I think Felton saw the writing on the wall and started getting really aggressive. The complaints were warranted but having two hurt hands just didnt help so the fractured finger was a blessing in disguise because he could have those injuries healed for the final push.
I think fans are going too extreme in January when we have 3 more months of basketball. There should be time to get the ship righted and make a move at the deadline.
I hope they make a move at the deadline. We need a perimeter player who can play defense,hit open shots and can at least dribble to the hoop when someone is putting pressure on him. Someone like Carlos Delfino.
Also they need a younger big. Sheed,Kurt and Camby are too old and injury prone. We need someone who can contribute when they are out.
