Mike Woodson has been fired as head coach of the NY Knicks, along with the rest of the Knicks coaching staff. I can’t say that I’m surprised that this is Phil Jackson’s first move in the NY Knicks front office, but I can’t say that I’m as ecstatic as I really should be either. You can’t look me in the face and tell me that Steve Kerr (the man who’s a front-runner for the position) is a better option than Mike Woodson–the man has never coached a day in his life.
Don’t give me that “veteran PGs are head coaches in their own right” bullsh*t. Unlike Jason Kidd and Mark Jackson, Steve Kerr isn’t a Hall of Famer. He’s got both experience and rings, but that’s not really going to cut it in a must-win place like New York City.
Am I just a little upset that I won’t get to see Mike Woodson’s finely-groomed beard next winter? Absolutely. So let’s look back at the shiny bald man who caused us so many feelings this past season.
I’m still pretty upset I can’t bring you another round of #GIFsTape this year.
