He had to get off his butt and coach...the players recently admitted he's been more vocal and hands on. He tried to sit back and let those guys figure it out on their own in the beginning. The number 1 rule a coach should know about coaching....especially players who are great, want to be great, want to win....more than anything....
THEY WANT TO BE COACHED!!!!
Doesn't hurt to put the 1/5th down either.

Glad I was working and missed this one...um um um this team is not competing right now and I think Woody is going to end up being the fall guy...Woody has lost these guys.
Jason Kidd signed a 2 yr contract with us to put in 20 yrs as a player like Kareem Abdul Jabbar (Lew Alcinder) ....
The only reason Jason Kidd came to New York was to tutor Jeremy Lin for two years, then become the headcoach of the Knicks to take Tyson/Stat/Melo/and Jeremy Lin to the FINALS in 2014-15.
Mavs owner Cuban & HC Rick Carlyle did not like Kidds future plan move.
After one season with Carmelo Anthony, Kidd wanted out of his contract on good terms with the NBA.
It was not hard to figure out that Kidd and the Russian already negotiated a headcoach contract, before the Knicks season ended.
Everything was worked out weeks before the 2013 draft night.
Its hard to coach a team when the franchise player is a CANCER PG...
Yes I agree Kidd reached out in advance to pursue coaching. Not sure at what time but it was premature no doubt and if he truly thought the world of Melo and this organization he wouldn't have given up $6mil in guaranteed money to go into unchartered territory that being the in state rival.
