Mike Woodson Rumors
“Kevin Garnett is hired in here as a consultant, so I’m sure he’ll be in and out when it presents itself for him to work with our guys,” said assistant coach Mike Woodson. “I think when he’s here, it’s important for our bigs to take advantage of him being out here on the floor, because he brings so much to the table and has so much to offer for the game of basketball.”
“I’m happy he’s part of our family now,” Woodson said. “He’s always been part of Doc’s family, and I just think as we move forward it’s going to help DJ a lot. I mean, all of our bigs. KG is going to be a Hall of Famer one day and I think all the experience that he’s put out on the basketball floor, if these guys are willing to listen and learn, they will benefit in the long run.”

Why would ANYONE punch a 6’11” NBA superstar in the face during a playoff game??? That’s the question we posed to Clippers assistant coach Mike Woodson at LAX Tuesday — referring to the chin check he gave DeAndre Jordan back in April.
Don’t worry, it’s not like he socked DeAndre’s lights out — Woodson explains it was more like a love tap to wake DJ up and “get him going.” You gotta watch the clip … Woodson’s awesome — and explains the chin check ain’t (and should NOT be) standard operating procedure with coaches.
Vogel’s job has been said to be in jeopardy in past years. He would seem a perfect fit if front-runner Kurt Rambis agrees to slide over as the offensive coordinator of the triangle. According to sources, Knicks owner James Dolan felt Vogel outcoached Mike Woodson during the Knicks’ seminal six-game playoff defeat to the Pacers in 2013. The Knicks carried a 54-28 record into the second-round series before being upset – the pivotal moment coming when Carmelo Anthony was blocked at the rim by Roy Hibbert late in the fourth quarter of Game 6.
