With all of the problems the New York Knicks have had this season, it’s almost like clockwork that head coach Mike Woodson‘s job is in danger every week or two.

To date, James Dolan and Steve Mills have done nothing to address the coaching situation for the underachieving Knicks, but that could change very soon.

Woodson has been on the hot seat for most of the season, but that seat cooled down a little bit after Dolan gave Woodson a second vote of confidence during the season, but according to the latest report, following perhaps the Knicks most disappointing loss of the season to the Milwaukee Bucks, Woodson could be out as soon as the February 20 NBA Trade Deadline.

Per Steve Popper from The Record: 

Woodson’s words not encouraging for the team’s fading chances and in particular, the usually positive Stoudemire’s words not encouraging for Woodson, whom one league source said could be removed before the Feb. 20 trade deadline.

Firing Woodson is likely long overdue, but the reality of the situation is that it doesn’t solve much in the bigger scheme of things.

No matter who Dolan tabs as the Knicks head coach will have similar struggles with the way the current roster is assembled.

If Dolan is committed to removing Woodson, something that should have been done a long time ago, he should also be committed to blowing this team up and seriously planning for the future, something I examined yesterday.

Either way though, while the wins haven’t been coming in bunches for this Knicks team, the drama has certainly come in bunches.
