08:08 AM ET 12.21 | While his six-point, eight rebound stat line on Thursday night may not suggest the added motivation, Kenneth Faried isn't all that fond of the Portland organization. Leading up to the 2011 NBA Draft, Faried said the Blazers told him he was their pick. But when the Blazers came up at No. 21, they surprised many by drafting point guard Nolan Smith out of Duke. Faried went next, at No. 22, to Denver. How does Faried feel about the Blazers? "I ain't going to lie to you: I don't like them," Faried told The Oregonian this week in Denver. "I think it's disrespectful what they did, got my hopes up for nothing. Every time we play them, it's a little extra motivation for me to come out and show them what they missed."

He didn't seem that motivated last night - I watched him and he seemed like his asthma was buggin or something. Glad he fell to Denver.

Several Nuggets have, wasn't sure about him. I always fast forward through the pre-game stuff.

I don't get why he wanted to go to Portland, they already have their all-star PF. He should be happy.

It's not that he wanted to go to Portland, its the fact that they made a promise to him that they were gonna draft him and lied.
