Litel: Raymond Felton Admits Conditioning Issues, Talks Rumors

Stephen Litel of HoopsWorld.com with some trade-related quotes from Portland Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton. -------------------------- "It’s one of those things where I didn’t really come in the way that I normally would shape-wise because you have them telling you, ‘We might start in January. Nope, we’ll start in February.’ All of a sudden, they tell you that you have to report to your team within a week and it’s one of those seasons where you can’t control it, you can’t do anything about it." ... "I’ve told the guys, ‘When your name is in trade rumors, it means teams like you.’ Teams know your potential and know your game, so it’s not necessarily a bad thing all the time. It’s good to know there are teams out there that know your game and are willing to take you on their team, but on the flipside of it, you can’t really get into all of it because it can mess with your head. I’ve seen it happen with a lot of guys." ... "I definitely don’t read that stuff," said Felton. "You’d be amazed at all the stuff that gets written, so I don’t really get into all that." -------------------------- Blazers president Larry Miller provided a similar explanation for Felton's slow start in an interview last week. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
