basically a legit 2nd option and a great pairing for melo to get open jumpers too. felton has just caused knick fans ulcers.
Felton is by far the worst starting PG in the league. I don't know how anybody can actually defend him. Your friends must be delusional. The Knicks are better off just trotting Prigioni out there for 35 minutes a game, regardless of whether they'll run him into the ground or not. Or just letting Melo play point forward and take the ball up the court himself.
the kid from austrailia just declared for the draft.
affluent insulated international upbringing from a middling former UNC jordan teammate/nba/international pro league(s) father...well spoken and introspective... little kobe-ish huh? maybe grant hill (his game is very grant-hill ish ) Edited by LawrenceMD - 1/28/14 at 12:21pm
there was a picture of kobe's legs from behind and his right calf muscles were a lot smaller and smoother than this left one. apparently it's common after an achilles injury (e.g. elton brand) and takes a long time to rehabilitate. it might've been the reason why he got injured again. also he can't really jump off his right leg anymore so he can't do fadeaways and it's laborious for him to pivot. he might come back this season but he's going to be really bad
there's no point in him coming back. in fact, i think it would probably make the team worse (if that is even possible). right now, bad as they are (very good dleague?), they at least have to work together. kobe comes in and everyone automatically defers. ball stops. half-speed kobe has to manufacture shots on his own. disaster.
