The Knicks have no shortage of options to construct their crunch time lineup with.

Woodson has been especially loyal to 40-year-old vet Jason Kidd through the regular season, and everyone is familiar with the point guard's intangibles. But with his production diminishing severely in recent months, should Kidd remain on the floor in the final minutes?
