The season is over, time to judge the regular season. Grades for all 30 teams. East: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas… and West: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Ian Begley

Carmelo says he'd have no problem backing Mike Woodson if he's asked his opinion on Woodson's future. #Knicks

Rigas Dardalis

Reyes with 2/2 threes, probably fired up by coach Bartzokas comment #Euroleague #Playoffs

Chris Herring

Carmelo called Woodson "almost a father figure." Said he's had some of his best playing yrs under him.

Chris Herring

Carmelo says if it came down to the Knicks asking him whether they should keep Woodson, he'd back Woodson as a coach.

Rigas Dardalis

Two 3ps in row for Reyes!!! That's a win signal for Madridistas!

Ian Begley

Carmelo says this has been by far the most difficult season in his 11-year career. #Knicks

Josh Newman

Nothing Carmelo Anthony is saying right now will make fans feel good

I asked Hill what his ideal role is in the NBA. In sum: 25-27 mpg at PF, though he said he's happy playing "any position."

Frank Isola

Carmelo: "At this point in my career I'm not concerned about the money." Knicks can offer more than any other team: five years, $129 million

Dan McCarney

Dug the Billy Ocean/Huey Lewis/Lover Boy rotation at Bombay last night. It was like being at the AT&T Center all over again.

John R. Finger

Phillies made one out that inning. Oh, but baseball …

Tim Bontemps

I don't often listen to sports talk radio these days, but can't turn down listening to pals @Brian Windhorst and @RyanRuocco this afternoon.

Al Iannazzone

Melo said not being in the playoffs is "embarrassing" to him.

Dan McCarney

Have to wish my man Kaleb Canales, Mavs assistant, good luck. We've both come a long way from games at Martin High School in Laredo.

Chris Herring

Carmelo suggests that he's considered waiting until next year to opt out. But thinks its better to be a free agent now instead of waiting

Rigas Dardalis

The problem in "4" for @olympiacosbc is huge cause Printezis, Petway & Dunston have two fouls. But Bartzokas played "4" when he was young...

Ohm Youngmisuk

Carmelo says he's not at a point in his career where he wants to rebuild.

Janis Carr

As much as he liked him, Hill said Kama could be "a butthole some times." Said he shared Kaman's frustrations.

Dave McMenamin

Jordan Hill on the difference between him and Kaman dealing w/ not playing much: "Chris was just a butthole sometimes"

Mike Trudell

Jordan Hill, mostly facetiously, on Chris Kaman: "Chris is just a butthole sometimes." The two had some interesting locker room banter.

Kamenetzky Brothers

"Chris is just a butthole, sometimes." J. Hill on Kaman in what very well might be the Quote of Exit Interviews, 2014. BK

Kamenetzky Brothers

Hill trying very hard not to say anything controversial regarding Mike D'Antoni. BK

Carmelo: "for me I just feel like I'm playing my best basketball." Says his decision will take time to make. Won't happen overnight.

Chris Herring

Melo, on his value as he turns 30: "For me, I feel like Im just starting to play my best basketball." Reminds us that he's only 29 years old

Dave McMenamin

Jordan Hill sounds like he's out of here. He says he wouldn't mind coming back, but seems like he's looking forward to free agency options

Melo says he can't "afford another losing season."

Mike Trudell

Hill on if he thinks he'll be back in Los Angeles: "It's tough to say right now." He'll certainly explore free agency.

Chris Herring

Carmelo said he began rehabbing his injured shooting shoulder yesterday

Janis Carr

Hill said he wouldnt mind coming back here... Be back? "tough to say right now. Just have to see how season pans out.:

On possibility of having to go through another losing season before Knicks might be able to win and wait, Melo says he just went through it

Michael Scotto

Carmelo Anthony on free agency: "I want to come back. I also want to win."#Melo

Mike Trudell

Fatigue was an issue when he got big minutes, but Hill feels: "When I'm out there, I feel invincible, that I can overcome anything."

Ryan Wolstat

Masai meeting with media horde: "We have to build a brand that people want to see. When we get good enough, people will watch... eventually"
