After the New York Knicks were ousted by the Indiana Pacers in the playoffs, much blame fell on the head of center Tyson Chandler, who was outplayed by Pacers center Roy Hibbert for the majority of the series. Chandler was recently asked if he felt he had let his team down, to which Chandler responded to the contrary:
“No, no. You can’t let the team down if you give them 100 percent. I gave my teammates everything I had and I’m fine with that.”
It seems like an appropriate response from Chandler, who is basically defending his effort, but given his pitiful performance, you’d be hard-pressed to find somebody that agrees with his assessment of the situation. Chandler’s lackluster performance, along with Hibbert’s play, are the primary reason for the Pacers advancing over the Knicks. Now, the Pacers have a tough task against the defending champion Miami Heat, which some online sportsbooks will give you good odds if you are a Pacers believer.
Either way, it will be interesting to see if Chandler is even on this Knicks roster, as many fans are yearning for change, and he may be the logical piece to move, unless a coaching change may suffice with the Knicks faithful.
