For the last 22 games, Mike Woodson has been a godsend to New York.
For once, everyone is excited about Knicks basketball and is talking about the goings on the court rather than drama off of it. No more bickering coach clashing with management over the direction of the team. No more struggles while high-priced stars are hurt or failing to fit into the scheme. Much like Jeremy Lin seemed to light up Madison Square Garden, Mike Woodson has brought some much needed stability.
The Knicks are in the Playoffs for the second straight year, the franchise's first back-to-back Playoff berths since 2000 and 2001, and are playing about as well as anybody in the Eastern Conference. New York even still has an outside chance of sneaking past Orlando into the sixth seed and could avoid Miami in the first round. Life has been good in this 16-6 run the Knicks have put together with Mike Woodson at the controls.
Good times last only so briefly in the City that Never Sleeps.

BREAK THE BANK
The Knicks could be in the market for a new coach after the season ends, and a report says they could throw big money at Phil Jackson.
It’s not everyday that an NBA team’s superstar also fills the role of X-Factor.But with Amar’e Stoudemire having just recently made his return to the court, that’s exactly what he could represent.Overcoming obvious obstacles in the form of injuries to Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin, the Knicks powered through to a 9-4 record with both players sidelined. Thanks to an M.V.P.-like...
Following the Knicks' 99-93 win over the Clippers last night, gearing up for the playoffs will become first priority. With just one game left in the regular season (tonight against the lowly Bobcats), and game one of the playoffs to be played on Saturday, the team can use all the rest they can get.This is why, according to ESPN New York, Carmelo Anthony is expected to sit out...
The cynical side of me thinks that of course Carmelo Anthony is going to say publicly that he loves Mike Woodson because he doesn't want to be labeled a coach killer after already getting one coach fired earlier this season. The more understanding, and less judgemental, side of me thinks that maybe Mike Woodson is just a better fit for this Knicks team moving forward though too...
Last week, La La Vasquez (wife of Knicks star Carmelo Anthony) granted the New York Post a tour of their Hell's Kitchen apartment.The major highlight of the story for us bloggers was a picture of their living room featuring a portrait of Carmelo done by artist Paul Gerben hanging above their fireplace:It is a pretty impressive portrait but I'm not sure if the purple goes...

Carmelo Anthony, his wife Lala plus his Knicks teammates, Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis and JR Smith were spotted at a dinner thrown by luxury brand Audemars Piguet at Catch in New York’s Meatpacking District. Also in attendance, Kim Kardashian and her new boo Kanye West, and rapper/producer extraordinaire Swizz [...]
They are definitely beatable. Game on Amare!
The New York Knicks don't seem overly concerned about where they start their postseason regardless of the outcome of their regular-season finale.
The Charlotte Bobcats, however, have plenty of incentive to win Thursday night to avoid capping an utterly miserable and potentially record-setting season of futility.
For the Knicks (35-30), a victory would ensure them the No. 7...
