Many key personnel to the Knicks' success hit the media circuit on Thursday afternoon to discuss the team's impressive 3-0 start.While Jason Kidd and Coach Mike Woodson each made respective afternoon appearances on ESPN 98.7 FM, Raymond Felton rose up bright and early to call in to the "Boomer & Carton" show on WFAN.The point guard talked about how good it felt to be back in the Big Apple for a second stint with the Knickerbockers, and also how strong team chemistry has played a big role in the team's solid early start.But when asked about his struggles with the Blazers last season, Felton lamented he wasn't in the best shape during his one and only campaign in Portland. As the floor general asserted he wouldn't once again fall back into certain lazy habits, Felton also cited his immense amount of motivation to succeed with the Knicks as a factor.What's more, Felton has made an effort to eat right, hiring a personal chef to help play closer attention to better nutrition.Like the former Tar Heel champion, Chef Jerome Brown too hails from North Carolina. A cook for a multitude of stars over the years, Chef Brown is no stranger to NBA players, either. With a passion for keeping these said athletes healthy, he's also cooked for Shaquille O'Neal and has served as a personal chef for former long-time NBA guard Brevin Knight.And now he's teamed up with Felton to help keep the Knicks' guard on the right track nutrition wise. Chef Brown also jumped on "B & C" briefly as well, adding that the floor general has him make "baked chicken wings" on a daily basis.Hiring personal chefs is becoming quite the popular trend in the NBA. Upon his own respective move to the Big Apple, Amar'e Stoudemire added Chef Max Hardy to Team STAT as well, publicly addressing the chef's contributions in positive ways over the past year and a half.To hear Felton's WFAN radio in full (as well as Chef Brown's brief appearance) readers can click here for audio.
