Well, Felton is also new. Both Crawford and Felton were off-season acquisitions. The Blazers traded Andre Miller for Felton.
Felton and Crawford were a big part of the problem in the first half of the season when they lost a bunch of close games. They were missing wide open looks. A couple of the games I watched were disgusting. Aldridge got doubled, kicked it out, the ball moved to the open guy on the perimeter and ....clank. Even when they were above .500 there was a problem with the consistency of the outside shooting.
