If Mike Woodson seems overjoyed these days, he should. There’s a lot to smile about. His team has a three-game winning streak going into Thursday’s contest against stumbling Cleveland at the Garden. And Carmelo Anthony’s wife says she believes the free agent-to-be “definitely” will stay with the Knicks.
“I love it. I’ve been saying the same thing. I think he’s going to stay,” Woodson said Wednesday during his weekly spot on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. “I want him to stay. I think New York fans, they need him here.”
“These past three years the way he’s played has been tremendous,” Woodson said. “If he ends his career here, I think he won’t ever look back and say ‘I should have’ or ‘I could have.” I don’t think that’s ever been an issue. I think Melo was built for New York. I hope he stays here as well.”
