About Tyson Chandler:
The basketball world has known about Tyson Chandler ever since the unusually tall nine-year-old was recruited by a local coach in San Bernardino, California. The entire world has known his name ever since the Compton Dominguez high school freshman was profiled on 60 Minutes. And ever since he was taken as the second pick in the 2001 NBA Draft, Tyson Chandler has worked to become a force on the greatest basketball stage in the world.
In his nine years in the NBA so far, he has done just that. He’s been an active participant in the NBA’s Read to Achieve program, and while in Chicago and New Orleans worked extensively with youth programs and in the community to renovate outdoor basketball courts, work to combat teen violence, help rebuild homes destroyed by hurricane Katrina, and more.
Tyson completes his first season in NYC as one of the best big men in the game, and looks to replicate the hard work and leadership that brought renewed hope to the Dallas Mavericks faithful in 2010, who believed that Tyson was the key to bringing a title to the “Big D.” And they were right.
