Tyson Chandler Credits DPOY Award to Knicks Teammates’ ‘Poor Defense’

by May 03, 2012

Tyson Chandler was in a playful mood during the presser to announce his win of the Defensive Player of the Year award, as he jokingly took a shot at his Knicks teammates‘ defense (or lack thereof.) Per the NY Daily News: “Tyson Chandler stepped to the podium, accepted his trophy Wednesday as the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year and thanked his teammates ­­for facilitating the accolade. ‘I would like to thank my teammates because without their poor defense and letting people fly by them I wouldn’t get credit for stepping up,’ Chandler said … ‘It’s been a process,’ Chandler said. ‘We’ve had our ups and downs, but guys are buying in.'”
