While a lot of us are disputing whether or not Tyson Chandler is a good fit for Dallas, or if it was a good move going for him, none of can deny how awesome it is when a Maverick gets us on the news!
It was a USA Basketball Scrimmage on Thursday, played in front of a decent crowd in attendance at the World Basketball Festival.
The Situation is like this:
It is sudden death overtime. For any who do not watch High School basketball or understand what it means, it's simple. The first team to score wins! The score is tied 47-47 after a 24 minute regulation period.
The tip is won by Tyson, and Rondo comes up the floor. A missed jumpshot leaved the ball hanging in the air, and Chandler smacks it back to the 3 point line where it is controlled by the Blue team,at the left wing. A defensive mishap leaves Chandler open down low, the ball is tossed, and boom! Alley-oop throwdown for the win! Blue team wins 49-47. I guess you guys were right in saying all of his success comes from the Alley-oop. He needs to thank Jackie Moon for inventing the very thing that has led to his NBA career!

It's not that amazing of a play, but hey, it is a Mav in the news, and a good win from a hustle play by Chandler. In these boring months between the playoffs and the regular season this is the kind of news that gets me fired up for the season. I for one am kind of against the Chandler trade, but if he can bring the energy he brought to that play to Dallas, welcome home Ty!
