Giglio: With Trade Deadline Passed, It’s On Mike Woodson Now

Woodson can’t just expect Melo to elevate his team on the floor. Anthony is a great player and a gifted scorer, but he doesn’t automatically make a team a champion. The coach needs to see — from film, numbers or gut — the writing on the wall.

Schmeelk: Knicks, Carmelo Fail Big Test Against Celtics

Schmeelk: Getting Back Amar’e Is A Good Thing, But It Must Be Handled Properly

It’s up to Woodson, Anthony, Chandler and Stoudemire to figure out a way to work together and make a great thing. The Knicks hold the best record in the Eastern Conference, and in a few weeks they will have more talent.
