  1. Awesome read! Do you think Mike Woodson should shuffle the rotation for the rest of the series?

    • @worldmaniaoo we thank you for the compliment. That might be interesting to see things mixed up, though coaches are known not too-especially since Woodson didn’t do anything for Game 2 or 3. Who do you think should be the starters for the next game?

      • Ya, I like your site! I think Copeland and Novak should get some time to contribute. JR should sit for a bit, but not too long just to get his confidence back. Do you think the series is still win-able for the Knicks?

      • @worldmaniaoo JR has been cold for a while surprised to see he is starting still. We can never understand why coaches stick to things when they are not working. Here is hoping the team can get a victory soon.
