The problem with Felton is... LA?

I've attended the past two home games sitting closer than I have before. I have observed something in both games that maybe some of you who sit fairly closely to the court can affirm: I think LA is frustrating Felton with 1) how far out from the block he "posts" up and 2) how he passes out of the post late in the clock.

Last night as I sat on the baseline behind the Blazer's second-half basket I noticed Felton's expressions. It seemed that, whenever he would see Lamarcus try to post up seven feet from the block he would give an exasperated look and pass it in only to have LA dribble it until there's 5 seconds left on the shot clock to pass it out. A few times Felton passed it in, LA dribbled- going nowhere, and passed it out but then would re-post in the same position and demand the ball. I distinctly saw Felton roll his eyes twice when LA did this and pass it in.

It made me wonder if LA's game is difficult for PGs to play with. Maybe the problem with all of our PGs is not that they all suck, but that they're trying to get the ball "in" to a guy who too often posts up way out from the block and who is too indecisive with the ball. And he's the center of our scheme. Maybe that's at least part of what gums up this offense?
