Good day! The Knicks are coming off a very fun and pretty surprising blowout of the Nuggets on Friday. Now they have to play the Thunder in Oklahoma City in a matinee on ABC. Not much in the way of updates to share besides the usual Mike Woodson firing question deflections. One rotational/strategic thing:
Woodson says Shumpert will start out guarding Durant.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) February 9, 2014
And this, apparently Woodson's response to someone asking what he'd say to his players if he got fired:
Woodson, on talk of him being fired: "Woodson's a big boy who's been around the block a few times. It's part of the business if it happens."— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) February 9, 2014
"Woodson's a big boy who's been around the block a few times." Woooooooo, I got a good laugh out of that one.
So, uh, good luck, Knicks! This is your thread. This is Welcome to Loud City. Tip-off is at 1 on ABC.
