Iman Shumpert called the Knicks’ season a failure earlier this week.

Head coach Mike Woodson disagrees.

He offered a very different definition of the Knicks’ season on Tuesday.

“Based on where we started and how we assembled our team, this was to me a wonderful season,” Woodson said. “It was a major step in the right direction, to win our division, to secure the second seed, when people didn’t think we could do none of those things.

“Some of our goals were met, so all wasn’t bad. I think we made a major step. I think we were able to win some of our fan base back and to me that’s what was more important.”
