I believe we have a very weak backcourt, particularly while Shumpert is out. Felton is simply not that good and has never been that good. His year with D'Antoni was his best year, but D'Antoni's system even made Duhon look good.
Felton thinks he is much better than he is. When he was with us he averaged 14.833 shots a game with a field goal percentage of 41.2 and a three point percentage of .33. That is not impressive. Only Amare' took more shots, but his field goal percentage was 52. And it seemed that Felton always insisted on being the hero -- he inevitably took the last shot. He is at best a mediocre defender. Neither he, Kidd or Prigioni have a chance of keeping up with the likes of Westbrook, Wall, Irving, Lawson and Holiday.
Kidd is almost 39 and his game as been in serious reverse mode for a couple of years. He is hardly the defender he once was and he could never shoot that well. He is, however, a veteran presence and since our stars are in the front court will likely get them the ball.
Prigioni might help but he is 35 and does not seem to have much of an offensive game.
Brewer is gold on defense. I have hopes for JR.
We have nothing to brag about in the backcourt. Our front court is another matter. Hopefully Woodson will be able to space the floor so that Melo, Amare', Chandler and Camby avoid getting in each other's way.
I look at the coming season with some trepidation, because, given our lack of cap space and realistic trade chips, this is the best team we will have for some time. Kidd, Camby and Thomas are all pushing 40.
