shuttlesworth was garbage, and got exposed at big state. whe his jumper isnt falling, hes completely useless

but seriously, most people didnt think losing lin was that huge a drop-off, just that dolan ought to have kept him back, instead of letting him go for nothing, considering how rich the dude is.

lol @ a Felton/Kidd backcourt. That's the worst backcourt in the NBA for a potential playoff team. In b4 Knicks fans are hit with reality. Not keeping Lin, was a good move but let's not act like they have something better.

Lets talk when the regular season is over. Felton had a good beginning with NY in 2011 but he was going downhill by December and then they eventually traded him for Carmelo.

i lold at the idiot who said Felton was a better defender, came to no surprise who it was that said it though

4 games into the season and there's been threads about Melo being an MVP candidate and the Knicks being the best team in the league.

Felton is better than Lin. Lin was a cash cow, fun to watch because he was a bench warmer, good story to him. It was good while it lasted.

Lin is a league average starter at best. It's not a big deal.

It actually got a pretty balanced reaction, there are some people who still swear up and down it was the end of the world.

yeah, I was always okay with Felton. He was very good for the knicks 2 years ago. at the moment, they're at similar levels but felton doesn't have lin's upside or youth.

What upside? Felton now plays the point guard position better than Lin ever will.

And Felton is 28, Lin is 24. Not a huge gap, in my view.

The moment Melo leaves this team for another he's gonna get shit on so hard.
