Richman: Blazers G Raymond Felton Took Too Much Blame

Portland Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton was savagely torn apart by a panel of writers in Wednesday's "You Be The GM" discussion on OregonLive.com. Mike Richman writes in defense of Felton. --------------------------------- Felton probably shouldered too much of the blame for a difficult Blazers season. Gerald Wallace was awful for stretches, Crawford never really got it all together, Wesley Matthews struggled with his shot early and Nicolas Batum never had a defined role. Was it fair that most of the ridicule from fans and media alike seemed to be directed toward Felton? Nope. But with expectations as high as they were when Felton arrived he needed to at least tread water and get the team into the postseason, not be the catalyst -- real or perceived -- for a sinking ship. --------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
