Raymond Felton yawns in huddle while Knicks fans boo pending loss

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.
