Mike Woodson takes the blame for New York Knicks' problems

A season after finally advancing past the first round of the playoffs, the New York Knicks have been an absolute disaster.

They have a record of 22-40 and are 5.5 games behind the Atlanta Hawks for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with the Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers also ahead of them.

Knicks’ head coach Mike Woodson, who is squarely on the hot seat, is taking the blame for the Knicks’ problem.

“I put it all on my shoulders,” Woodson said Thursday in an interview on ESPN New York 98.7 FM’s The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show via Ian Begley of ESPN New York.

“I’ve always thought as a coach, and most coaches probably feel the same way, you need talent to win, you need healthy bodies to win. But I’ve kinda gotten past that,” Woodson added. “I think I can take whoever suits up and win with it. That’s just how I feel.”

Woodson believes he can turn the Knicks around and that he hasn’t “forgotten how to coach.”
