You could say it was a big year for Raymond Felton. After signing with the Knicks last summer, he became a co-captain alongside free agent signee, and fellow Class of 2002 friend, Amar’e Stoudemire. Leading the charge, Felton and STAT turned a team full of role players into a playoff squad, while franchise executives continued to plot their next move. And it was this next move that sent Felton â€“ along with three other Knicks starters â€“ packing in a trade for Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups. But before that trade, we got up with Ray in late January for this shoot in New York City’s Flatiron District for Dime #63 with photographer Chad Griffith. With a style that he describes as “simple, but with a little country swag,” Ray spent a few hours with us for the following fashion spread, all the while talking to Dime correspondent Erin Sharoni about hoops, sneakers and music.
