Former Knicks coach Larry Brown believes Mike Woodson hasn’t been “treated fairly” by the organization this season, adding that Phil Jackson should have taken over as coach to allow the lame-duck Woodson to leave the team “graciously.” “I’m sick about what’s happening with Michael (Woodson),” Brown said Monday morning on NBA Radio on SiriusXM. “The whole thing about the Knicks, I want the Knicks to be great, because the NBA needs it badly. They have the best fans. “(But) the way they’ve treated Mike Woodson, I think he went 15-5 (actually 18-6) when he took over that team two years ago. And then last year they won 54 games. I think from 2001 they might’ve won one playoff series. He’s done a remarkable job. They’ve had terrible injuries. They lost a GM (Glen Grunwald) that I thought did a great job. And then they didn’t bring any older guys. When you lose Jason Kidd and Kurt Thomas and Rasheed Wallace, you lost your locker room.
