So Felton is arrested facing gun charges. Wow day after they cut BenU.
I fully fully admit a bias. I dislike the Knicks. I have always disliked the Knicks... long before Toronto ever had a team. I dislike a team that has so much going for it and consistently is able to mess it up. Generally I dislike most New York area teams being a Toronto guy anyway; Yankee's Rangers Giants Devils Islanders Mets Nets Jets. Not very likable teams.
But the Knicks especially turn me off.
This franchise yet again has imploded. Just as they did at the end of the Patrick Ewing era. Just as they did at the end of the Alan Houston era... just as they will after the Carmelo Anthony era.
I dont care what they offer him in terms of more money.
I dont care what his wife says.
Melo is a Laker or Bull next season.
Felton's numbers look like this:
Games / Games started / Minutes / FG% / RB / Ast / AstTO ratio / PPG
41 / 41 / 32.9 / 0.403 / 3.0 / 6.0 / 2.9 / 10.4
Jose Calderon as a comparison :
57 / 57 / 31.2 / .453 / 2.4 / 4.8 / 3.8 / 11.7
They coulda signed Calderon pretty easy I think. More direct flights New York to Madrid... I think Jose would have taken a small discount to play there.
Sidenote to "the beast" if you hang around.
I was pretty close to preseason. I know Barges is hurt right now !
But bottom line is Barges minutes per game been decreasing in favor of Stoudemire. In fairness Barges was getting the starting role.
Barges 42 / 39 / 29.8 / .442 / 5.3RB
/ 1.1 / 0.8 / 13.3
