Ex-Knicks Coach Defends Carmelo Anthony ‘He Was Great For Me’
Phil’s been criticizing Anthony since he was hired as the Knicks President — and made it clear he wants to trade Melo out of NYC as soon as possible.
We got former Knicks coach Mike Woodson — who was fired by Phil back in ’14 — and asked what he thought of the Melo/Jackson feud … and Mike took a side.
“I love Carmelo Anthony, that’s all I’m gonna say,” Woodson told us … adding, “He was great for me.”
Seems clear Woodson — now an assistant with the Clippers — is riding with his ‘Melo, and why not? The two men were 109-79 together and made the playoffs twice, something the Knicks haven’t done since.
And when we say “since” … we mean since Phil Jackson was hired.
Just sayin’ …
