    Mike Woodson may make another lineup change before Tuesday’s game at Detroit. The Knicks (3-6) have used four different starting lineups in the first six games. “I gotta go back and re-evaluate things,” Woodson said. “I’m going to continue to shuffle and do things that I think are right by our team to try to find the right combinations to win.”That may mean removing J.R. Smith from the starting lineup. The reigning Sixth Man winner has started the past two games for the Knicks, including struggling mightily on Saturday, finishing 3-for-18 from the field.

      check out this article from MARCH of 2013. Replacing some players with current ones, it sounds like the same exact concerns we have this year! Woodson has not adapted at all even with an entire off-season to figure out what happened last season. even the comments are of the same nature. “why isnt copeland playing.” this year “why is Aldrich glued to the bench”
