    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

    He does nothing that really jumps out at you. And he shots too damn much...


    But he is better than J.Lin!!!

    That's fine, but this team needs better PG play in order to really do damage. You cant have a PG that misses so many GOOD shots when left open.

    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.

    A dude who gets out classed by Kirk Hinrich?

    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 ****.

    He is an ok passer, has very good cross dribble, good penetrator, but is a terrible shooter.
    He is overrated only because he is playing in a very good team with great finisher like Melo and thats why his assist stats are reletively high.
    Should be a lot higher if he for instance can find Novak more often. Many times i see him shooting fadeaway jumpers over two defenders when some of his teammates are wide opened.
    The same can be said about JR but to a lesser degree. Shot selection is a problem with those two. But JR is a shooting guard and i can leave with that, on the other hand Feltons job is to distribute the ball, run the team, not taking 30 shots like he did not too long ago.
    I hope i am wrong but i am going to say that we will not win championship with Felton at the point guard position.
    I think that is important.

    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.

    Thats what Felton said himself right? LOL. What a joke.
    I am not a big Lin fan, but at this point i honestly think that we would be better off with him then what we have right now. At least Lin is a lot smarter and would make better decisions on the court.

    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?

    i want that kidd, shump, melo, stat, chandler. line up so bad. thats a championship lineup right there. point blank period.... felton and jr can score off the bench. sometimes i dont understand what woody is thinking when he keeps felton in the game and subs out kidd. i guess pacing him until the playoffs... i still feel this is our year amidst our recent struggles. we are gonna get better...

    He hasn't gotten to the level of other similar experienced PG's. yes, I'm biased and just don't like his fat a$$.
