Raymond Felton has never been the most slender ballplayer, and his time with the Portland Trailblazers were not his best. His work ethic and conditioning were called into question very often - one off season he was photographed holding a cupcake and this became meme bait for Blazers fans.
In a recent interview, Felton unloaded on Rip City saying he and Jamal Crawford were unfairly vilified, and went on a bit of a rant.
“I don’t think that we were the issue because we were not there last year and they were not in the playoffs,” Felton added. “I was kind of upset about that because then you’re trying to kill my character. That’s not what I’m about. That part pissed me off. Now you’re trying to mess with my character? I was kind of upset about that. I’m not a type of cancer in the locker room.’’
Once his words were published the Blazers social media team had a little fun. They posted a link to Felton's rant and then simply trolled him with, "Why so mad Ray?" and attached a photo of his face covered by an angry emoticon.
