Woodson declines comment on Dolan story, Metta says he’s an ‘Alien’

Adam Zagoria

woodsonKnicks coach Mike Woodson declined comment on an ESPN.com story that owner Jim Dolan told the players the coach was safe and no trades would be made.

“I’m not here to discuss in-house matters,” he said before the Knicks lost to the Toronto Raptors, 95-83, to fall to 9-20.

Woodson has been on the hot seat because of the team’s disastrous start, but has long insisted he hasn’t played with a full complement of healthy players and wants the chance to do so.

Meantime, Metta World Peace declared himself an “alien” when asked about Woodson’s status.

“I’m an alien, I wasn’t there,” World Peace said when asked about the Dolan guarantee.

“My focus is on winning championships,” he added. “I don’t focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships. That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta. It is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind.”

No sign of Jeremy Tyler. How long will it take for him to get into shape? This team needs new blood...

MWP may just be this generation's Yogi Berra.

The guy is brilliant. My son has seen him on some comedy shows. Too bad his knees are shot.

After next year can we sign Jeremy Lin? Or will he be traded?

When can we sign Bobby Brown? That needs to be first on our list and then we should sign Earl Barron. Man that would be great!

At 4-9 we were underachievers, but at 9-20, we are just sad and pathetic. They will move on.
