NBA: Mike Woodson Tired Of Knicks Effort, Gives Team Curfew!

Mike Woodson knows his ass is on the line right now as coach of the Knicks and he is doing all he can to protect it. The last couple times the team had a game at noon they were completely destroyed. You can think what you want, but I am sure part of that had to do with players out chilling the night before and not focused on the task at hand early the next day. Because of that, with another game scheduled for noon tomorrow, every member of the Knicks is staying in a hotel somewhere close by and every player must be in their rooms by 10pm. Sounds crazy to give grown men curfews, but it might be what they need. Woodson told the New York Daily News, “Yeah, we’ve had those troubles and you know, we’re going to all get together tonight and huddle together. I’m not going to let them hang out. We’re going to all get together, ourselves, as a team.”
