Mike Woodson mentioned that if J.R. Smith does not snap out of his funk he might look to the bench for a spark. I understand his position on this topic, but if you sit J.R. you might lose him for the rest of the playoffs. Even though he is driving me crazy now, he still gives the Knicks the best chance to win.

“I’m not going to kick him to the curb,’’ Woodson said on his ESPN Radio Show on Wednesday. “He’s a big part of what we’ve done this season. ‘’
However, Woodson added, “I’ll gauge J.R. as we go along. If I feel he’s not giving me anything, I can always turn to other guys on that bench. I feel good about the guys that come in off the bench. If he’s struggling and I feel the need, I got to pull him. I will do that as head coach. ‘’
If Woody does make the call down the bench, who will he call on? I believe that guy might be Q-Rich! Q can still shoot and give you a solid defensive effort in limited minutes. The most logical player to pick up some minutes would be Cope. Even though he is a SF/PF, you can move Shump over to the 2 and use PP a little more, giving Cope the chance he DESERVES.
