Maybe Santa will bring us Chris Paul for Christmas
It was a joke but...
Feltons fine at point guard, he just needs to change his shot selection and gain his confidence back.
Whens the last time a team won a championship with an ELITE point guard?
2011- 2012 Heat- Chalmers
2010 - 2011 Mavs- Kidd / Barea
2009-2010 Lakers - Fisher
couldn't you just post this in the "everybody hates felton" thread?
He has a bone bruise on both hands that he's playing through, give him some time. He was playing great at before the injuries
I don't think it would be a terrible idea if the Knicks contacted Stephon Marbury and asked him for one last run with them.
You're overrating him, it's not even worth discussing. This is worse than Linsanity, atleast in Linsanity, we knew Lins limitations. Apparently Felton has become one of the league's penetrations and a top 5 PG in the east...which is a joke both ways, especially in the era of PG's, no one in this forum can't tell me Felton is better than 15 point guard with a straight face. It's maxed out mindless homerism.
nyk_nyk, you still haven't explained why Felton is better than 5 point guards in the East, with any of them being Rondo, Williams, Rose, Holliday, Walker, or Wall. If you were the GM of this team this franchise would be crumbled in mediocracy. You would be too afraid to fix any problems just because we're winning regular season games. We play to win a championship, not the regular season. Dallas played to win regular season games and never got to the finals until they changed up their entire formula and constructed a team that relied on team defense and great ball movement. In the past, Dallas was a team of scoring stars with Nick Van Exel, Mike Finley, Antonie Walker, Antwain Jamison, Nash, and Dirk...they heavily relied on their offense and it didn't work for them. You would **** on this franchise because you actually think Felton is a top 5 PG in the East, it shows how out of reality your rankings are. Felton was garbage in Portland, and he was a big reason for their losing. Don't come in here telling me Felton is this formula for success. You bring a talent like Jennings or Kemba Walker to New York, not only they will do what Felton does, but they'll do more in the most efficient way possible because they actually get to play with NBA all stars like Melo and Chandler, and deep veteran team instead of the discombobulated teams they plan on today. Ask how badly Bucks GM and Jordan wants Felton(Ray is a former tarheel and Jordan gave him the boot). These guys are GM's...even though they made ****ty deals, I think they know more than you, so don't question my ability to judge a player's value when yours is extremely flawed and unpracticed. If you take the chance to do research on the guys I present to you, you would realize Felton ain't ****.
Felton is a wanna be pass first PG who doesn't shoot a high percentage, he has tendencies to take a lot of ill advised shots...for example against Chicago, Felton took 21 shots; which is a terrible game plan because Chicago has great interior defense with Gibson and Noah, Felton driving to the basket will be negated so he has to settle for jumpshots, and we know how that works out for Ray Ray.
Felton is the most average PG in the NBA...he's not the worst, but he's definitely not a top 15 PG.
Jarret Jack does more work than Felton and he doesn't even start.
We're comparing the best with the best, not teams record. Felton's ass lost us the game @ Chicago; he let Kirk Hinrich tool him offensively and defensively.
I think we'll become a worse team if we don't change Felton's role.
We need rebounding.
Let Kidd stay at PG.
Shumpert at SG
Melo @ SF
Stoudimire at PF (lets give him a chance.
Chandler at C
bench you have offensive spark plugs with Felton, Smith, Novak.
Let's fix the problem before it fixes us.
the concern with Felton for me over the season is whether he'll be in good shape for the entire season.
When is Baron Davis due back?
