Deron Williams Says Raymond Felton Better for Knicks Than Jeremy Lin

by October 29, 2012

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.”
