As expected, the Knicks have fired Mike Woodson and his entire coaching staff after a fairly disastrous season that ended without a postseason bid. Woodson was 116-89 in two-plus seasons with the Knicks, including playoffs, but this is Phil Jackson's team now. Jackson said in a statement:
The Knicks are done being bad for this season, so it's almost time to introduce a new coach. You know it, I know it, Carmelo Anthony knows it, Phil Jackson knows it, and Mike Woodson knows it. Steve Kerr knows it too, it seems: According to a report in the Post, Kerr "absolutely expects" to be offered the Knicks job,…

Popped on ESPN.com to check the boxscore of tonight's Knicks-Hornets game. Had to see how the local basketball team was doing. According to the boxscore, the Knicks have on their bench a 54-year-old guard/forward who last played in 1991. That's a veteran player, right there.
Do not ask for whom the bell tolls Knicks fans, it tolls for thee's playoff hopes.
