Tyson Chandler Handling the Rescinded Trade Well

Tony ArnoldineCorrespondent INovember 1, 2016

Hornets center Tyson Chandler was traded from New Orleans to Oklahoma City earlier this week, but the trade was rescinded after Chandler failed his physical due to a toe injury. Other reports speculate it had something to do with his asthma condition.

You would think something like this would create animosity, but Chandler doesn't seem to mind.

From his blog entry on the subject:

The next day was just comical. I walk into the locker room and say, "Ya'll couldn't get rid of me!"

And everybody starts busting up laughing.

I did the skit from Training Day when Denzel Washington was like, "King Kong ain't got nothing on ME!" Everybody was laughing and having a good time.

With my teammates it's all love. They welcomed me back like a brother.

With management, it's always going to be a little funny because these guys just tried to trade me away and I got bounced back to them. I'm sure that will be pretty awkward.

But for me, it doesn't matter because I play for my teammates, myself, my family, and the fans. That's all that really matters to me and that's all that will ever matter.
