Mike Woodson has received plenty of blame for the New York Knicks' disappointing season. However, there have been several factors beyond the coach's control which contributed to New York's downfall. It is fair to ask whether Woodson has really done that poor of a job.
In order to answer that question, I examined every aspect of Woodson's coaching, from offensive and defensive schemes to how he dealt with his players and the media.
I kept in mind that a coach can only work with the talent that he is given and at times it was difficult to distinguish between the faults and limitations of the Knicks players and that of their coach. On certain occasions, I relied on the comments of the players themselves to distinguish between the two.
I also considered how well Woodson adjusted to his personnel and the adversity the team has faced. Lastly, I looked at what Woodson could have done differently to improve the team.
