3 New Things the New York Knicks Will Have Next Season
Well, that was depressing. Just a season after Mike Woodson took his money to the bank and lead an unconventional, twin-point guard with Carmelo Anthony as the power forward and Tyson Chandler playing all of the defense to 54 wins, a 2nd seed, and the New York Knicks first playoff series victory in forever and a half, Mike Woodson and his entire coaching staff have been released by the team. This means change for the Knickerbockers, who have missed the playoffs for the first time in four seasons, and the first time since trading for Anthony.
In a statement released by the team, Knicks GM (and general Zen overlord of basketball operations) Phil Jackson wrote that, “The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond.”
So, goodbye Mike Woodson. You had a great first year and a not so stellar second year. We wish you well in your next basketball gig. Here’s some things that should be different by the time the Knicks hit the hardwood next season.
