Raymond Felton repays parents with NBA riches

In the two months since the Charlotte Bobcats made Raymond Felton the fifth overall pick in the NBA draft, he's showered his parents with gifts to thank them for getting him where he is today. "We all dreamed about this moment, just to be able to give back to your mom and dad," Felton said. "We can never give back to them what they've given to us for all of our years. But just trying to start, just by telling your mom and dad they don't have to work if they don't want to, or take them home a brand new car, something they've never had. It's just a wonderful feeling." (Salisbury Post)
