Tyson Chandler Interview
By INSIDEHOOPS.COM 

InsideHoops.com's Jeff (6'3") met up with Tyson Chandler (7'1" - of Dominguez High School in Compton) in Los Angeles recently, and considered challenging him to some one on one, but instead decided it would be easier on Tyson just to have a talk and share some thoughts.

Note that we'll profile Chandler and all top high school and college players after the NBA season is over, with NBA Draft and NCAA coverage.

Jeff: You're going pro, right?
Tyson: (smiling) Ummmm......
Jeff: It's not official but...
Tyson: It's not official... I just don't want to say... I don't want to draw onto any attention to my things that we don't really need.
Jeff: How have people's attitudes changed towards you now that you're the man and possibly entering the draft?
Tyson: (laughs) Umm, I mean, you have a whole lot of friends, a lot of cousins come out of the woodwork, a lot of family, I mean, it's quite different, but I just try to stay to myself, stay to my family, my inner circle, and to others I pay no attention.
Jeff: If you could play for any team, who would it be?
Tyson: It don't matter to me.
Jeff: Ok, who's your favorite team - a hometown team I assume?
Tyson: The Lakers. The Clippers now, though, I love the Clippers. Lakers and Clippers. I love both of them.
Jeff: Who are your favorite players? Who do you love to watch?
Tyson: KG. Kevin Garnett, that's my favorite. Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace, are two great players, I love watching those two play.
Jeff: Ok, and when you do eventually go pro, what might be running through your head while you're standing on stage being drafted?
Tyson: Just that, you know, I finally achieved a little something. You see, but I mean it's not too much of an achievement if you go in there and don't do anything, so, it's going to be a real blessing, it's going to be a lovely day, but I mean right after that I gotta be ready for the season.
Jeff: And who's your role model in life?
Tyson: My mother. She's the one that keeps me strong and makes sure I stay well grounded, so I have to say my mother.
