VRaymond Felton says he was so disheartened by his mid-season trade from the New York Knicks to the Denver Nuggets two seasons ago that it made him sick. Felton was part of the monstrous trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks in February 2011. Felton admitted his feelings about the deal to the New York Post on Saturday, the day before the Knicks were set to face the Nuggets at Madison Square Garden. “I was sick,” Felton said on Saturday. “I never wanted to leave New York. At the same time, I had to do my job.” Felton had signed with the Knicks as a free agent before the 2010-2011 season, so he was only with the team he chose for a few months before being dealt elsewhere. Then, in Denver, Ty Lawson saw more minutes than him at the point guard position. He asked to be moved after the season, and he was traded to Portland. Felton got a chance to re-do his stint with the Knicks when he signed with them over the summer as a free agent. He had a lot of expectations because he was replacing Jeremy Lin, but he never backed down from the comparisons. So far things have gone well. Felton is having a strong season, and the Knicks are leading the Eastern Conference with a 14-5 record.
