    Felton might be overweight but hes still good. I never wanted him to be traded in the first place. Honestly though **** lin we need players who wanna be here and wanna bring a chip to the garden. Not some kid who wants to play on a depleted houston roster. Have fun lin.

In the least we know what Felton will bring (I've seen enough of his games over the years). We can't say the same for Lin.
    There you have it folks. Also, we KNOW Felton has built chemistry with Amare.

    Just asking for the sake of convo... What do you hate about him?

    We're not saying he's God but for what we need and the price and his attitude when motivated could be a huge plus for us.

    Felton's lack of speed or agility kills me. I like thunderfast PG's like Wall, Paul, Jennings, Barbosa, Parker, Telfair, Barea or agile freaks like Nash, Lin, Wall, Holliday, etc.

    Plus, Felton never been great at anything, nor horrible. He's just a default player, nothing to get excited about. It BORES me.

    Forget Felton.

    Let Prigioni and Kidd run the PG spot, they're wizards.

But I highly doubt it will go down like that. I think Lin is gone, & it's a damn shame that it had to come to this. All for the sake of an extra $5M on his contract, which to me is peanuts compared to the extra endorsement dollars he would have made if he were playing in NYC next season.
    It's actually 3 million less than the original agreement of 4 years 28.8. With the flood of automatic match rumors, Morey went back to the drawing board to design a deal that would be close to unmatchable. So he funneled that back end of the original deal into the max salary he could get into year 3.

    Dude, all I want is wins, you can put Spike Lee at point for all I care, just make it happen and bring a championship to the knicks.

    Felton was good while he was here and i'm glad he is back, now I would like Lin also matched as the ideal situation. If it doesn't happen, i'll live with it

    Toney Parker (he's on your list but I would not consider him quick or agile)
    Eric Snow
    Chauncy Billups
    Derek Harper
    Jameer Nelson
    Jose Calderon
    Mark Jackson


    These are some past and present PG's that were not exciting nor athletic. The new age PG's play like SG's who can pass the rock. I'm not knocking them, but they are not neccessary for every team!

    Plus speed can lead to recklessness and eratic play (read Jeremy Lin).

    And C'mon you would really rather Telfair or Berea over Felton?


    I think you can make a case about last time Felton being here he was not the type of PG we needed (although his numbers were solid) but our current lineup needs nothing more than a solid PG who can run the show for us! We just need a ready made PG who can defend and plays with heart.

    I'll take a head smart PG over an Athlete any day for this lineup.

    Jason Kidd carved out a Great NBA career with limited athletic ability, he is smart and crafty which is why he is still playing.

    again a team like The Thunder would do better with a athletic PG, but we are not an overly athletic team.

    Raymond Felton is a little above average PG and that's all we need.

    Kidd was John Wall when he first started. Fastest guy in the league with the ball. Developed into a bit of Oscar Robertson during his Phx and early NJ days. Now in the sunset of his career he has bought time by smartly managing his gas tank through out the season. Defensively he's relied a lot on reversing offensive sets, knowing where a certain player have to go before the set is executed.

    I agree with metrocard about everything he's said about Felton.

    The guy put up double digits when he wasn't a Knick. I'll take him. I just hope he doesn't pull a Jamarcus Russell and shows up looking like Fat Albert.
