Tyson and Kimberly Chandler lend a helping hand to victims of Hurricane Sandy
As an athlete, there is a certain level of responsibility to the city in which you play. It usually involves winning (duh), being fan-friendly, and being an asset to the community. Sometimes, though, the latter takes on unexpected meaning.
When Hurricane Sandy had her way with the eastern seaboard, she left devastation, inconvenience, and great loss. New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler and his wife, Kimberly, not only took notice, they took action.
The couple visited the Far Rockaways neighborhood of Queens, New York and decided to start the Rebound for Rockaway/Rebound for New York campaign to raise money and collect supplies for those in need.
Watch video of Tyson and Kimberly visiting ‘The Rockaways.”

While the Celtics have taken time to develop chemistry and finally get above .500 with a 4-3 record, the New York Knicks have gotten off to a quick start and remain the only unbeaten team with a 5-0 record. They are off to a fast start and seemingly have fit their 7 new players into the chemistry of the team without a hitch. But is it fools gold?
One of the questions that the...

For Thanksgiving this year, I will say that I am thankful that Rasheed Wallace is back in my life. This is why it's important that Rasheed continues to play basketball, even if its for 10 minutes per game because no one else can bring this must confusion and awesomeness rolled into one than the Ball Don't Lie himself.
I kind of like the nickname Aflac...
