Knicks coach Mike Woodson still believes in team

Mike Woodson, coach of the New York Knicks, still thinks the team is n good shape despite starting the season poorly. He also thinks he still has the support of the players as well as the front office. According to an article on ESPN,

“I don’t think I have lost the locker room,” Woodson said during his weekly show on “The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show” on ESPN New York 98.7. “I don’t think I have lost players from an individual standpoint. What I have lost is a Tyson Chandler and a Raymond Felton, that is what I have lost from my starting team.

 

“And I don’t know if you can go on any roster and take two starters out of their roster and they still survive,” Woodson added of his two injured starters. “They might play in spurts like we are doing today. I am not making excuses but I would sure love to take my chances with Tyson and Raymond in my lineup.”

It ‘s been a tough road for the Knicks since the season started, as they are currently 3-10, even though they sit in fourth place in the Atlantic Division. It will be interesting to see how Woodson and the rest of the team can bounce back from a slow start as the season progresses into December.
