Raymond Felton Says He Doesn’t Need Help Guarding Derrick Rose

Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose is dealing with a sore neck, but he’s still a handful and no one in the League can check him alone. Raymond Felton thinks he can, and will have a chance to test that theory in a nationally-televised showdown tonight. Per the NY Post: “With Raymond Felton’s hamstring a concern, (Mike) Woodson surely will want (Iman) Shumpert to guard Rose at times. Felton departed for the locker room after clutching his left hamstring when he landed badly in the second half (Wednesday night.) He later returned to the game. Felton admitted the hamstring could be a lingering issue. He missed two preseason games because of it. ‘It can be,’ Felton said. ‘Hopefully tomorrow it’s not that sore and doesn’t hinder me that much. I’ll be on the court. I’m a warrior. Hopefully it goes away,’ [...] Felton took offense when asked if he may need help with Rose. ‘He puts his clothes on just like I put mine on,’ Felton said. ‘I’m looking forward to the game. I‘m not handicapped. I don’t need no help.’”

    The real question is who will guard the team cafeteria from Raymond Felton

  • LLC#12

    “He puts his clothes on just like I put mine on” He probably fits into his a little better Raymond.

  • danpowers

    the headline is misleading. he clearly said ” I don’t need no help.” check the grammar, he is actually calling out that he needs help

    You’re not insinuating that Raymond is rotund, are you?

  • underdog

    I guess he realized it’s hopeless, and help would be futile.

    Just like:

    Greg Oden doesn’t need a knee brace
    Dwight Howard doesn’t need a PR agent
    Andrea Bargnani doesn’t need help outrebounding Kevin Love
    MWP doesn’t need his NBA salary since he has his rap career
    Monta Ellis doesn’t need to pass more
    Javale McGee doesn’t need someone telling him which basket to shoot on

  • dannyb

    He probably also gets less winded when he’s putting his shoes on.

    And the other day D Rose floats it in front of his face for the win (not to mention it happens with the defensive help of Chandler).

  • Stepfan Raiford


  • Smits#45

    Chandler got in the way. If he didn’t interfere Felton would’ve blocked that shot……………
