Give credit where it's due: The Knicks are listening to Mike Woodson, and he's thriving in a situation where many thought he'd have no chance to do so.
He's preaching accountability, and it seems to be working, as everyone appears to be very receptive to his message in the early part of his tenure as head coach.
He's got strong ideas and beliefs as to what he wants to do on both ends of the court, and it's helping the Knicks form a solid identity when many thought this New York club simply didn't have one.
It's been a roller-coaster season for the Knicks, but Woodson has the team undoubtedly trending in the right direction.
