If Carmelo Anthony has it his way, Mike Woodson will be back with the Knicks next season.”I’m a big supporter of what coach Woodson has done. His approach to the game, and what he gets out of all his players, even me. He holds everybody accountable and that’s what we need.” And to be honest I have never seen Melo that happy in any picture. Ever. That alone is reason enough to retain Woodson.


Considering Melo pushed Mike D’Antoni out of town and had a pretty bad relationship with George Karl in Denver, this is a revelation. Carmelo Anthony finally has a coach that he actually likes. In fairness to Melo, I love Woodson too.


The man is 16-6 since taking over the Knickerbockers and he has clinched a playoff berth. If he gets the Knicks a postseason win that will be one more win then anybody has seen in about 10 years. I’ll sign up for that. Also that beard, damn that is one of the best beards I have ever seen in basketball.
