Larry Brown: 'New York Knicks have treated Mike Woodson unfairly'

Larry Brown criticises former employers the New York Knicks for their treatment of head coach Mike Woodson.

Former New York Knicks coach Larry Brown has claimed that the franchise have treated Mike Woodson unfairly at times this season.

The current head coach has had a difficult campaign as the Knicks have desperately searched for the form to secure a playoff spot, and Brown believes that there should have been more support for the man in charge.

"He's out on the limb and that's not fair," Brown told SiriusXM. "For a guy that really turned that franchise around and made people proud of the way they played, I don't think he's been treated fairly, and that really bothers me.

"He did a lot for that team, and that's unfortunate. I don't think you treat people like that. And in the long run there is bad karma when you do that."

The Knicks, whose record is 33-45 this season, are currently one place outside the playoff places in the Eastern Conference.
