ccording to ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks recently acquired
fat slob point guard, Raymond Felton, claims he can “still play as an elite point guard at this level.” I was amazed to read the entire article and find no mention of competitive eating. Has Felton lost his mind?
If you’ve read my previous Raymond Felton posts, you know I’m not a fan of the former Knick by any means. The guy who made the above video, The Knicks Channel – obglobal.net, may hate him more than I do. He’s put together several videos of the
food addict’s point guard’s lackluster play last season (with some very colorful commentary). There was a longer, better “Ray Felton is the worst point guard in the NBA” video, but I couldn’t post it in this article due to the graphic about 23 seconds in. You can watch it here if you care to see Raymond Felton play terrible basketball.
Check out some of my favorite excerpts from the ESPN article quoting Raymond Felton:
“Just to show everybody that I’ve still got it, I still can play”
“I still can play the game at this level. I still play as an elite point guard at this level. That’s just all.”
“When you come off a season like I had last year, there’s always a point where you’ve got to prove yourself coming back the next season. And trust me, I look forward to it.”
And last but certainly not least, my absolute favorite quote from the article:
“I’m just really getting after it, just working extra, extra hard. I’m not really doing anything different, just doing it more and working at it harder.”
Did he just say he’s not doing anything different, and that he’s just doing it more and working at it harder? After his performance last year, how the hell can he think whatever it is he does in the off-season or at practice actually works?
Phil Jackson is a Goddamned magician for being able to make Raymond Felton disappear. While I liked Tyson Chandler, the oft-injured center was expendable. When healthy, Chandler was undoubtedly the motor that kept the Knicks running, but what good is a motor with brittle bones and flamingo legs?
Hey Tyson, you skip leg day, bruh?
Even if the New York Knicks fail to retain Carmelo Anthony, I’m already more excited about this season than last year simply due to the fact that the delusional Raymond Felton is no longer on the team. Aside from his high school and college days, I can’t recall a time when the words “elite” and “Raymond Felton” were ever uttered in a conversation. Back in February, an anonymous NBA executive hit the nail on the head when describing the
Cousin Terio lookalike point guard:
“Felton is the worst starting point guard in the NBA. I’d take 10 college point guards and about 30 NBA backups over him right now.”
If I was approached to comment on Raymond Felton’s basketball ability, it wouldn’t have to be anonymous. There’s enough video on YouTube backing up my opinion of his sub-par play. I’m just glad I won’t be seeing him yawn in any more huddles, and am excited to see what else Phil Jackson has in store this off-season for the New York Knicks.
