Prior to last night's Knicks/Celticsplayoff game, Kenyon Martin encouraged his Knicks teammates to wear black to Madison Square Garden. The thought was that the Knicks were going to hold a "funeral" for the Celtics and knock them out of the playoffs. Only one problem: It looked cool before the game, but it made them look like complete jackasses after it since they ended up losing. And there was also one tiny thing that they forgot to do before they went through with their master plan. They forgot to inform their head coach Mike Woodson.

"I didn't know about about it until this morning," he said earlier today. "I'm not going to get into all that. I made reference to the guys, we need to stay out of the papers and just concentrate on playing. That's not important, what you wear. It doesn't have anything to do with how you play on the basketball court. I addressed it with our players. The game is played on the floor and that's where it should be played."

In other words, don't expect the black suits, shirts, and slacks to be back for Game 6 tomorrow night. That idea is officially dead.
