Carmelo Anthony has a sense of what to expect from Raymond Felton.

"This is a special year for him mentally, for him being traded from here and having the chance to come back and prove to people what his game is about," Anthony said. "When he was here in New York, they were rolling. He was having an All-Star year when he was here so to bring him back that was an extra incentive for him to want to do good.

"I know, for him, he has a chip on his shoulder. I've been playing against Raymond since I was 9 years old in AAU basketball so he's been the same since then. He wants to prove everybody wrong."

Felton struggled with his weight throughout the 2010-11 season.
