Amar’e Stoudemire, Mike Woodson At Odds Over Amar’e Knee
The Knicks have become the Jets of the NBA, we just have to figure out who their Tim Tebow is.
After another embarassing loss to the Wizards, the Knicks really seem to be unraveling. Mike Woodson took a shot at Carmelo Anthony while trying to explain why he didn’t call timeout after Bradley Beal hit the go ahead basket for Washington.
“I’m going to be honest,’’ Woodson said. “I’ve let games go like that. In Atlanta, I let a couple of games where I didn’t call a timeout because they weren’t set. We threw it in and Joe Johnson was able to dribble down and hit a winning shot. Was I thinking that at the time? Well, when Beno [Udrih] stepped out and Melo begged for it and he threw it to him, I didn’t stop the play. I let it go on. I should’ve called a timeout, taking it out of their hands and advance the basketball [to halfcourt], but I didn’t.’’
Woodson is now at odds with Amare’ Stoudemire over the status of his knee, and why he was shut down according to the New York Post.
Woodson said Amar’e Stoudemire will be out “a while’’ because of knee swelling. Stoudemire denied that update and tweeted he’s not even injured and his “knees feel great.’’
Reports say Stoudemire is angry about speculation that he may have to have another knee surgery. Some say the Tweet was mereley an act of defiance.
