Chalk one up for Raymond Felton in the “who’s better debate” that seems to have taken over New York ever since the Knicks let Jeremy Lin walk to the Houston Rockets. The surprise opinion comes from new cross town rival Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets. However, let’s not forget that “Linsanity” sprung after Jeremy Lin outplayed Deron Williams in what became the start of the phenomenal stretch that featured high scoring games and a game winner against the Toronto Raptors. Deron took this personally though, as he went on to crush the Knicks in the rematch game a few weeks later. Via Yahoo Sports: ”I would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion,” Williams said at the Nets’ practice facility. Williams stopped short of saying the Knicks are a better team without Lin as the starting point guard, but said he would rather go with Felton because of what the veteran has accomplished in the league as a starter, especially during his short stay in New York before he was included in the deal that brought Carmelo Anthony over to the Knicks. ”He is just proven,” Williams said. ”You’ll have to see Jeremy Lin. He had a heck of a run. The numbers he was putting up were All-Star type numbers when he was starting, so we’ll see how he does this year. But going off of track record, you know I’m going to go with Raymond Felton and Ray probably had his best year, that half season he was there. I guess he likes the bright lights. “ Deron Williams went on to say that Felton is back in good shape, while having his best season as a pro during his first stint with the New York Knicks. The Knicks’ fans are certainly hoping D-Will is right.   The post Deron Williams says Raymond Felton is better than Jeremy Lin appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
