Personally, I never got all that caught up in Linsanity.
I appreciate his game, I love the reckless abandon he shows going to the hoop, I admire his knowledge and his devotion to his faith, and I called him “Time Magazine cover material” a week before he was on the cover of Time Magazine. I’m glad he got papered (NBA parlance for getting paid).
But you know what? Raymond Felton is better.
Not only a better all-around player, but a better fit for the New York Knicks.
So is Pablo Prigioni. And so is Jason Kidd, should he ever return to playing point guard (the guy is as much of a spot-up shooter as anyone in the league except perhaps Shane Battier.
We got into a discussion of Linsanity (or should we say post-Linsanity) in this interview with Brian Clark of Cinesport, also touching on the big Oklahoma City-Philadelphia game Saturday night and the chances of any NBA player ever coming close to accomplishing what Jack Taylor did for Grinnell College earlier this week.
