Is Woodson your long term replacement, or are they going to find another coach once this season is over?
The Knicks' plans...or should I say Dolan's plans...after the season are the following:
Plan A: Try to sign Phil Jackson if health permits.
Plan B: Try to sign Phil Jackson if health permits.
Plan C: Try to sign Phil Jackson if health permits.
Plan W: Keep Woodson if the team plays well the rest of the season, which I think is what will happen actually.
One thing to keep in mind here: Woodson, like Phil, is an ex-Knick & has already quoted the late Red Holzman, whom Jackson idolized & whom Woodson played for a little. I'm not so sure that Jackson will try to step on the toes of someone like Woodson to get the job.

Philly still living off the rep they were starting to get at the beginning of the year, that's the only reason they get any cred, and that was built against rubbish competition as well. In the top half of the teams in the league yes, a top 10 team? no.
Why would they take time to practice and scout him specifically if he weren't a good player?
Maybe he was succeeding because nobody had the time to give him much of a look due to lack of prep time this season has? It doesn't necessarily mean he's good, he's a dime a dozen player really. Just catching people off guard. But with no time to prepare for now he has the advantage. Or did.
