And the stats you posted on Lin post Linsanity really doesn't tell the whole story. Lin put up some great games, some decent ones, and a few stinkers during that period. He did pretty good in some games where either Melo or Amare were shitting bricks, like the game vs the spurs (even though they lost)? He was also a difference maker in a few of those games, remember that Philly game where he made all his free throws in the 4th q and helped the knicks secure the win? Can felton do that?
Who knows what Woodson's offense will include. He's yet to have an offseason with these guys and didn't even really have many practices.
As for Felton, he shot better from the line than Lin last year. They shoot about the same from the line. I think there's no advantage either way.
In my opinion, in the words of my dad, Raymond Felton is the median now for PGs. If your better than him, your at the very least, a pretty good pg. If your worse than him, then your probably not worthy of a starting role. I think that's a fair assessment.
