The time is now for Raymond Felton to step into a leadership role for this Knicks team. Carmelo Anthony is known for leading by example, and Jason Kidd is across the East River coaching the Nets.
That leaves the Knicks in desperate need of a vocal leader; someone to keep the team focused, guide them through adversity, and steady the ship if it falls off course. Felton can use training camp to establish his voice and set the tone for the season to come.
