Full Play and Aftermath
There have been many more like this from other games, a couple which I believe were posted here before. Shump has every right to call out Melo. The sad part about it he'll probably be reprimanded for doing this only making his relationship with this organization more volatile than it already is. I'd say Woodson is losing the team. Man watching Artest come over and calm him down while Woodson sits there oblivious to what was going on is disgraceful. This is very reminiscent of Nate and Malik fighting on the huddle in Washington(?)
Shumpert had his man, but Melo switched -- unnecessarily -- and Shump was forced to switch. Clyde often complains about Woodson's constant switching. Let Shumpert stick with his man.
Woodson has the switching defense going on to cover half the players on our teams defensive lapses ... that vid was just one of them. Why can't Woodson try the traditional approach with a skeletal switch (help D)
Woodson have to go .. but Woody is not the 3-13 problem.
ISO-Melo is the problem .. teammates had enough of Melo callin the shots on their playingtime.
Shump screamed on Melo in a time-out, and Shump is replace with JR in the lineup.
So far its Amare/K-Mart/Tyson/Prig/Meta/and now Shump has been taken off of Melo's christmas list.
Big example, when Melo fall on the court what Knicks teammate rush over to help him up???
Dolan played a trick on his Goldenboy Melo by not having a GM to start the 2013-14 season.
Melo's comment after the 103-99 loss to Pelicans, "we are playing to lose" ....
Melo want more players traded, but we dont have a GM to answer Melo's request.
Woodson got a PASS on Melo's comment that Woodson is not the blame for our losses.
What would happen to Mike Woodson if he cut Melo's minutes down to 30 minutes per, and we go on a winning streak?
That would show the solution to our problem...
Worst coach in the NBA, you can see Shumpert trying every game.
People say his defense is off this season, it's not easy to defend two people at once. Switching on defense has never worked in the NBA, I don't think it ever will. Knicks lived by this the last 3 seasons, Melo is comfortable with it as well JR.
Shumpert is unhappy, I think World Peace is too with how the team is directing themselves to the worst team in the NBA.
We need guys like Shumpert and World Peace.
We just need a coach who will emphasis a gameplan on defense.
Pretty stoked to see Melo quit on another coach (his third in as many coaches) and complain about the chemistry on a team he basically handpicked.

anyway upcoming game is key game of every game till now
IF Knicks will loose i will really cosider watching just highlights insted of watching full games
if they cant beat @ home bobcats away wizards and now pelicans
Knicks problem is not MELo but Felton and JR and their NCAA level of playing
Felton is like fooking MUCk finishing each game with 3-5 TO's that unacceptable
JR a streetball? please cut him ASAP
MWP 34 seconds total Woodson exchanged brains with some1?
Ryan Andreson is perfect piece for POP SPURS he should be there
Knicks assistant coaches are Jim Todd
-Following the 2007-08 season in Milwaukee, he again teamed with Woodson on Mike’s Atlanta staff from 2008-09 through 2009-10. Including the Knicks’ march to the 2012 post-season, Todd’s teams have reached the NBA Playoffs in six of his 13 seasons in the League. “I would say that this is definitely the most talented team I’ve been involved with,” said Todd as he prepared for his first full season in New York.
What does that tell you?
Darrell Walker is another of our assistants, a former WNBA coach....
Herb Williams is still coaching.
Knicks arguably has the weakest coaching staff in the NBA...Woodson, Todd, Walker and Williams...it's pretty obvious to expect players to argue with each other and quit on the coaches when the coaches have no ability to maintain order within the team.
