Clippers head coach Doc Rivers lost three assistant coaches this offseason.

Woodson is a solid defensive coach. He's definitely qualified to be an assistant coach. He did a lot to introduce some semblance of defense to the current day Knicks.

He had no business being a head coach in the NBA but I wish him the best and now he can learn from one of the best coaches in the NBA.

I knew he wasn't going to be out of work for long. 

Still, that 37-45 record, should have kept his behind away from ALL benches longer. George Karl got the axe after getting COTY. Go figure? 


No, it's not entirely Woodson' fault. Jr's slow start, Bargs turned out to be garbage. Rookies, well are rookies. Shump turned into Copperfield and disappeared. Stat was on limited duty due to previous injury and reduced wear for a playoff run, which never happened,  K-Mart unfortunately stayed injured and finally the two that got traded to Dallas, (video below)


All were the factors in the Knicks and ultimately Woody's undoing.

Which fortunately, got us Phil Jackson 

and a promising coach in Derek Fisher. 

Did you guys/gals see the Summer League training video yet? 

Fisher looking BOSS!  


Good Luck *not against the Knicks and thanks for the good times, 

Cause' the bad one's made me sign 2 petitions.

IDK if this was already suggested on the previous thread but I see Houston have to get rid of Lin T jones and Montejous (spelling?) in order to sign Bosh and Parsons. So i was think why not use the trade exception from Felton to take Jones and Monte. since its rumored that they already have a deal lined up for lin? I mean yes we would be helping out the Rockets by allowing them to get Parsons and Bosh BUT we would also be helping our selves getting younger, cheaper, more assets.

@rgm891 That's what Woody's cooties will do for you. Expect the same things to happen in Clipperville. lol

Melo gets so much of a bad rep.  He really wants to win.  I had a chance to see him last summer when I took my son to Melocamp.  I remember him telling the kids to work hard and that an NBA career goes by quickly - that is why he is dedicated to winning a championship soon and would love to do it in NY sooner than later.

"Lets win a f#%@&in game..."

And they said Melo is not a leader... He just tried to motivate the team and DAW interjected... Melo had to explain...

"Im talking to them man..."

Yep...  It's Karma for Morey with that Lin poison pill.  Would be hilarious if Dirk took the offer.

@NYKnickerBocker I think he is the most misunderstood player in the NBA and he is treated unfairly. Good luck to your son. Maybe one day he'll sign a big contract.

@knickfan2  yeah they would be a problem but Dirk is loyal to Cuban.
