Thus far this NBA season New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has been under the microscope and the recent criticism of his defensive scheme by C Tyson Chandler didn't help.  Despite Chandler back peddling from his comments after meeting with Woodson, it's obvious that some of the players aren't happy.  Recently Woodson spoke of the current state of the situation.  

“I talk about it. I don’t think it’s something you air in the paper,” Woodson said. “You got issues, you hold your coach and your teammates accountable and you air it out amongst yourself…...To me, winning teams develop chemistry and we just haven’t been able to do that this season,”

“I’ve been around this thing a long time. Players get upset. Coaches get upset, but at the end of the day I don’t feed much into that. If they want to lash out at me, that’s fine. I’m not a coach that takes things personally…..I’m not kicking Tyson to the curb. I’m not going to kick Melo or anybody to the curb, because at the end of the day we’re all in this foxhole together and we’ve got to figure it out.”
