Mike Woodson on Knicks season: 'I didn't get it done'

As the 2013-2014 New York Knicks season winds down without a playoff appearance -- a year after the team won 54 games and a division title -- Knicks head coach Mike Woodson is reflecting on what went wrong for the team this year.

In a radio interview on Monday, he placed the blame on himself.

Woodson has guided his team to a 35-45 record this season and the Knicks were eliminated from playoff contention over the weekend. This offseason may bring about change, as star forward Carmelo Anthony can opt-out of his deal and new team president Phil Jackson may want to get rid of Woodson and bring in his own coach to help lead the team. No decision has been made about Woodson's future.

"I mean, you can point the fingers in a lot of directions. And I'm not going to sit here and air that out. I mean, at the end of the day I'm the coach and I didn't get it done. It's just that simple," Woodson said on ESPN Radio. "There's a lot of factors that came behind it, but you can't sit here and complain about it now. We didn't get it done. Being the coach, I just apologize to the fans."

Anthony, who is having one of his more outstanding seasons, said Woodson is not solely to blame for the team's failures this season.

"We all are part of that," Anthony said. "As a coach he's going to say that. He's supposed to say that. I would say the same thing. I would put it on my shoulders and say the same thing. We all played a part of this year.
