Woodson: Knicks Effort ‘Unacceptable’
Well, then. So this is the kind of effort we see from the Knicks when they clinch a spot in the 16-team NBA playoff tournament, when they qualify for the right to play either Chicago or Miami, when they achieve the bare minimum of their seasonal goals.
Perish to think what will happen if they should ever win their first playoff game since 2001. Or their first playoff series since 2000. What will we get then? Champagne? Parades? Holidays? Because this was the thing that was impossible to escape if you grinded your way through all 48 minutes of this indifferent 98-90 loss to the 21-41 Cavaliers:
This is a team that sure acts like it’s accomplished something.
“Disappointing,” was the word that Carmelo Anthony used but his coach, Mike Woodson, opted for a more appropriate adjective.
“Unacceptable,” Woodson said. “Completely unacceptable.”
