ESPN sat Carmelo Anthony down with Hannah Storm for one of their "let's sit in chairs in front of out-of-focus backdrops and really get to the bottom of things, guys" interviews. That link includes video of (part of) their exchange. Melo was asked the following question:

"Would you like to see Mike Woodson be the coach beyond this season? Is he the best man for the Knicks?"

And he answered:

"Absolutely. 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."

Even Melo! So, that's a thing. Right now, I can't even fathom a future beyond the upcoming playoffs, but I'm happy to hear that Melo likes his coach, and I imagine you'd hear a similar vote of confidence from most of the Knicks. Their performance-- and especially their resilience-- since Woodson became coach certainly suggests that they're responding well to their new leader.

So, that's out there. Take it as you please.

Update: A thing from Adam Zagoria:
