In my previous post, “Is Jason Kidd the Difference Maker to Take the New York Knicks Back to the Finals?” I noted how I felt that the Knicks acquiring Jason Kidd was a good signing because he would help Jeremy Lin to become a better ball player. This was before Jason Kidd goes out and gets arrested for DWI and slams his SUV into a pole. This was before the Knicks, who may now have doubts about matching the Houston Rockets offer sheet for Jeremy Lin because they feel it is just too much to pay him. So instead, the Knicks have gone another way and completed a sign and trade with the Portland Trailblazers to bring back Point Guard Raymond Felton, who happened to play with the Knicks in 2010-2011 season. I can understand going after Felton, who had his best season when he played with the Knicks, but is the pickup of 39 year old Jason Kidd, a good one now? Was he brought here mainly to help a younger Lin, who may not be in a Knicks uniform again.

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...
Knicks fans may need a few days before it officially sinks in, but Jeremy Lin is a Houston Rocket. Between the knee injury last season and New York letting Lin walk in free agency, Linsanity ended about as quickly as it began. With New York’s decision to not match Houston’s $25.1 million offer, Jeremy’s life will undergo yet another rapid change. During an interview with Pablo...
