Let him walk
Resign him and keep him long term
Resign him and trade him January 2013 with Amare
Killswitch engaged. Bye Lin.
TO THE LIN BANDWAGON FANS
Dont get me wrong though, lol,
I loved his jersey popping swag and confidence ......but him taking a dive since the trade made me lose some faith in him,
especially now with Melo I think it's gonna be hard for him,
He had a good opportunity in Portland but didn't deliver - since he was a former Knick I was watching him from afar,
I also remember the Lakers and the other PG needing teams at the time never went after Felton despite his availability in free agency.
But I wish Stat's confidence in him and he turns things around once more.
i agree a catch and shoot PG would thrive in this system, but Felton is capable of Catch and Shooting the ball ( not successfully as lets say "Mario Chalmers" or "billups") but he can still hit it. Alot of the time Felton is controlling the ball and making the plays, here with this revamped knicks lineup he does not have to do everything like he did when he was here in 2010.
If felton can play the "Chalmers role" which i believe he can, and nail that 3 point shot consistently and pick his spots of when he wants to attack.. we can keep the defense at bay.. JKidd is also capable of catching and shooting, but he cant attack the way Felton is capable of attacking

Ray Felton is not really a spot up shooter but more of a two dribble side step shooter in rhythm,
So most important thing he gotta do is play some hard D,
energize the team with his occasional big plays and jersey poppin' (lol)
and then get STAT involved SOMEHOW. If it's possible.
With the apparent departure of Lin, Felton will now be on the microscope of every Knicks fan. One can only wish that he's working his ass off as he'll now be labeled by the media as the guy who ran Lin out of New York. Time to hit the gym, Raymond. His performance will definitely be a BIG part of how well we'll do next season. Let's hope J. Kidd can still help him improve, even @ 28 years old. Particularly, how JKidd learned how to shoot the three ball with consistency.
Also, as previously mentioned, it's time to close this thread down. This is now a thread for a player who is officially a Houston Rocket. He couldn't be any less consequential to the Knicks at this point.
I just find it ironic that the Knicks fought to be able to get Lin and Novakaine's Early Bird Rights, and the dude who I thought would leave in FA ended up staying, and the dude who I could have sworn was a lock to stay, finagled his way into some serious skrilla...and is out.
Funny how things go sometimes.
