Eddie Johnson Rumors

But Johnson knows that New York can be tough on coaches. One of Johnson’s best friends is former Knicks coach Mike Woodson, who was fired by Phil Jackson one season after winning 54 games. “It’s not an easy place to coach,” Johnson said during a phone interview. “That’s the part that’s going to surprise Jeff. I don’t think anybody realizes how intense it is until you’re actually in it. I had an opportunity to experience it through Mike Woodson. I saw how he had to navigate it. It’s not easy. I’m going to pray for him.”
