Mike Woodson gets my vote for the coach who's gotten the most out of his players.
The Knicks weren't supposed to be this good. They were supposed to be old, selfish and fragile.
Instead we've come to learn that they're wise, sharing and deep.
New York is making two more three-pointers a game than any team in the league, and it's not because it has the best shooters. Woodson's offense is predicated on creating spacing and spreading the floor.
The Knicks are making threes because they're constantly open. Between pick-and-rolls, drive-and-dishes, ball-reversals and Carmelo Anthony, whose ability to draw double-teams opens scoring opportunities for others, the Knicks offense has remained as balanced and fluid as any team's in the NBA.
And the most important stat of all for the Knicks is that they lead the NBA in least amount of turnovers.
With Tyson Chandler playing the best two-way basketball of his career, Melo producing at an MVP level and the rest of the boys playing smart, disciplined basketball, Woodson has this team in the best position it's been in since 1999.
