if you look at felton's stats , his shot is not terrible... the issue is the inconsistency
there are many other intangibles that felton brings right now that make him the starter.. more experience, hard work, etc.
DJ needs to come off the bench. Not because I don't like him, but he's a rookie and his minutes have to be monitored to avoid hitting the wall.
Besides... small backcourts don't win championships.
According to this article, it looks like DJ and Felton are the starters at the 1/2 and Bell will come off the bench....which is kinda what I figured. The DJ/Felton combo worked very well when J-Rich was out and probably that success helped the Bobcats be more comfortable with this trade......
Bell is starting for the Bobcats. DJ, for the meanwhile, is the 6th man.
also..if carroll doesn't get shipped out..much to my dismay, i have to wonder if he would get any minutes ahead of shannon brown...we haven't really heard anything from LB regarding carroll....all he's ever said is that carroll & ammo are the same type player (which i disagree)

I think this trade was done for 3 things:
1. to get Diaw (and sit May)
2. open up DJ to get more time/experience
3. to get Singletary as the back-up to DJ for next year.
Its crystal clear that the Bobcats don't see Felton being on this team next year. I think Singletary was swapped for the 2nd round pick to be the back-up PG....otherwise no need for Singletary with Felton/DJ/Brown already on the roster.
I thought he should be starting since day one....
