As we all already know, Rashad McCants loves to stir the pot.

Former UNC basketball stars have criticized the former Tar Heels' remarks about the program and former head coach Roy Williams, but now one of McCants' former teammates is taking exception to what he has to say.

Raymond Felton made an appearance on Theo Pinson's podcast, 'Run Your Race,' as the former Tar Heels talked about a variety of topics, including McCants.

Before we get into it, you can view the entire episode below:

Now, to the good part, the part where Felton calls out his former teammate:

Felton clearly has taken offense to what McCants has to say, as him attacking the legacy of coach Williams and what the 2005 National Championship team was able to do was something that didn't sit right with the legendary Tar Heel point guard.

“We won a championship bro what are you talking about…I say he’s a d*ckhead bro...The dude is one of the best scorers I’ve ever played with…but the sh*t he do off the court, I can’t rock with him.”
-Raymond Felton

Now, Felton isn't taking away anything regarding McCants' talent: he goes on to say that he was one of the best scorers he's ever played with. However, he clearly is baffled when discussing how McCants claims that the team hated on him, as he described it as simply "mind-boggling."

Pinson chimes in on how it feels as if McCants was in a different world essentially, as he's the only member of that particular squad that feels the way he does. Felton went on to say that he doesn't wish any ill on his former teammate, but calls him out to stop talking about the UNC basketball program in a negative fashion.

As typically is the case, Pinson's podcast is a must-watch/listen. You're going to want to hear everything Felton had to say during his appearance.
