A year removed from the collective bargaining agreement fiasco that consumed the 2011 offseason, this offseason has been a different kind of chaos as some of the NBA's finest have been on the move.
Ray Allen and Steve Nash have moved their residences to Miami and Los Angeles, respectively, and Joe Johnson signed with the Nets as they embark on their inaugural season in Brooklyn. But what about the underrated pick-ups that go unnoticed?
The player without all the commercials and endorsements who is the underrated steal of this offseason is Raymond Felton.
The New York Knicks have brought back the 6'1", 205 lb bulldog-like point guard for his second tour with the team, and it couldn't be a better fit. As someone who thought it was a mistake to include him in that trade that brought Carmelo Anthony to NY, the Knicks made a great move in getting his services again. He's got the heart, head and intangibles to make New York a perennial contender in the East.
Lets take a further look at some of the reasons why this underrated pickup should pay off for the Knicks.
