Raymond Felton yawns in huddle while Knicks fans boo pending loss

Feb 13, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

With the Knicks minutes away from their fifth loss in six games, Raymond Felton was yawning in the huddle.

It looks bad. I won’t argue that. The scene supports all the worst perceptions of the Knicks and Felton.

But Felton played 41 minutes in the overtime loss to the Kings on Wednesday, his second-longest workload of the season. Is it so terrible he’s tired near the end of that outing?

After that yawn, he still assisted a Tim Hardaway Jr. 3-pointer and got an offensive rebound. Let’s not go overboard in criticizing Felton and the Knicks for being lackadaisical.

    A regular diet of donuts and yodels will make you yawn.

      What are yodels? Is that an East Coast thing?

        I’m from Cleveland and I’ve never heard of those.

        I think they’re a snacky-cake/Twinkies sorta thing.

    I think I saw Carmelo blink too. That means he is probably heading to the Clippers…

    C’mon man!

    Dan, I love how you “defend” Felton for yawning… but is it really a defense? YOU posted this, after all. So YOU are making him look bad.

    In my experience, going to a pro basketball game is very conducive to yawning. There’s a ton of breaks and down time without legitimate entertainment and it’s usually really warm in the building.

    Losing so many games bores you to death and yawning is a necessary release of tension.

    I must admit I was surprised when I saw him yawn as if the game was already over…

    Canton bounds team…

  10. cantonbound13 - Feb 13, 2014 at 2:55 PM

    Actually James Dolan’s team.

    The Knicks are garbage.

    Sorry but if you can defend this then you have never played sports at a competitive level.

    Your PG is your floor general. You should not be yawning, you should be ready to close the game out. Which he already blew when he turned the ball over down the stretch. I have no use for this guy. He is a back up PG.

    He wasn’t yawning, he was doing his pre-Dunkin Donuts stretching.
