It took him a while, but Tyson Chandler finally fired back at Phil Jackson.

“I did nothing but try to help the culture there the three years I was there,” Chandler said. “You can say I didn’t live up to whatever, or you didn’t like the way I played or anything. But to ever question who I am and the type of leader I am in the locker room, I don’t even know where that came from.

“I don’t know if Phil put that out there or who put that out there, but to me, that was the ultimate shock. And you don’t have to say that to get rid of me or to trade me. The trade is over.

“So that was a shock to me that I didn’t appreciate.”

Jackson, after completing the trade, said the deal was done, in part, to alter the chemistry of the team.
