Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams did not take kindly to some suggesting that Linsanity started one evening last season February, when Lin outplayed Williams badly in a stinker of a game.
Williams let it be known what it really was the next time he met up with Lin, scorching him and turning Lin’s lights out.
Williams was recently asked about Lin and new Knicks point guard Raymond Felton regarding who the better player is.
According to the Newark Star Ledger, it was an easy choice for Williams.
“I would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion,” Williams said at the Nets’ practice facility.
He is just proven,” Williams said of Felton.
“You’ll have to see Jeremy Lin. He had a heck of a run. The numbers he was putting up were All-Star type numbers when he was starting, so we’ll see how he does this year. But going off of track record, you know I’m going to go with Raymond Felton and Ray probably had his best year . that half season he was there. I guess he likes the bright lights. ”
That was an easy assessment.
