NBA Rumors: Carmelo Anthony may endorse Mike Woodson if Knicks ask


The New York Knicks are in an offseason of wild transition when it comes to their team culture but the big question is which players and coaches will survive the transition and who will not. As it stands now, many believe the head coach Mike Woodson will be the first on pushed off the plank as his job has been in jeopardy all season long.

But while he may have not been able to escape the criticisms from fans and media members, he has a very powerful ally on his side when it comes to how much longer he’ll stay in New York. According to the impression Frank Isola put across from Carmelo Anthony’s press conference, it would appear that Woodson would get an endorsement from his star player should the Knicks come calling for his opinion.


You’d better believe the Knicks are going to come calling Carmelo too, because there’s not greater asset to the team at this omen than Carmelo Anthony. That doesn’t mean Woodson will stay, but it sounds like the relationship that Melo and Woodson had during the season may have been negatively overblown at times.
