Mike Woodson stays strong in his belief that he is the right guy for the job to turn the New York Knicks season around.
In a terrible season for the Knicks where the fans are planning to protest the management of the franchise, the head coach of the team has received a lot of heat for the tumultuous campaign.
Woodson was interviewed Wednesday morning before the contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves, this is what he had to say: "My thought process will never change in terms of me being the coach here, I still think I was the guy for the job. I still think I am the guy for the job and I'm going to continue to work in that area."
The Knicks current record is a dismal 21-40 and are on a current seven game skid in the East, the losing streak leaves them languishing in 11th place in the Conference with only 21 games remaining in the season.
There has been a lot of speculation regarding Woodson's job status after the lofty expectations the Knicks have failed to meet this season.
Woodson responds to accusations that he has lost the backing of his team in New York: "I don't think they're tuning me out, They're still listening. We're just not getting it done on the basketball floor, and that's the frustrating part about it."
Whatever happens for the rest of the season for the Knicks, it seems that the fans who pay a lot of money to watch the team in Madison Square Gardens have already decided who's to blame and thats the owner James Dolan.
With Carmelo Anthony also approaching the end of his contract and the impeding free agency period, Knicks fans are currently reading every piece of team news through the gaps in their fingers.
