Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson disses Carmelo Anthony’s ” game.”
Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson may be alienating himself from his number one fan within the organization.
Now that the Knicks’ exit from the playoffs are a foregone conclusion it seems that Woodson is starting to pick out changes that others need to make if the team is to become a contender.
According to the New York Post, his first target is Carmelo Anthony.
“Expectations aren’t going to change in New York, you know that,’’ Woodson said. “They shouldn’t. Rightfully so. Anthony’s going to have to raise his game. He’s got to do things this summer to better his game — as well as Tyson [Chandler] and Amar’e [Stoudemire]. If I’m the head coach here, I have to make sure it happens. It’s the only way to get out of the rut in terms of him being a first-round exit. He’s got to change that.”
“I like to see [that] and he’s made major strides this year,’’ Woodson said. “We started this journey, he made guys around him better and he was better for it. That has to be a continuation. I got to push him to be in better shape when you start the season. A lot of things that got to be changed. Not a lot of things, but … There’s got to be some changes to get to the next level.’’
Raise your hand if you think that Mike Woodson should take some responsibility for this series.
