Pick Felton

Feelin' Felton?

Inside Bay Area's Carl Steward writes that the Warriors are in a great spot to take the best player available with the #9 pick in Picking Felton would be inspiring.

Regardless of who's right, what all the projections say rather loudly is this: With just aweek to go, nobody really has a clue about what the Warriors are going to do, and for once, that's a good thing.

Not shackled with a glaring hole to fill or a looming free-agency situation of which to be frightened, Chris Mullin and Co. can go into the draft more freewheeling, creative and perhaps even a little devilish. To wit, the Warriors have a chance to mess up the Lakers rather badly.

How could they put a bitter beer face on Phil Jackson? Select North Carolina point guard Raymond Felton, whom the Lakers desperately covet. I would contend Felton is the perfect player for the Warriors anyway and fits their up-tempo style better than any of the big guys save Granger, who very likely won't drop to them.

Felton is a streak, a devastating transition point guard with outstanding penetration capability, excellent passing skills, a decent jump shot and a good head. He's young, but as Baron Davis' backup, he would have the freedom to learn and mature under one of the best in the game.
