Two Views of Raymond Felton as He Takes Over for Jeremy Lin in New York

A more optimistic view posits that Felton, a 28-year-old journeyman with a lack of star power (and global marketing clout), can be a virtue in Coach Mike Woodson’s halfcourt offense, in which Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire remain the focal points. With experience running offenses as different as Larry Brown’s clock-chewing grind and Mike D’Antoni’s freelance sprint, Felton would serve as a better binding agent than the enigmatic Lin, according to that view.
