Tyson Chandler was on the B.S. Report yesterday and of course talked lockout, the Mavs title and a few other things we all probably don’t care a ton about. But Bill Simmons asked him about his experience on Team USA in the World Championships last summer, including who surprised him the most. And his answer itself was a bit surprising.
“I will say that Kevin Durant surprised me the most. I didn’t realize, that at 6-10, he can handle the ball as well as he can. And also, how he’s built for that moment. I thought he was a great scorer — I watched him in college, I watched him in high school — I always thought he was a great scorer but I always thought he was a little light.
But I mean he proved everything that I doubted about him wrong and showed me more. Then I got a chance to be around and understand who is and I mean he’s one of the best, I’ll say kids because I’m a little older now, but he’s one of the best kids you could ask for in this league. He has an incredible spirit, he just wants to play the game. He’s not worried about anything else, not worried about the accolades. He just loves the game of basketball.”
