Mike Woodson Doesn’t Think He Should Be Fired

Well, of all the befuddling and confounding things New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has said this season, this next quote might take the cake.   Woodson: “Is it fair to let me go? I don’t think so. But I don’t get to make that decision.” — Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) April 16, 2014   He also added this gem of an answer in the pre-game presser.   Woodson: “Am I the...

J.R. Smith Not Planning on Discussing Free Agency With Melo

The New York Knicks are coming off of a colossally disappointing season that saw them miss the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference despite having the second highest payroll in the entire league.

Carmelo Anthony had to borrow Toure Murry’s headband during end of Knicks-76ers

It appeared that the New York Knicks were going to cruise to a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers up by double-digits with less than five minutes to play. Then the 76ers went on a 16-1 run and brought the game close enough for the New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson to bring his starters back. Apparently, Carmelo Anthony (thinking that he probably wasn’t going back in) had...

Raymond Felton Says Knicks Think They Can Make The Playoffs

Well….. Because the East is so bad even though the Knicks are 19 games under .500 they are “only” 8 games back in the loss column for the 8th playoff spot (6.5 half games overall). So, Felton technically isn’t wrong, but with only 21 games to go in their season the Knicks would have to go on a magical run (they are 1-9 in their last 10 games).  Let’s just be honest, it...
