    Tonight we see what Lin is really made of. Will he bounce back or not?

    There is way too much pressure on Lin. I actually feel for the guy.

    That being said, I'm expecting poor shooting and a tough game with the defense keying on him and exploiting his weaknesses.

    Lets go Rockets.

    They put the quote in the title but not the article? And Felton is right, He is better than Lin. Prove me wrong Lin.

    The title of this thread should change, because it gives the wrong impression on what Felton actually said.

    Why is this news? Water is wet, the sky is blue, Lin is the worst starting pg in the NBA.

    Overwhelmed? He played in NY in the biggest media stage and decided to sign a 25 million dollar contract. Please, I don't that buy that lame-ass excuse.

    It's a classic NY Post thing to do. They sensationalize everything. There is a 50 / 50 chance those words were even said by Raymond Felton, and not just invented by the author as creative license.

    If this doesn't fire up Linsanity 2.0, then Lin is not ready for Prime Time T.V

    More like a 0/100 chance, because if he said it then they would have quoted him directly.

    Felton really wasn't disrespecting Lin or anything. If anything gave him props. Felton said pretty much that he is the more experienced PG and has done more over a longer period of time and he's right...but...

    First time I've heard a player say they have been 'exposed'.

    Felton has been playing better, but he still isn't very good himself. I wouldn't want him on my team. Guy is pretty unlikable.

    That said, most players think they're better than most other players even if they're clearly not and in this case Felton at least has a case.
    I never thought Lin was all that, but I do think he is better than he has been playing and I haven't given up hope that he'll improve as the season goes on.

    Scott Machado thinks he is no doubt better than Raymond Felton.

    Sensational title from a tabloid newspaper NY Post to just grab eyeballs. What else is new? :rolleyes:

    Totally misleading title. I don't have any major problem with what Felton actually said. Actually all of the quotes are fairly mild and diplomatic.
