Chandler Says LeBron 'Greatest Nearer Since Nowitzki' After Lakers Beat Timberwolves

  • Spurs at Phoenix Suns

Tyson Chandler made his Lakers debut Wednesday night, and some in the National Basketball Association reportedly believe that Phoenix Suns interim general manager James Jones allowed the veteran center to head to Los Angeles (via buyout) early in the season as something of a favor to longtime former teammate LeBron James.

The Lakers' defense is 18.3 points per 100 possessions worse when McGee is off the floor, meaning Chandler's role, as well as his skillset, could prove to be a good fit with Los Angeles.

"Hopefully it's nothing serious", Walton said. Former league MVP Rose produced a stunning display, scoring 31 points, including 7-for-9 from three-point range, and narrowed the gap to one with just a minute left. No, the Lakers haven't chose to fire Luke Walton or anything like that, but the team did add veteran center Tyson Chandler in recent days.

That has proved slightly underwhelming given the marquee signing of LeBron James in the summer.

The 114-110 win brought their early season record to an nearly respectable 5-6 to stand 10th in the Western Conference, but it was not guaranteed until the final seconds of the game.

Jimmy Butler added 24 for the Timberwolves, who dropped to 4-8 and remained winless on the road this season.

The Lakers do have defensive issues and that was clear after the first 11 games. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain by adding an experienced, smart, and composed veteran to their lineup-especially at the center position.

If Ball is unable to play versus the Kings, Rajon Rondo will start in his place. Tyson Chandler also made his Lakers debut and was a huge presence, but we will get to that later.

Jones played with James in Miami, and followed him to the Cleveland Cavaliers late in his career.

While other key players Pascal Siakam had 21 points, Kyle Lowry 16 points and Serge Ibaka 14 points. "I just want to take pressure off him".
