HIS GAME
Pros: Ray Felton has unbelievable quickness and can blow by virtually and defender. He has dynamite athleticism and agility. He is a tremendous passer with great reflexes and will find a teammate for an open basket with the slightest opening in the defence. His court vision is one of his greatest attributes and seems to maintain scoring ability and touch despite not looking for his shot for stretches of the game.

    Cons: Felton is a little undersized and must learn to run a team, getting everyone involved, while being able to dictate the tempo of the game. He has the instincts and ability, but just needs the experience to put it together.
