I want to introduce Mike Woodson to someone. His name is George Costanza. He once devised a theory that would do Mike Woodson a lot of good today: do the opposite.
Before Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin were involved in a heated verbal argument after a team workout.
This team isn’t close to winning anything, so bringing back its core player for more money is counterintuitive. He has the most value and the Knicks can get the most for him in a trade.
“When you lose games the way we’ve been losing them at home, on the road, you start thinking a lot. You start playing a little tense. You start playing on your heels.”
We find the Nets and Knicks are Naismith allergic. They can’t play offense or defense. They are injured. They are in discord and disarray.
Carmelo Anthony missed a contested, 14-foot jumper at the buzzer, and the Denver Nuggets hung on for a 97-95 victory over the New York Knicks and their former star player on Friday night.
Kenyon Martin hit a jumper with 4:30 to play, the Knicks were still in it. The Knicks missed their next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night.
The Knicks’ nightmarish start just keeps getting worse. New York lost its sixth straight game Monday, this one to the Trail Blazers, who put it away early.
Woodson has said things in his post game press conferences this year that are either illogical, lies, or downright false.
After yet another loss for his New York Knicks in what’s been a trying – not to mention 3-9 – start to the season, Carmelo Anthony did not attempt to pretend everything is wonderful right now.
“We’re frustrated,” Smith said. “It’s too early to panic. But me, personally, I’m panicking. I don’t like this. I don’t want to play 3-8 basketball.”
Change is coming. A move is on the horizon. Odds are, Mike Woodson is going to find himself on the wrong side of it. And right now that would be completely understandable.
“Got to figure it out,” Melo said after New York’s third straight loss Tuesday. “That’s the only thing I can say about this. We’ve got to figure it out quick.”
The conversation was not limited to just the Knicks, as Barry showed his fiery side and got into it a little bit with Craig, who fancies himself a ‘basketball savant’…
The Knicks are playing not only against their opponents, but a timer that will hit zero at a time of Dolan’s choosing. When it does, all New York fans will feel the pain.
