James White to start tonight, replacing Jason Kidd

New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has finally done it: he's benching Jason Kidd. Kidd hasn't been effective on the court lately, and Woodson is replacing him with James White. Kidd has started in 48 of the last 54 Knicks games, and in 11 February games managed to shoot only 19.6 percent from the field and averaged 2.2 assists per game.

There have been reports of Woodson contemplating taking Kidd out of the starting lineup since mid-February. On Feb. 14th, Woodson acknowledged the need for a change.

"Right now I don't like the way we're starting games," Woodson said. "I've got to go back to the drawing board and figure out what I'm going to do in terms of who starts."

Now he's finally made the decision to change the starting lineup, and the Knicks will use Raymond Felton, Iman Shumpert, James White, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler as starters now.
