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