Re: Knicks hiding from Rockets to avoid receiving offer sheet?
I never really liked Felton but I don't think Lin is that much better than him.
He was great during the Linsanity (from the Nets game until the other Nets game,the one we lost in Melo's return) but besides that he was really an average point guard. 15/4/7 is good but nothing spectacular.
Stats during Linsanity (10 game period):
22.5 points , 3.4 rebounds , 8.3 assists , 2.0 steals , 5.3 turnovers on 50.9% shooting and 33.3% for three
Stats after Linsanity (17 game period):
15 points , 3.7 rebounds , 6.8 assists , 1.9 steals , 3.8 turnovers on 40% shooting and 31.8% for three
Raymond Felton stats with the Knicks:
17.1 points , 3.6 rebounds , 9.0 assists , 1.8 steals , 3.3 turnovers on 42% shooting and 33% for three
Basically Felton had even better stats than Lin after that 10 game stretch when he had the green light to do whatever he wants.
