According to ESPN's NBA Rank, Jeremy Lin is a better point guard than Raymond Felton.

NBA Rank, a ranking of all 500 NBA players compiled by a panel of 215 ESPN journalists, has Lin as the 108th best player in the NBA. Felton is ranked 110th.

Do you think that's accurate?

Lin averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 assists per game last year, while shooting 44 percent from the field. He averaged 2.9 turnovers per game.

Felton averaged 13.9 points per game and 5.5 assists last season, while shooting 42.7 percent from the field. He averaged 2.3 turnovers per night.

This ranking may rub some Knicks fans the wrong way, considering New York decided against matching the Rockets' 3-year, $25 million offer sheet in the 2012 offseason. Instead, they traded for Felton.

Worth noting: the Knicks won 54 games and advanced to the second-round of the playoffs. The Rockets were knocked out in the first round.

Other rankings of interest:

Amar'e Stoudemire is ranked 125th, behind Greivis Vasquez and ahead of Tobias Harris.

J.R. Smith is ranked 93rd, one behind J.J. Reddick and one ahead of Ersan Ilyasova. And Iman Shumpert is 119th, one ahead of Lou Williams and one behind Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Question: Would you rank Lin ahead of Felton? Do you think the ranking for Stoudemire (125th) is accurate?
