Woodson's stupidest decision?

On April 25th, the Clippers came to town needing a win. At that time, the Knicks and 76ers had the same record. A loss could have allowed Philly to take over 7th seed, and a loss to Charlotte the following day would have assured us a 1st round series with Chicago instead of Miami.

Woodson decided to win both of those games, even though losing would have been very easy to do.

This could be the stupidest decision Woodson has ever made. It was SO stupid, that I think he should be fired for it.

Yes, it's true that Rose's season-ending injury on Saturday was not obviously foreseeable. But Rose was ALREADY injured on April 25, just coming back, very tentative and weak-looking. And it's well known that injuries beget more injuries if insufficiently rested. So yeah, I think it WAS knowable that Rose was likely to get reinjured.

But even if Rose's new injury was completely unpredictable, there was NO excuse for winning those last 2 regular season games. At best, with no reinjury, Rose would have been maybe 75% of his normal self. Everyone knew the Bulls were hobbled and the easier foe in the first round. Every commentator was saying it, and it was friggin obvious. And had we gotten into the later round(s), we could have improved with that time as Lin would have returned and both he and Amare could have integrated better and better back into the team.

Yet somehow, none of this found it's way into Woodson's brain. Somehow, he couldn't find a way to lose those last 2 COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS regular season games, when doing so would have helped us avoid the steamroller of a Heat team that we are facing now, at least until the ECF. He just couldn't think more than a few minutes into the future, apparently.

The price for this inexcusable stupidity will probably be a humiliating first round sweep. For this, Woodson deserves to lose his job. If you are CAPABLE of being this dense, you don't deserve to have a job.
