Prigioni Promises Anti-Jeremy Lin Style
Pablo Prigioni assured Knicks fans they have nothing to worry about at the point-guard position without Jeremy Lin.
Prigioni, starting point guard for Argentina’s medal-contending Olympic squad, said he is more of a pass-first point guard than Lin, and the club will be solid with a three-headed platoon of Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd and himself.
“I think we have at that position everything, Prigioni said Saturday in an interview at a remote high school in East London. “Raymond can score more. Jason and [I] can run the team. I feel we have many options at that position. Fans will be happy and enjoy our game.’
“Jeremy is more a scorer. He likes to shoot more. I saw him play 10 games. I’m not this kind of player. I like the team to play good, pass the ball, find open shots. I like to play smart — if someone’s hot, pass the ball to him.’’
