07:34 AM ET 02.10 | Jeff Van Gundy knows a thing or tow about the pressure of coaching a team in Big Apple. As a fan of New York sports and an NBA analyst for ESPN, Van Gundy's been following Mike Woodson's situation in New York very closely. He's been extremely supportive of Woodson amid all of the widespread media speculation over his job. Van Gundy was asked on ESPN Radio's "The Ian O'Connor Show" if he had any advice for Woodson. His message was simple: ignore the outside noise. "Just do your job and don't feel the need to update the media on your feelings because it doesn't matter," Van Gundy said. "Just do your job. You know how to coach and you've done it very well there. I wouldn't apologize to anyone if I was him because I think he's handled himself very, very well in a difficult situation."

Van Gundy is towing the line. Knicks went from easy to coach from last year to uncoachable this year.

What are the Knicks doing?
Is anyone in the he front office actually watching the games?
Something needs to be changed. Whether its a big move or a couple small moves....but there is zero consistency

Watch Melo get traded before trade deadline for Griffin or maybe Rudy Gay and draft pick.

Melo has a no trade clause doesn't he? I think he does anyway. Can anyone confirm one way or the other?

From what I was able to find the only current NBAers w/ a no trade clause are Kobe, Duncan, Dirk & KG. Although I thought KG didn't have a no trade clause.

KG to NY would give Knick fans a heart attack.

KG already waived his no trade clause to go to Brooklyn.
