Raymond Felton of the New York Knicks understands that the team needs to work harder and play better in order to move along this season. The Knicks are currently 2-4 and some of the players, including Felton, know what they have to do to change that. According to ESPN,
“I’m upset with myself and I’m upset with us as a team,” Felton said. “We’ve just got to play harder, I’ve got to play harder. It starts with me, I’m the point guard. I’m the guy on the ball [and] I’ve got to play harder, it starts with me. Everybody else has to play harder as well. … It’s going to start [Wednesday night].”
Felton had a rough night against San Antonio, going 3-for-10 with seven points. Spurs point guard Tony Parker scored 17 points and had six assists.
It could be a long season for the Knicks if they can’t step their game up and compete at a high level like they did last year. 2-4 is not the way any team wants to begin their season, especially when they’re predicted to be a real competitor come the playoffs.
