Kidd is a good back up point guard. His own point guard play thrives when Felton is on the floor with him.

I know Felton aint no Chris Paul. But the Clippers looks so bad without a legit point guard. A lot of playmaking responsibility is falling on Blake and Caron Butler. It looks bad.

A lot of one on one basketball. No flow.

Just like Jason Kidd still has alot of game left. They only look good next to their starting point guard.

Bledsoe is the furthest thing from a PG

This team without Felton is nowhere close to the team we had last year.

Last year we barely had players who could dribble forget about running a play.

We have a host of players who can do both, just not fulltime.

Melo was running pnr with Amare for three assists, and a couple more were kickouts for threes....he wasn't facilitating during the entire absence of Felton, just this past game.

I hope doctors are erring on the conservative side. Losing him for the season would be devastating. A two week stretch of average basketball would not.

This team without Felton lacks a crucial component for success but that shouldn't take away from what Kidd provides.

Just like Tyson can't make up for Felton's absence neither can Kidd who, at this point,provides different qualities than Felton.

His D is great but its better against larger and somewhat slower players. He's gonna struggle vs rondo. His passing is amazing but he's not doing it off penetration at this point which is obviously crucial to this squad. Mostly this hurts guys like Novak and chandler and Kidd himself. Melo will still get his 30 nightly.

Ironically Kidd had been the one to benefit most perhaps from drive and dish off Felton's play.

I agree. I starting to lean towards him returning after all star break. The things we ask him will incurr a lot of hits at the ball/hands.

actually he will get the all star break off anyway he might as well come back, help us out, test those hands and then rest up

obviously not at the risk of further injury but Id like to see him get some burn before the break

If Felton from November comes back, that is great. If Felton from December is what we get, don't expect much change in the results.

I think that coincided with when Pablo went down.

There was quite a few in the game who were running the point such as Shump.

I doubt we see that version of Melo tomorrow...no worries here.

Hopefully he is back soon! As frustrating as he is to watch sometimes he is a real difference maker on the court. He opens a lot of Chanlder and Stat. I'm very interested on how he plays with stat, remember this ? :wink:

I wasn't gonna create a thread for this, but I find it amazing how our guys seem to let twitter folks rattle them...

This tweet was sometime yesterday, but since has been taken down....the first two is Ray, the second is who started it.....and quite a few chiming in on it.

It was in reference to the introduction of the Lexus suite

RFeltonGBMS Headed to celebrate the launch of the @Lexus suite in @thegarden . Great partnership: http://t.co/hLFC3Dca

Raymond Felton ‏@RFeltonGBMS
Get a life for whoever starting the dumb joke, I got the chocolates from an event tonight that I attended as and gift. Wow!! Grow up!!
