Tyson Chandler had a special Valentine's Day gift for Raptors coach Dwane Casey when he came to Toronto on Tuesday: an NBA championship ring.
Chandler, now with the Knicks, presented the ring to Casey before Tuesday's game in Toronto. Casey was an assistant coach and Chandler the starting center for the Dallas Mavericks team when they beat Miami in the NBA finals.
Following the player introductions, the scoreboard played a video of Mavericks highlights and messages of congratulation to Casey from Dallas players Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry and Jason Kidd, and Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.
Chandler and Casey then walked to center court and embraced. Casey was joined by his wife and children and presented with the diamond studded ring.

Recap: Dallas Mavericks Vs LA Clippers
Dallas didn’t play terrific D, but packing the paint and trapping Chris Paul made the league’s top offense very beatable. The Clippers — simplistic though their offense may be at times — are so incredibly effective if Paul is given any kind of access to the paint, so the Mavs walled it off (in part by assigning Shawn Marion to cover...
