Once Jeremy Lin was traded to the Houston Rockets and the New York Knicks brought in Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd, I cringed a bit because both of these guys have not been very productive lately and Kidd is 39 years old.
But I have to admit, I was wrong. This was a great move by the Knicks.
Jason Kidd: 7.9 PPG 3.0 APG 2.3 RPG
Kidd has been pretty impressive so far, especially because of his age. He might not be putting up fantastic numbers, but his leadership and effort has been key for this team. Kidd being a veteran is also extremely important to this team as well. He has been moving the ball very well, and getting all of his teammates involved.
Raymond Felton: 15.5 PPG 6.5 APG 2.9 RPG
Felton has been a great addition for the Knicks. He is putting up great numbers and proving all the doubters wrong. He has been very productive and effective, and is one of the big reasons why the Knicks are 7-1.
Pablo Prigioni: 2.8 PPG 2.8 APG 0.6 RPG
Prigioni hasn’t been getting a ton of minutes and hasn’t been putting up great numbers, but he is a very important piece to this point guard rotation and to this team.
The New York Knicks look very good, and with these point guards help, I believe this team is going to have a great season.
