07:35 AM ET 02.10 | On the one hand, Mike Woodson believes he will still be the head coach of the Knicks after the All-Star break. [But he] also seems resigned to the fact that he won't coach the team beyond this season. Woodson revealed that his theme recently to the players is that he's a "big boy" and can deal with the consequences of a season that has fallen far short of James Dolan's expectations of championship or bust. "They know it's dangling," Woodson told reporters early Sunday. "My theme to our players is that 'Woodson's a big boy. He's been around the block a few times.' It's a part of the business if it happens. It's never been about me. ... The coach plays a major role but at the end of the day the players have to be the guys that play at a high level."

Which Mike is getting fired first? Woodson or Dumbtonie. I say Woodson. Uncle Dumbtonie is stuck in LA for 2 more years.

Woodson definitely D'Antoni has a legit excuse with injuries but they were going no where anyway. Knicks may make the move to show Melo he should stay.

Dolan sucks...

It's sad the team doesn't play hard enough to hang for four quarters. The talent is there.. the team needs someone they can rally around to play up to par. And it's not Woody's fault... sometimes players get tired of coach's voice and something's gotta give. Since you can't fire the players the fat lady gets to sing for the coach.... I saw her in Woody's office having a mic check!... hahaha

James Dolan can't seriously have a "Championship of Bust" mentality with that roster. Seriously has he seen that roster? Right now the Bobcats are better than the Knicks and that says a lot.
