A Tale of Two Point Guards: Felton Yawns, Ennis Wins
Shortly after Tyler Ennishit a game-winning 3-pointer to lift Syracuse over Pitt, Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was caught on video yawning during overtime of the Knicks 106-101 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
And there you have it…Arguably the best point guard in New York State winning a high-level college game with a big-time shot.
And arguably the worst starting point guard in the NBA yawning during OT.
The great irony, of course, is that DraftExpress.com has the Denver Nuggets selecting Ennis at No. 9 in the NBA Draft with the Knicks’ pick.
And oh by the way, Syracuse has four more wins (24) than the Knicks (20).
