Woodson Rips Knicks for All-Black Stunt
A fuming Mike Woodson said he’s upset his players wore all black to Wednesday night’s potential close-out game vs. the Celtics, reprimanding them before Thursday’s practice.
Woodson said he didn’t realize it until he read about it in this morning’s newspapers and said he would’ve “absolutely’’ put a stop to it had he known.
Spurred by Kenyon Martin, the players wore black as if they were attending the Celtics funeral. Instead, the Celtics rose from the dead in a 92-86 Game 5 Garden victory, sending the series to Boston for Game 6 on Friday night.
“I’m a little upset about that,’’ Woodson said. “I’ve addressed that. We’re a new team. A lot of these guys have been in league but this team hasn’t been assembled that long for the playoffs. Things like that got to be kept outside the game. Just concentrate on playing basketball.’’
