Kerby: Raymond Felton Good Bet To Be "This Lockout's Shawn Kemp"

Trey Kerby of The Basketball Jones takes his turn handicapping which NBA player will put on a lot of weight during the downtime and become this lockout's Shawn Kemp. Portland Trail Blazers point guard Raymond Felton comes in with the fourth best odds behind Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Baron Davis and Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu. ----------------------- Raymond Felton (6-1): Kind of a dark horse candidate, but I think this is a good bet. He’s on his third team in a year, he’s got a stocky build and there is less to do in Portland than in New York. Unless Raymond’s an outdoorsman, he might get bored being away from a big city. ----------------------- Back in June, Felton was photographed with a cupcake and it's been all downhill from there. He's been called "roly-poly", he's been accused of having a "potbelly" and he has had it suggested that he should "keep cupcakes to a minimum." He was also tabbed as a favorite to put on weight by the Huffington Post in July. Felton was active on the North Carolina pro-am circuit this summer and was in Texas last week working out with six of his Blazers teammates. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
