Deron Williams doesn't seem like a very big Jeremy Lin fan. At one point last season, he refused to talk about Lin and Linsanity at all. And, over the weekend, he revealed that he thinks the Knicks actually upgraded their roster by letting Lin go to the Rockets and trading for Raymond Felton instead.
"I would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion," he said. "He's just proven…[Lin] had a heck of a run. The numbers he was putting up were All-Star type numbers, when he was starting. We'll see how he does this year. But, going off track record? I'm going to go with Raymond Felton…And Ray probably had his best year [with the Knicks]…that half year he was there, he was averaging like 17 and nine. He definitely likes the bright lights, and they're a good team with him."
A "good" team with him? Wow. Those quotes are littered with back-handed compliments for Lin, Felton, and the Knicks, aren't they? D-Will is clearly enjoying the spotlight that comes along with playing in New York City right now.
