As I watched the game Barkely made some good points. The Knicks are better when the ball is moving. A lot of posters mad this point here a while back. Melo slows things down and stagnates the offense. There needs to be a little give and take. Knicks can't play ISO ball for every possession.
I think Woodson is doing his best to keep the team together. He may be afraid to tell Melo the truth, which is he needs to alter his game for the sake of the team. He may be taking the path of least resistance to keep the players on his side. If Melo gets pissy he'll quit on Woody the way he quit on D'Antoni. Not saying this path of least resistance theory is right, just an observation.
