Photos: The many faces of Mike Woodson
On Monday, the New York Knicks fired head coach Mike Woodson after a disastrous season in which the team managed to miss the playoffs in the depleted Eastern Conference.
While we don't know what kind of face Woodson made in reaction to his dismissal, handed down by team president Phil Jackson, we are well-versed with the spectrum of facial expressions the head coach is capable of. And when you're coaching an NBA team in the biggest media market with the second-highest payroll and a roster littered with head-scratchers (J.R. Smith, Ray Felton, to name a few), you're likely to run through the full gambit of emotions during a campaign as dismal as the Knicks'.
Without further ado, here's a roundup of the many (exasperated) faces made by Mike Woodson during the 2013-14 season, his final run as a Knick, courtesy of the outstanding photographers at Getty Images:
