    Impossible that he will give us those numbers.

    He gave us 17/9 under D'Antoni, I don't see how he will come close to that under Woody!

    12/7 is my very optimistic guess, and because he shot over 45% only once in his career I expect something like 42% FGs.

    And to be totally honest, we're talking about a guy that couldn't put the donuts down in a contract year. Draw your conclusions.

    I'll have to see a few pre season games first before giving my opinion on the matter. But seeing that we are now a defensive minded team...I suspect Ray Felton to have a lot of impact in Woodsons system. He will not be pressured to play D'Ants uptempo style but to get the rock to his front court players. The potential for dimes is there, he has good defensive awareness as a lane clogger and I'm sure Woody will tighten Ray's defense up even more. This is all theory from whats seen on paper and from what I've seen from him when he's motivated. If the heart and fight is there... Ray will be very instrumental in our wins. Plus, he plays better with a chip on his shoulder.

    I agree with CA7. Felton did not have Carmelo or Chandler to dish to when he played on previous Knick squad, this team is MUCH deeper than any team's he's EVER played on before, with more finishers. plus, he's coming in this season with a chip on his shoulder, and he'll be in good shape. dollars to donuts, Feltip will excel.

    - Rebound at 3-6 rpg

    - Knock down open shots ( 3 pointers ) / space floor


    The thing I am most worried about from Ronnie would be his ability to knock down 3 pointers. He is a pro so I am sure Woody has him working on this part of his game just as Landry was when the off season started.

    Good thread OP!
    No question that Ronnie Brewer can be the key especially in the absence of Shumpert. If Brewer can get his 9 point average up so much the better as we know he can play defense.

    I think the pudgy little fella has it in him. Maybe he will feel the Gahden energy again and it will awaken his inner beast.

    It has to be Felton because his position as starting PG will be vital to the team. If he can get Melo and Amare shots in good positions then this team will begin to take shape and become a dominant force. Also, he is more than ready to prove that he's no downgrade from our former 25+ game sensation. Trust me, he's heard all the talk about Lin being better than him after only playing a little more than a 1/4 of a regular season and he's ready to shut people up.

    Thumbs up Jason Kidd

    The easiest question to answer .. Kidd's floor leadership, Kidds bench-coaching, and Kidds lockerroom discipline.

    Kidd has the cred, Lin didn't. The players respect Kidd and will do and listen to what Kidd has to say.

    Kidd will add to his legacy through the successes of moulding Felton.

    There is an equilibrium between the 2, as one needs the other to help the team succeed. In doing so, they become successes.

    Long term, Felton. A season or 2 of high output and orchestration and he's done what he needs to do as Kidd's career reaches its twilight. He will then move on to another team as this 3 year window of opportunity comes to a close presumably, with a winner's ticket to a new and suitable contract for him.

    Can't wait to see it all unfold!

    I voted Camby. He's going to bridge that gap between Chandler and the rest of the team. It's a second guy that can swat and board, kind of the intermediate role between Amar'e and Tyson on defense.

    All the others are huge contributors but feltons will be the steepest

    Almost all of us here can agree that either Felton or Kidd will have the biggest role among all of our offseason acquisitions......but who should start?

    IMO, it should be Kidd.

    His versatility in terms of play style has made him a starter throughout his entire career. He can run an uptempo and halfcourt offense to perfection. More importantly, he knows how to run an offense in the halfcourt set, which in my mind is the type of offense that will be most effective for our big three frontcourt of Melo, STAT and TC.

    I believe its been stated Felton is our starter. Plus JR wants Kidd off the bench with him.

    I didn't know Woody has already appointed Felton as the starter. Doesn't he need to work for it first??

    Its gotta be Felton because if he can get the pick and roll working again with STAT it will free up Melo, Novak and even Chandler. What we don't need from Felton is alot of shots to try and be Lin in Jan/Feb 12. Just be the distributor.
