TNT Draws High Marks For Pacers-Knicks Game 5 On A Competitive Night Of Television
Published May 17, 2013
SORRY, GOTTA GO: In N.Y., Bob Raissman reported ESPN Radio 98.7 N.Y. Wednesday pulled Knicks coach Mike Woodson "from speaking during his regular segment" on the station, creating a "needless controversy." Woodson was taking some heat in the media following Game 4 of the Pacers series, and taking him off his radio spot "made the situation worse." It "created another story that again made the organization look paranoid." It is "tremendously telling" that the team "does not trust Woodson enough to allow him to participate in a radio segment he has been doing the entire season." Knicks execs "knew the station had been promoting Woodson's appearance all morning long and still would not allow the coach to fulfill a commitment, which he is paid (very well) for" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 5/16).
