Funny how things change after a loss.
The Knicks arrived at Madison Square Garden for Game 5 dressed all in black to signify the funeral of the Celtics season. This was apparently news for Knicks coach Mike Woodson. From the Boston Globe:
I didn’t know about it until this (Thursday) morning,” Woodson said. “I made reference to our guys that we need to stay out of the paper and just concentrate on playing. That’s not important. What you wear doesn’t have anything to do with how you play on the basketball court.”
I love when coaches play the “I didn't even know about it” card. Come on. He knew. This is 2013. Everyone is connected and talks to everyone about everything.
Does he really expect people to believe that his team showing up in all black simply missed his attention? Does he not see his players until they are all suited up for the game or have a cellphone or see a television?
It would be more believable, but still bs, if he said he didn't know until after the game. ...
