Mike Woodson on Knicks season: "A disaster"

The New York Knicks have not had a great season so far by any stretch of the imagination.

And today their head coach Mike Woodson gave a brutal assessment of how it has gone so far:

"It's been kind of a disaster from a coaching standpoint in trying to get players to complete and play at a high level," he told ESPN radio.

The Knicks record currently stands at 19-30 and they find themselves outside of the eight playoff spots in the Eastern conference.

And after a 94-90 to the Portland Trail Blazers last night at the Garden they are on a 3 game losing streak.

A situation that is likely to cause frustration for any coach - and it seems Woodson is less than impressed with what he has seen so far from his roster.

While Carmelo Anthony continues to perform admirably in another All-Star season for the individual, his teammates have struggled.

J.R. Smith has been dogged by on court, and off court incidents, while others have simply failed to play with the high intensity and skill level Knicks fans are used to seeing.

Woodson, who has been in charge since 2012, must be hoping for a sharp turnaround in form as he prepares his team to welcome fellow strugglers the Denver Nuggets tomorrow.
