Mike Woodson for Coach of the Year!

As you know, the Knicks are off to their best start since the 1993-94 season, and what's doubly impressive about this is beating two teams that were in the Conference Finals in Miami and San Antonio. What makes it even MORE impressive however is that the Knicks are running a very good offense to go with their elite defense from last season.

Mike Woodson gained a reputation as a defensive-minded coach because his principal offensive set was letting Joe Johnson hold the ball. We saw shades of this when he took over from Mike D'Antoni last season, when the offense was pretty much Carmelo Anthony holding the ball. Nonetheless, the Knicks seem to have brought a far more creative offense in, and although I think Jason Kidd has a bigger role in this than one would give credit, the fact that Woodson was flexible enough to incorporate this offense (which is a slight variation on the 2011 Mavericks) and get Melo to play more in the post where he's a mismatch (continuing a theme from last season) has resulted in the Knicks leading the entire league. If this continues and the Knicks take a decisive lead in the Atlantic Division (and considering everyone else in the division is struggling) Woodson can win the Coach of the Year nod.

Or you could have the new uniforms take the credit. Your call.
