Felton or Lin: Who Will Have the Better Season? Make Your Call.
Knicks fans all across the globe are still expressing frustration over the team's decision to let Jeremy Lin go. It's clear no one wanted (or expected) Linsanity to come an end so very soon in the Big Apple.
Did the Knicks ultimately make the right call? They believed Lin's offer sheet from the Rockets was too pricey of a penny to pay for a player who had provided them with such a small sample size.
Perhaps if there were no other options out there, it would be more likely that Lin would be returning to the Knicks. That simply wasn't the case. In addition to luring in Hall of Fame bound point guard Jason Kidd to help lead the second unit, the Knicks also brought back Raymond Felton to serve as their quarterback.
With Felton's arrival and Lin's departure comes an ongoing debate that is sure to last the entire season. Who is the better point guard? Which one of these starters will have a bigger impact for their respective teams?
Felton sure seems to know his answer to the burning question. The newest Knickerbocker spoke to MSG Network in Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon, firmly asserting that he is the better guard of the two.
And now it's your turn to make a prediction. Who do you think will have a better season: Raymond Felton or Jeremy Lin? It's time to let your voice be heard by Knicks Journal.
If you're interested in winning a cool Knicks prize (or two), then this is the contest for you! Take a gamble and attempt to guess what both Felton and Lin's averages will be in points, assists, and turnovers at midseason and the end of the season. The contestant with the most accurate stat guesses at the end of each period will win a prize. The trick is making those predictions before the season starts.
