The New York Knicks have gotten off to a disaster off a start.
The Knicks are coming off a 50-win season that saw them finally advance to the second round of the playoffs, defeating the Boston Celtics in six games (they were defeated by the Indiana Pacers in six games in the second round).
This year has not gone so well. The Knicks are just 6-15 and are in a fight with the Brooklyn Nets, who are 7-14, as to which team is the most disappointing.
When you don’t win in New York, you’re quickly fired. However, Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think head coach Mike Woodson can worry about anything.
“When we win, the heat is off. When we lose, the heat is on. That’s just our business, that’s our society, that’s New York,” Anthony told Ian Begley of ESPN New York. ”It happens. He can’t worry about that. We can’t worry about that.”
Woodson continues to claim he isn’t worried about his job, but if the Knicks keep losing, he likely won’t have a job to worry about.
