You need someone to direct your basketball team? Raymond Felton might be your guy. You need someone to direct you around New York's five boroughs? Felton...not so much.

Never again will the new Knick leave his home without a GPS. (Charlotte Observer)

Raymond Felton Knicks Diary: I'm not in the Carolinas anymore

"The move from Charlotte to New York to play for the Knicks has been an adjustment, but exciting at the same time.
