With Jason Kidd becoming the Brooklyn Nets' new head coach, Raymond Felton admits he will need to take an elevated leadership role on the New York Knicks, as well as increased pressure to make smart decisions.
“I guess that means I have to step up my game a little but more, be a little bit more of a leader,” Felton said. “It’s just a little more pressure on me I guess."
Felton said he learned a lot from Kidd in their one season together with the Knicks, which ended in a loss in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
“There was a lot of behind the scenes things going on, a lot of talking one on one with me and Melo," Felton said. “Whether it’s on the court or off the court, I learned everything from him. J-Kidd did a lot for our team this year. I wish him the best."
