Opening Tip: How to fix the Knicks?

Mike Woodson called the Knicks' performance "unacceptable" and said the team lacked pride after their 31-point loss to San Antonio.

For the most part, his players agreed.

Carmelo Anthony said Sunday's game was "embarrassing." Last week, Anthony questioned the Knicks' effort in a players-only meeting after the loss to Charlotte.

That's a pretty damning indictment for a team that came into the season with championship aspirations. It's even worse when you think about the fact that the Knicks are six games into an 82-game season.

But things certainly don't look good so far for New York.

Last season, they raced out to a 6-0 start. This year, they're 2-4 after six games. They fell to 1-3 at home with Sunday's loss. Last year, they didn't lose their third home game until Jan. 1.

So the question now becomes: how do the Knicks fix this?

A) Should Woodson change the Knicks' starting lineup?

B) Should the Knicks make a trade to shake things up?

C) Or should the team make a coaching change?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

UP NOW: The Knicks looked listless on Sunday in a 31-point loss to the Spurs.

Anthony took just 10 shots in the game and said the Knicks were outplayed by the defeding Western Conference champion Spurs.

J.R. Smith's return to the lineup didn't provide the lift the Knicks had hoped for.

For what it's worth, Metta World Peace still thinks the Knicks have what it takes to win a title.

WHAT'S NEXT: The Knicks will practice Monday to prepare for Wednesday's game against the Hawks. Ohm Youngmisuk will be at practice for us.
