Raymond Felton being benched for Jamal Crawford isn't all that shocking, considering Felton is shooting 37 percent from the field and 23 percent from three-point range, and is averaging three turnovers a contest. Felton can disagree with the decision all he wants, but 29 other coaches in this league would do the same thing Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan did.
The timing, though, is a bit awkward. Just a few days ago, Blazers broadcaster and notorious homer Mike Rice was on the airwaves calling out Felton "haters" during a game.
Something tells me that, in this case, the haters are still gonna hate.
