A brief reminder where Mike Woodson doesn't make his money.

In the Mike Woodson era, the Atlanta Hawks have lost 11 playoff games. The average margin of defeat in those losses was over twenty-two points a game. Twenty-two! That is borderline unsportsmanlike by the other team. And since I am one who believed a healthy Hawks team could have stolen at least a game from the Cavs, I will let Woody off the hook for those four losses. Oh wait, that pushes the margin to over twenty-five points a contest. You may not have known this, but that Cavs series was an example of Mike Woodson's coaching skills keeping it close.

Piling on? Over simplifying? A little mean to point out in September? Yes, yes, and probably.

Excusable for a coach? No.
