This is one of the worst run offenses I have seen the Knicks run in my life. For the first time I don't know which offense is worse for this team, Mike D'antoni's or Mike Woodson's.
For those of you who want Woodson fired (or to change his offensive philosophy) what would you recommend as an offensive scheme for this team?
Here are my suggestions
1) Take away Carmelo Anthony's control over this team. Even when Carmelo plays more "passive" it comes at the most random times when he feels like it. It doesn't feel like there is an offensive philosophy or organization in place.
2) Take away isolation basketball. Try to play more team oriented basketball and pass the ball more often. This has been my biggest gripe with Woodson. No stupid JR chucks, fadeaway contested JR mid range jumpshots, or Carmelo's boneheaded ISO plays. Do you know Carmelo is 1-16 in his last game winning or game tying shots? Even though we lost tonight, I'm happy Carmelo didn't take that last shot on an ISO play.
3) Hold all players accountable. This one is controversial but it feels like Woodson plays favorites. The leash on JR is everlasting, and very rarely does JR get benched. Any other coach would put JR in the dog-house by now. I don't understand Mike Woodson's love for veterans.
4) Show some Faith in the rookies. As a result of Iman Shumpert playing the best basketball of his life, THJ's playing time suffers. The man is 2nd in PER out of ALL ROOKIES! Why the *** isn't he playing more? JR Smith is stinking it up.
That is all.
