Deron Williams Says Raymond Felton Better for Knicks Than Jeremy Lin

According to Brooklyn Nets superstar point guard Deron Williams, the New York Knicks made the right choice by going with Raymond Felton instead of fan favorite Jeremy Lin. Per the NY Post: “I would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion,’ Williams said. ‘Well, he’s just proven. I can’t go out and say that … [Lin] had a heck of a run. The numbers he was putting up were All-Star type numbers, when he was starting. We’ll see how he does this year. But going off of track record? I’m going to go with Raymond Felton. And Ray probably had his best year [with the Knicks] … that half year he was there, he was averaging like 17 and nine. He definitely likes the bright lights, and they’re a good team with him.’ Linsanity began last season against the Nets, when Lin came off the bench and scored 25 points and dished out seven assists in a 99-92 win over the Nets on Feb. 4. A little more than later, Williams returned the favor by hitting eight 3-pointers and finishing with 38 points in a 100-92 Nets win at the Garden on Feb 20.”

    i agree 100% with DWill

    Does it matter? Neither Felton nor Lin can even dream of dealing with Deron Williams. Either way, the Knicks are in trouble when they play the Nets.

    who cares. both get lit up by dwill

    If New York Felton shows up, Deron might be right. If Portland Felton starts for the Knicks, pretty much any point is better.

  • pposse

    why is dwill speaking on other players like this? U of I clearly hasn’t taught you enough dwill; you are becoming a disapointment day by day. New York state of mind has took over your logic.

  • poka mah

    DWill is OVER-PAIDED & OVERRATED!! Period. DWill seriously need to SHUT UP until he can bring the NETS to PLAYOFFs. At least LIN won games for Knicks & got Knicks to Playoff.

    D.Will was Lin’s first victim…

    Felton never ran the floor the way Lin did. Neither of them are D. Will but mental-midget Felton is not better than Lin. If you can’t see that, then you’ve got confirmation bias syndrome.
