Felts is best when he plays within himself and lets the game come to him rather than force the issue. I understand he is a fearce competitor and he wants to do everything he can to get the team a win, but when he is in that mind set he is no better than Crash taking on teams 1-5.
As soon as Felts starts to force the issue, you start to see the offensive fouls, the loose handles, the silly passes, the bad shot selection etc. Maybe that is why he's a better combo guard off the bench? Maybe he doesn't have it in him to hold himself back or control a game because he gets ahead of himself?
In saying that, he has shown glimpses of being a fantastic point guard with great creativity, passing, decision making and scoring (mailing going to the hole). Plus, he's still young and we all know how much of a hard worker he is and how much he cares (two traits that make me like him).
Of course, at his current rate, he's working himself into a 5 year 30 million dollar contract and if we could get him for that sort of deal I would be very happy.
