Chris Herring

Amare says he realizes that Woodson is under fire, but that he's learned more defensively under Woodson than any coach he's had.

Chris Herring

Woodson declined comment yesterday on whether he'd be involved in exit meetings. Now sounds as if he wasn't involved today.

Chris Herring

Amare suggests that Woodson wasnt involved in exit interviews today -- just spoke w Phil Jackson and GM Steve Mills.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo Anthony sounded absolutely tormented about not being in the playoffs. Said he's been losing sleep.

Jonah Ballow

"For me, I feel like I'm just starting to play my best basketball" -- @Carmelo Anthony at #Knicks exit interview

Jonah Ballow

"It's motivating to me, it's inspiring to me" @Carmelo Anthony on @Amare Stoudemire's resurgence this season #Knicks

Frank Isola

For you hat-ologists, this was Carmelo the day after last season while getting the John Gotti treatment from a friend http://t.co/XCng6IYTmh

Steve Popper

Goth Melo: The messed up thing is we dug ourselves a huge grave coming into the season, losing games that come back to haunt us right now.

Steve Popper

Melo is brilliant at covering every side: I want to come back. But I also want to win.

Jonah Ballow

.@Carmelo Anthony referred to Mike Woodson as a "father figure" & "friend" & "I have nothing bad to say about Mike Woodson" #Knicks

Chris Herring

Carmelo's red hat also said "NY" right across the front of it, for what it's worth.

Frank Isola

This could be Carmelo's last press conference as a Knick. (I'm making it dramatic since we all know he'll be back). http://t.co/Cn6x9YKysi

Jonah Ballow

.@Carmelo Anthony said he started the rehab process on his shoulder (torn labrum) yesterday. #Knicks

Frank Isola

Carmelo was wearing a red baseball cap as he spoke with reporters.....Bulls red if you will.

Steve Popper

Melo said if the plan is to build for 2015 he can't be a part of another losing season.

Frank Isola

Carmelo was getting choked up as he talked about not making the playoffs and about what Mike Woodson means to him. Very emotional.

Steve Popper

Melo said he would support Woodson coming back to Knicks. Of course, that doesn't mean he would be playing for him.

Steve Popper

Melo said he's financially stable - "At this point in my career it’s about winning. Nothing else even matters."

Jonah Ballow

.@Carmelo Anthony did say he wants to come back be also said he wants to win. He added that he'll take time to evaluate FA over summer.

Al Iannazzone

Melo said he played some of the best ball of his career under Woodson, and spoke highly of him.

Scott Cacciola

If you're reading anything into Carmelo wearing a red hat, you are dumb.

Chris Herring

Carmelo, half-jokingly asked why he was wearing a red hat: "Red is my favorite color."

Al Iannazzone

if the Knicks asked Melo if he wants Woodson to return, he said, "I'd back him."

Ian Begley

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

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.

Ian Begley

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

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

Al Iannazzone

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

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

Ian Begley

Carmelo: "I'm not at the point in my career where I want to rebuild." #Knicks

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

Al Iannazzone

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

Chris Herring

Carmelo said he began rehabbing his injured shooting shoulder yesterday

Chris Herring

Melo says he doesn't know if he can endure 4 another yr. Says other situations may look better, but grass isn't always greener on other side

Frank Isola

Carmelo: "I don't know if I can afford another season of losing."

Jonah Ballow

"I want to come back. I want to come back." @Carmelo Anthony at #Knicks exit interview

Ian Begley

Carmelo: "I want to come back. I also want to win." #Knicks

Al Iannazzone

Melo on his future: "I want to come back. I want to come back. But I also want to win."

Frank Isola

Carmelo: "I want to come back...I also want to win."

Chris Herring

Carmelo: Phil Jackson's "knowledge and wisdom is something I could sit down and listen to all day long."

Chris Herring

Carmelo is the first Knick to speak with media following the exit interviews.

Knicks get the win and a vacation. Raptors get the No. 3 seed. m.ksl.com/index/story/si…

Brian Mahoney

Kidd should've been really clear about his intentions last night and shown up wearing a tie. But, Nets got their less intimidating path.

Chris Herring

NYK offense turned around after the Bargnani injury. Ranked 19th in NBA thru 1/23 before he got hurt; ranked 3rd in NBA after he got hurt.

Marc Berman

Expected to be fired, Woodson still states his case but won't say if he'll join Phil in exit meetings Thursday nyp.st/1j3U2EB

Chris Herring

Knicks finish ranked 24th in defense. Marks an NBA-high 8th time in the last 10 years they've fielded one of the league's worst 10 defenses.

Chris Herring

The big difference from 3 was the frequency. Knicks, particularly with Bargnani's midrange game, took far fewer 3-pt attempts this season.

Chris Herring

Knicks finished the year at 37.2% from 3-pt range as a team, 7th-best in NBA. Not that far off from last season, when they shot 37.6%.

Chris Herring

Bargnani missed the final 40 gms of the year. Hes now missed 122 gms in past 3 yrs -- 33 gms more than Stoudemire's missed in the same span.

Chris Herring

Knicks obviously made a push late in the season. But the Felton, Smith, Melo, Amare & Chandler lineup finished as a net negative this year.

Chris Herring

Im sure. MT @HowardTNY: Are u sure it was NYKs smallball, or was it that Bargnani was out of lineup? Looked good w/ Melo, Amare & Chandler.

Chris Herring

Pablo Prigioni finished 2nd in the NBA in 3PT% to Kyle Korver. Went from 39.6% last year to 46.4% this season.

Chris Herring

NYK's smallball lineup -- Felton, Prigioni, Shumpert, Melo & Chandler -- ranked as NBAs 13th-best among groups that played at least 100 mins

Chris Herring

NYKs best 5-man lineup, by net rating (100-mins minimum): Felton, Prigioni, Shumpert, Anthony & Chandler. Won by avg of 13.1 pts/100 plays.

Peter Vecsey

It's a shame nobody in NY will get to know what Mike Woodson is all about, either because they didn't try, or cause he keeps life on low-low

Scott Cacciola

To close out the Knicks' season, I'm going to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the West Side Highway for an hour because of course.

Chris Herring

Of players who saw at least 15 gms, Aldrich finished 2nd in NBA in total rebounding percentage, at 22.5%. Drummond led NBA, w/ 22.6%

Chris Herring

End-of-season stat observations: Of guys that played in 15 gms or more this season, Cole Aldrich led NBA in defensive rebounding percentage.

Asked JR about how he thought he might fit in a triangle offense. Mentioned that he played in it in Byron Scott's offense in NOLA

Chris Herring

Aldrich says he's really grown to like NY as a city over the few months he's been with the team. Will be a UFA

Steve Popper

Looks like no POSTGAME meeting for Woodson. Phil is in the car already as Woodson heads into press conference.

Chris Herring

Woodson, on Aldrich: "He's earned the right to be on somebody's ball club, I think." Aldrich is unrestricted free agent this summer.

Frank Isola

That's right, on a day it snowed in NYC the Knicks are trying to make it seem like their season ended in late June. Classic.

Frank Isola

Knicks just told the fans to enjoy the summer. Nice try fellas. It's still mid-April. Summer is a ways away.

Chris Herring

I wrote a column in December calling for his firing. MT @OhBoyItsZach: You writers seem to let Woodson off the hook because he's a nice guy.

Chris Herring

Knick players are autographing t-shirts on the court, then throwing them into the crowd.

Scott Cacciola

The Knicks closed their season by winning 16 of 21 games.

Chris Herring

Lowkey, if Toronto had still been playing for a specific seed, I would've accused them of tanking on that last play. What was that?

Alan Hahn

@squigglywhosan: @Alan Hahn the last thing this season needs is 5 more minutes.” <---

Brian Mahoney

We're getting our 3rd instant replay review in the last 2 minutes of a meaningless game. Bad Knicks seasons never, ever end.

Chris Herring

Knicks are going to end up with 37 wins -- exact same number as what ESPN's projection system had them at before start of the season.
