didn't jeremy lin put up better avg's last year than felton has EVER put up in a season his entire nba career? and Lin's avg's INCLUDED all the games he played like 5 minutes in earlier in the season before starting which bumped down his #'s - and still finished like 14-6
Actually no sir, Felton's stats as a Knick were better than Lin's stats as a Knick. More points, a.ssists, less turnovers, etc. (And he played more games... Making it harder to maintain a good avg)

About the "5 mins" thing, Lin really didnt play at all the beginning of the season. When he started playing, he was playing big minutes. I remember the game in Boston before the SuperBowl he came in for some of the 2nd quarter and never retured. The next game was the game against Jersey where he took over.

He might've had one game (if that much) where he came in at the end during garbage time but that's it so his average would not have been bumped down by that.

yeah they would make the money back off the Lin jersey sales alone. you know how many people were rockin those linsanity shirts i dont see one dude rockin a felton shirt. Lin could turn out to be an all star you guys haven't even given the guy a complete season. he is getting over paid but in a leauge that pays brook lopez 61 mil and gives jason kidd 9 mil for three years when u know he cant play more than another year why not match the offer. Lin > Felton all day even if he rides the bench for three years you know how much money off the marketing he would've made Dolan. Knicks lost.
Jersey sales are split through all teams

Melo isnt going to let that happen.. Ball is in his hands not Felton. Melo is the problem on the Knicks.

They wouldnt be subject to the huge tax till year three. Amare, Melo and Chandler all expiring deals. Lin is 24 with room to grow. I think you match and hope he grows to be abetter point. If no improvement, move one of the four in the expiring year. Deal with it then.

No no no... Felton's job is to GET the ball in Melo's hands... He's the point guard.

Felton doesn't even have to do as much as he did the last time with the Knicks when he was basically the 2nd option.

He can just distribute and shoot open shots when need be.

That highlight video is Felton running high pick and roll 100% of the time. Melo isnt going to let that happen. It will be iso and clear out ball once he feels threatened. Sad thing is they would be better with Danilo, Wilson Chandler, could've taken Quincy Miller this year with the second they dealt, kept their first in 2014 and 2016.

I disagree. Melo's at his best is better than those guys at their best.

Look I really like Gallo and Chandler (was sad to see them go)... But they are NOT Carmelo Anthony. Gallo and Chandler are not capable of consistently averaging 25 points a game and they are not closers.

For all the criticism Melo receives (sometimes rightfully so), the guy is one of the best scorers and closers in the game. Most importantly, he's not AFRAID to take that last shot. Those aforementioned gentlemen... are.

Also people forget, that Knicks team in 2010-early 11 hit a wall. Amare started to get tired from dropping 30 every night and needed a closer, a 2nd option. Enter...

I agree that Melo is a very good player and has the attributes you refer to but you traded away three good role players, multiple picks and gave him a 3 year 65 million dollar extension and the flexibility to make moves that comes with it. I guess I'm just not a Melo fan.

Chandler / Camby
Amare / Thomas / Novak
Melo / Copeland / White
JR Smith / Shumpert /
Kidd / Felton

vs

Chandler / Camby / Mozgov
Amare / Mike Scott or O Quinn (2nd rd pick this year???)
Danilo / Chandler
Smith / Shumpert
Kidd / Lin

I like the second lineup better to be honest. You go get a backup four in free agency.

You cant just automatically a.ssume the Knicks would make the same acquisitions they did after getting Melo IF they didnt get Melo...

Who's to say Chandler comes here if Melo's not here? Why the hell would he leave the Mavs and Dirk after getting a ring? I'm pretty sure he would've only come if Melo was here. And wasnt Melo instrumental in getting JR?

If we dont ge Melo, that changes everything. Knicks made decisions based on the team they have at that time. And I'd still take the first team lol. The 2nd team would STILL need a closer.

Gallo and Chandler were good but them n*ggas are injury prone and they're overpaid now. They're not on cheap contracts anymore

If he plays anything close to how he played before the Melo trade, Knicks are going to have an interresting season.
