Tyson Chandler Opens Up on Hurtful Feelings Toward Mavs



The Mavericks’ recruitment of DeAndre Jordan cemented (Tyson) Chandler’s feeling.

“I didn’t feel like I needed to play second fiddle to anybody,” Chandler said. Wednesday before the Suns-Mavericks game. “I felt like I didn’t deserve that. I felt like I’d accomplished a lot in this league and I wasn’t going to play second fiddle to anybody.”

“When all of it was happening, quite honestly, it wasn’t about the money or the offer or anything like that,” he said. “The part I was frustrated with is the legacy I wanted to leave here with this city and organization. At the time, I felt like I was robbed of that. That’s what hurt the most. It took awhile to get over that, to be quite honest.”
