Now Commenting On:

Knicks coach Mike Woodson declined comment on an story that owner Jim Dolan told the players the coach was safe and no trades would be made.

"I'm not here to discuss in-house matters," he said before the Knicks lost to the Toronto Raptors, 95-83, to fall to 9-20.

Woodson has been on the hot seat because of the team's disastrous start, but has long insisted he hasn't played with a full complement of healthy players and wants the chance to do so.

Meantime, Metta World Peace declared himself an "alien" when asked about Woodson's status.

"I'm an alien, I wasn't there," World Peace said when asked about the Dolan guarantee.

"My focus is on winning championships," he added. "I don’t focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships. That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta. It is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind."
