Haynes: Felton Claims McMillan Comments "Taken Out Of Context"

257

Here we go with Round 3 regarding comments made by Portland Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton following a Thursday night loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Round 1: Felton told Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com that he wasn't feeling the confidence from coach Nate McMillan and that it's difficult to play well when he is going "in and out of games." Round 2: McMillan told Jason Quick of The Oregonian that Felton denied making the comments in a meeting on Friday. Round 3: Felton now claims his comments were taken out of context in a statement to Haynes. --------------------- CSNNW.com stands by the story as published. This afternoon, Felton had this to say, "Last night was an emotional time for me and some of the quotes made to Chris Haynes were taken out of context by another reporter. I met with coach McMillan today and I want everyone to know that I am fully behind him and my coaching staff and they are in full support of me and my teammates." --------------------- Earlier this week, Felton also contrasted McMillan's system with that of New York Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni. --------------------- "Look at Jeremy Lin," Felton said. "Some people’s systems are for players. D’Antoni is one of those coaches where people excel in his offense. He’s a great offensive coach. "But I’m not going to sit here and knock anything Coach Nate has done. We’re all fighting together, trying to figure this thing out. Being his point guard, I’m with him." --------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
