ADVISORY TO DOLAN: DO NOT RE"LIN"QUISH LIN

Do we want to go into next season with Ray Felton and Jason Kidd as our point guards?  Felton in 2012 is not the same as Felton in 2010.  I question if he is in NBA basketball shape and if he can recover his outside shooting--only 30% from beyond the arc last year.   Similarly, If Jason Kidd's recent DWI arrest is an indication of how he intends to behave off court, I would...
