I admire what Lin has done and he's a good player with great heart, but he has ways to go. Do I still think that we can upgrade the PG position even with Felton? Absolutely, no question.
With Harden having the ball 60% of the time with the Rockets, Lin is pretty much used as a spot up and shoot guard. The Rockets are wasting their money. The Knicks would have been better off with Lin than Felton though.
Lin is still young and has a lot of room to improve. His 3 point shooting was abysmal last season, but second half and on he was shooting close to 40%. The way he plays looks ugly, but he does have a really quick first step. Personally, I think he might be better off as a 6th man.

glad we signed tyler. i think he's got a lot of potential.
One big thing Felton has over Lin is health. Lin was in and out of the line-up in HOU all season because his body just couldn't hold up. Felton, throughout his career, has shown to be able to stay on the court.
One thing though is that Felton was relied on too much to be a scorer, and particularly in big games where teams dared him to drop 20, he generally failed at that. He needs to be the 4th or 5th scoring option on the team, not the 3rd. Presumably, he'll be that now behind Melo, Stat, JR and Bargs.
I believe in Game 6 vs. the Pacers, he was 0-7 I think. But that shouldn't be his role anyway.
I am perfectly fine with Felton, he's not the best out there but he's good enough to be a starter. I think Lin is still learning the position, but he's a streaky player. Felton is not as streaky.
