13 assists? Seriously? You'll think he'll be the best playmaker in the entire NBA next year?
What a joke.
It takes days off here and there.
Lin average 14.6 points and 6.2 assist for the Knicks. Raymond Average 17.1 points and 9.0 assist per game as a Knick, plays better defense and has developed chemistry with Amare. Plus the fact that he wants to play here is a motivator. I wouldn’t count his production as a Blazer and Nugget…he didn’t want to be at any of those places. Felton under Woodson’s control is only going to make him and the team better.
Felton does not play better defense.
Everyones assists drop when playing with Melo. To me Felton is average in all PG skills. He's nothing special, but he's not bad either. I think it's more than fine having Felton when the offense should go through Melo on this team.
Felton understood the magnitude of playing in NYC the first time and i'm positive he will respect that again. I could care less what he did with DEN/POR because it always looked like that trade shook him up a bit. We've already seen what he can do when he's motivated and in a comfortable setting. Felton's stats were actually better than Lin's with the same coach and over 20 more games played!
Linsanity has blinded most people but not me. All I saw was a guy who came in a played some good basketball and led the team over wins against mostly subpar competition. The fact that he's Asian descent and from Harvard made him a huge star when Felton nearly played his way to an all-star game and got minimal attention.
Bottom line, if they re-sign him great.. but if they don't I won't feel like its a loss for the team.
MY LAST POINT:
We ALL know this team will go as far as Melo, Tyson and Amare allow it to go. While TC and Melo have been productive, Amare has been mostly non-productive and said to be a bad pairing for Melo. Well, who was the one guy that had Amare playing at a high level?? Who was the pg that built chemistry with Amare which most of us were all raving about?? FELTON!
If the guy comes to camp in shape, none of us should worry about him. He's a warrior that would definitely be on the court with his teammates at 85% health.
