“I just want to prove that I am a player, first and foremost. I can play with anybody and I can dominate any type of game,” Felder said. “I just want to be dominating whether it is scoring, passing, getting steals and rebounding. That just what I wanted to do.”

Felder then talked about DeAndre Liggins coming down to watch him play tonight.

“That’s my guy. We talked early and said he was going to come, I didn’t think would come for real,” Felder said. “That was great!”

The Charge came, saw and conquered the night. Quinn Cook and Kay Felder combined for 65 of the 124 points tonight for the Charge. It is not known how long Felder will be with the Charge, but Felder has made his presence felt already. Charge head coach Nate Reinking said the Charge didn’t have a single practice with Felder yet. However, Felder looked like he’s been with the team for the whole season.

If Felder stays with the Canton Charge throughout the season, Cook and Felder can become one of the most dynamic backcourts in the D-League and in Canton Charge history.
