I am a competitor, Felton said. I am a point guard just like he is, so do I think I am better? Of course, I am going to say that. I think I am better than any point guard. Thats the way I am supposed to think.

read my first post, your doing it right now, taking one part of his statement out of context, when you see the whole thing you understand what he's actually talking about his mentality and how he approaches the game.. he's not just coming out and saying "im better then any pg"

Gotta love Knicks fans,they defend their players with pride.:laugh:

yeah pride.... it comes with being a fan of a team, not picking one good player and following him wherver he goes... is that dwight in an LA jersey in your avater?

This deserves its own thread because PSD is notorious for taking people's quotes out of context and then having childish debates for hundreds of posts over something that wasn't even said.

Felton didn't say anything any competitor wouldn't say.

So it's juvenile to laugh at ignorance? No wonder the NBA forum is a ****ing joke. I will say it again having a thread to defend the Hamburgler is moronic and asinine. Raymond Felton doesn't deserve his own thread. In all reality, he doesn't deserve hos own roster spot either.

No he really didn't. The fact that Felton said anything at all is stupid. Ask anyone in Portland what they think about the Hamburgler.

The fact he thinks he is better than ANY point guard is so laughable it makes my nuts hurt. We will see next year when he spends more time in the Burger King Drive thru then on the court in the playoffs.

This post is juvenile. You're not even talking about the topic, you just want to call Felton fat. That is pretty dumb. Sorry. The post deserved to be deleted.

Do you have anything useful to say about the topic or are you just drooling at opportunities to misrepresent players?

nothing wrong with what he said. if i was in the nba i wouldnt admit to any one being better then me.

felton was a good pick up for new york. he can play off the ball which compliments melo. when he does have the ball its great news for amare because those two showed great chemistry playing together.

it may end up being the best basketball decision as well for the knicks. plus kidd as backup is not too shabby either.

So because YOU believe it is misrepresenting players that means it is? I think you should take a look at other posts that are far more juvenile. Every day I see posts that are non-nonsensical, asinine and, to use your word...dumb.

Raymond "The Hamburgler" Felton is fat. If I want to make fun of his fatness, as he is the topic, it does relate. AND according to the little rules I agreed to adhere to 6 years ago does not violate PSD (unless the Hamburgler suddenly becomes a poster/member on this site).


NEXT, I didn't misrepresent anything. Actually by not extracting the meaning of what he said is a worse misrepresentation than anything said here about him. His words were and I am quoting the Hamburgler himself on this

I think Im better than any point guard. Thats the way Im supposed to think." No you fat ****ing dickface you're not. You're supposed to look in the mirror realize you're a fat ****ing blob of shittiness and lose some weight. Not think "I'm better than any point guard". WTF would make you think, what evidence do you have?????

So how dare you sir question my making fun of the Hamburgler as (off-topic) I could have sworn he was the topic. THEN to say I'm misrepresenting no I am going off his words. Quit trying to spin everything to put **** in a good light. Sometimes it is what it is.

I was watching the game and Felton didn't say anything out of line.

This is a non story people.

He said that in his mind he has to see himself as the best. It's what pushes him to keep up with everyone else.

Nothing wrong with that.

Move on you negative nancies

I still think what Felton said was dumb though, this guy is coming off a season where he got fat and lazy. Should he really be saying this? If anything he should say "I will set out to prove that im the best PG in the game." which is fine.

Yeah but we're not getting paid millions of dollars to post on here, nor am I making statements like "I'm the best poster on Pro Sports Daily. Even though it is obvious that I am.

But I only have 7,200 posts in 6 years so maybe someone who has more posts could give more insight.

P.S. The Hamburgler is STILL a fat ***. :D

Look we all know Felton is better than Jeremy Lin and about half the PG's in this league. He's definitely not top 5 or top 10. He is the definition of average NBA PG. Nothing wrong with that. He he catches fire at the right time we might be able to make a serious run.

You mean if McDonalds quits serving Big Macs you'll be alright. Felton is not better than Jeremy Lin, not even close. Felton is the definition of a someone who needs to call 1-800-97-jenny.
