But no question the players in particular, those so-called leaders of this team failed miserably... made playoffs included. You don't play for 8th seeds with a capped out roster and no assets in the fold for the future. No one agreed with any critic prior to season's begin who had us pegged lower than a 5th seed. The expectations lowered so greatly this season now we're crowning this team if they snag the HateSeed.
I think what has contributed to some fan tension and dissension when we try to split the pie chart of blame, when everyone is at fault...EVERYONE!!!!

A season without any team chemistry on offense/defense (33 win season).
A season without the players and coaches being on the same-page.
A season so embarrassing the fans protest the owner, to the point the NBA brass had to hire the Wizard of B.ball as president.
A season of individual (isolation) b.ball, where either ISO-Melo or ISO-JR were on the court throughout every 48 minute lineup controlling the offense.
Wow this site has changed since i last been here
The majority of (playoff teams and non playoff teams) for their final 5 games has been giving 10 players 20 minutes of playing-time in each of the final 5 games of the regular season. WHY?
Last night, our coach Woodson who been eliminated from making the playoffs on Friday only gave 9 players playing-time in sunday game with only 7 Knicks players receiving 20+ minutes of playing-time. Is there something wrong with this type of coaching with 3 games remaining in a no playoff season?
This type of coaching are for small-market teams who have to use 8 or less players in their rotation to win, bc half of the roster are quality NBA players, and the other half of the roster are develop cheap players from the D.League.
At the beginning of the Knicks 2013-14 season, I was worried about how Woodson was goin to give 12 players equal playingtime throughout the season??? Woodson Failed!
All 12 names (on bottom) expected decent playing-time in 20 games of our first 25 games to start the season, expecting to be rotated in different lineups to get on the same-page at the start of the season. It never happen.
We started the season with 11 experience vets expecting vets minutes in a vets lineup to GELL in a same-page system. Our new vets did not expect to be a part of Woodson's spot-minute program, playing in every other-other game.
3) K-Mart (resign)
4) Barg (pickup)
6) MWP (pickup)
7) JR (resign)
9) Prig (resign)
10) Beno (pickup)
12) Rookie THJ, or Cole, or T.Murry
Woodson -8 man rotation throughout the 2013-14 season with Melo or JR in every lineup in each game lead to a 35 win season.
Who at the start of the season was expecting to see a so-call defensive-coach Woodson put in a GELLIN defensive-lineup of "Tyson/K-Mart/MWP/Shump/Prig" on the court in all our crunchtime game this season for the WIN???
I wanted to see all 5 of the Knicks best defensive-players in a lineup this season, it never happen...
We don't know all the "puppet" and "biased" stuff, but we do however know, that this team was not coached the way it was supposed to. I don't claim to be a basketball expert, it's just common sense.
