Extend Woodson?


I hate to agree with the Post's Marc Berman, but I think the Knicks should extend Woodson's contract -- let's say for two more seasons.

I have to beleive this roster will remain fairly intact for next season, and the players are responding nicely to Woodson's tactics and messages. Our roster next year will include Anthony, Amare, Chandler, Shumpert, and Douglas for certain; Lin in all likelihood; one of either Smith or Fields; and probably one of Jeffries or Novak.

It would be nice to have some stability going into next season, so coaching stability along with roster stability seems to make the most sense. I guess we will have to see how the next eight games go, but it's hard to argue with the success Woodson has seen thus far. If the team continues along this path, I'm thinking he's earned the right to shed the "interim" from his job title.

Also, the alternatives aren't all the fabulous. I think Phil Jackson is a pipe dream; I can't imagine him taking the job. I want no part of Calipari. Stan Van Gundy would be tempting, but I'm not sure he's much different in philosophy from Woodson, and he seems to grate on his star players to some extent. (Granted, Shaq and Howard are prima donnas and no coach would be very good in their eyes.)

Anyway, let's have some stability for a change and extend Woodson. What do you all think?
