Week 2 Report Card Grades for Every Key NY Knicks Player
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports
Mike Woodson has not had much to smile about through the first two weeks of the season.

The New York Knicks' 2013-14 season has not started according to plan. Mike Woodson's team has exhibited poor spacing and ball movement on offense, while putting forth minimal effort on defense. And New York’s second-most valuable player, Tyson Chandler, went down with a broken fibula.

The low point came on Sunday, Nov. 10, at Madison Square Garden when Knicks fans booed the home team and chanted "Fire Woodson" during a 120-89 drubbing at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs.

Woodson has vacillated between a smaller starting lineup featuring two point guards and Carmelo Anthony at the 4, and playing a traditional shooting guard, with Andrea Bargnani at power forward. Minutes restrictions on Amar'e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin, along with the injury to Chandler and suspension of J.R. Smith, have made it difficult for individuals to find a rhythm and develop chemistry as a unit.

Some players have struggled more than others, both in terms of effort and efficiency. The Knicks will have to drastically improve their production as individuals and a team in order to compete for a championship.
