Deron Williams thinks the Knicks upgraded at point guard this offseason. While Williams praised Jeremy Lin for the way he played in his brief, but spectacular, run as the Knicks starting point guard, he thinks the Knicks have more of a sure thing moving forward in Raymond Felton. "I would say Raymond Felton is a better point guard than Jeremy Lin, in my opinion," Williams said. "Well, he's just proven. I can't go out and say that … [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 of track record? I'm gonna 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." "Linsanity" began last season against the Nets, when Lin came off the bench and scored 25 points and dished out seven assists in a 99-92 win over the Nets on Feb. 4. A little more than later, Williams returned the favor by hitting eight 3-pointers and finishing with 38 points in a 100-92 Nets win at the Garden on Feb 20.
