Why Felton May NOT be the Long Term Option...

Don't get me wrong here, Felton is a high quality player, but every night he plays out there just seems awkward. I understand that it is early in the season, and Felton has been bounced around a little, but still. At the start of the season, when most people thought we would be a fastbreak team, Felton seemed like the obvious choice within reason. Now that McMillan has made it clear that we are playing faster, still in a half-court offense, Felton's skills don't seem to be used in the correct way. Since he likes to fastbreak, he tends to push the offense in the halfcourt, which leads to turnouvers. That's a small thing that can be adjusted throughout the season, but the fig one is his mentality. The team is full of hard nosed players. We constantly see people diving on the floor for loose balls, causing havoc. HUSTLE. Raymond works hard, but he seems to move away from potential plays that include hustle and try to get another player to do his dirty work. Then you'll see him flail his arms in frustration and smile in anger. I don't know if he's used to the days as a Bobcat where young Wallace was everywhere on the court at once or if it is his personality, but either way, it doesn't fit the team mentality and sometimes hurts them. I'm not worried about his turnovers, as I think that's just a product of being a youngish, new PG, but I am worried about his personality. He seems like a nice guy, but his mentality on the court has to change.

I'd post a trade here, but the Trade Machine is down so, I was thinking something like Felton and Batum/Wallace for a fitting PG. I don't think we should trade him just yet, but if he doesn't work out after these 66 games then...
