Raymond Felton plans on making Knicks fans forget all about Linsanity.
“I am a competitor, I am a point guard just like he is, so do I think I am better? Of course, I am going to say that,” Felton said. “I think I am better than any point guard.That's the way I am supposed to think. But at the same time it's nothing personal between me and Jeremy. But people are going to make it about that. I am fine with that.”
“I wasn't at the weight I [would] normally be in. I am not making no excuses, it was a lockout, I understand that. I am the first one to say, I wasn't in shape,” Felton said. .. . “I am hearing from everybody, he wasn't in shape last year. I played in the league seven years, about to be eight, came in out of shape one year and that's all everybody wants to talk about. They don't talk about what you did good. They talk about when you do something bad. I look forward to this year and shutting up everybody's mouth.”
Felton said he was “pretty upset” at the situation when he was dealt to the Nuggets, but is thrilled to be returning to the Knicks.After Anthony was the reason he had to leave New York, the two will now be teammates in the Garden.
“(This team) is good enough for the Finals. This is a contending team without a doubt,” Felton said. “That's the way I am supposed to feel, I think a lot of people should feel the same way. The thing I am excited about is I have so many options: ’Melo at one end, J.R. Smith on the other, Amar’e (Stoudemire) on the screen-and-roll or on the elbow, Tyson (Chandler) at the rim. There are so many things you can work with.”
