooven system.

    Thanks Woody.

    Good teams have talent. Great teams have consistency. This along with leadership are our biggest obstacles, and so far so good.

    Woody and the Knicks have achieved something not done by a coach replaced mid-season by winning by a combined 90 points. Our win streak, team stats, and the oppositions reaction (see Toronto Raptors head coach's comments) substantiate those of us opinions who supected MDA as the biggest weak-link on this team.

    We told you so.

    The Dark Wood is already feeling the inner beast of this team as the playoffs near.

    They have a legitimate shot to win the title. When the playoffs come around, itís open season. Whoís playing the hardest, the best Ö who believes that they can really get it done.

    Homecourt and all that goes out the door. Itís great to have homecourt, but hey, we (2004 Pistons) didnít have it in the Eastern Conference Final that year, and we ended up beating the Pacers. We didnít have it in the Finals that year, and we beat the Lakers Öand if these guys are honest with themselves, and hold each other accountable, their credibility is rolliní high, man, anything can happen in a playoff series. Anything.

    Default quote from coach Collins after their lost to the Knicks

    "Miami and Chicago doesn't want to see New York at 7 or 8, I can guarantee that, They're loaded. They just cracked Indiana twice, and Indiana is a good team". - Collins, Philly76's


    lmao, oh yeah...here we go.

    But D'antoni is still the better coach because he took a team to the conference finals while Woodson couldn't take a team past the second round.

    Default How Wonderful.....

    How wonderful it is to see a coach calling timeouts instead of letting the players just play.

    How wonderful to see the coach making timely substitutions!

    How wonderful it is to see our coach put shump on the most dangerous player to lock him down. (Shump Island)

    You get the idea what else is wonderful?

    Default 2012-13 Mike Woodson Coaching Performance Thread

    Our HC, defensive minded, no smiles, and Mr. Potato replica.

    Do you feel MW can lead the Knicks out of the first round and get the most out of his players?

    Do you feel MW caters too much to Melo-ball and doesn't have a clue what he wants to do with this team offensively?

    Mike Woodson for potential COY in 2012-13?

    COY? No chance.

    Woodson poses a strong challenge to Carmelo for playoffs futility. His Atlanta teams were not just eliminated, they were butt raped in their series losses.

    I think his average number of wins with Atlanta over 6 years was something like 35 wins per year, with a single 50-win season.

    Last year he looked good because teams generally play better after a coaching change; the air is clear and people breathe better, but starting from scratch this year will be a different story for him. I have very little confidence in Coach Woody as our leader.

    It's been overlooked, but Woody betrayed some immaturity and foolishness when he publicly stated that Lin would start for us next year. He played our hand when it really wasn't his business to play it, and I think his comments were instrumental in the Rockets boosting their offer.

    The guy's offensive philosophy is "give it to Melo", and I think this can work for a winning record over the regular season, but when adjustments have to be made in the heat of the playoffs, this is where his coaching will be most exposed. We saw the Heat clamp down on Melo in the First Round and Woody didn't have any answer for this clamping. Sort of like bashing your head into a brick wall.

    I don't think he caters too much to Melo-ball, I think he is probably the biggest proponent of Melo-ball outside of Melo himself.

    Woody's biggest strength is that he will never go against Carmelo, and this is what earned him the extension.

    I just hope Woodson learns to not lean on JR smith so much, when he is clearly struggling, no more trying to play the daddy role for JR

    There were times when JR had no business still being in the game

    But

    with a full training camp, woody should be SET and know exactly how he wants to execute this team, i have faith in him. This team had an impressive record under woody last season. Now we have more reliable players and Vet smartness so lets see what happens.

    Are you even a Knicks fan? All of your posts spew constant negativity. Your acts of trolling are eerily similar to fans of other teams that hate the Knicks. It's disgusting
