Did ex-teammate do LeBron a favor by waiving Tyson Chandler?

Did ex-teammate do LeBron a favor by waiving Tyson Chandler?

The Los Angeles Lakers have officially added Tyson Chandler to the squad, and he will likely back up JaVale McGee at the center position.

Chandler earned the Defensive Player of the Year award after the 2011-12 season, but that was a long time ago. It was just the second miss in nine 3-point attempts for Rose, who had a 50-point game October 31 against the Utah Jazz. Chandler averaged just 0.1 block per game when he was on the Suns, compared to 1.2 blocks in his career.

There were several top performers for the Lakers, LeBron James contributed 24 points and 10 rebounds, Brandon Ingram had 20 points and Kyle Kuzma also added 21 points. So why did the Suns agree to buyout Chandler?

Imelda Marcos sentenced to 42 years for corruption
Graft is a bailable case, however, which means Marcos may be given provisional liberty while she is appealing the conviction. The arrest of Marcos, who was not present at the trial, was ordered immediately after the verdict was read out at.


Following Wednesday's 114-11- win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, another incident was brewing as Rondo referred a derogatory comment towards a reporter. The Kings have lost two straight since winning five in a row. Los Angeles kept the possession alive with offensive rebounds, and Kuzma eventually hit one free throw for a 112-110 lead with 9.2 seconds remaining.

Chandler finished with nine rebounds in 23 minutes in the Lakers' 114-110 win.

The caveat of the Portland game is that the Trailblazers came back from a large deficit to make it close. With Chandler now locked in as the backup center, perhaps the Lakers take another step forward in a tough Western Conference.

California wildfires destroy thousands of structures and force emergency evacuations
Only a day after it began, the fire near the town of Paradise had grown to almost 110 square miles (285 square kilometers). The National Weather Service now predicts heavy winds throughout Friday morning could potentially help spread the blaze .


It had featured recently acquired big man Tyson Chandler playing a big factor on the floor in his first game with the team, which included some pivotal tapout rebounds in the final minute of the fourth quarter.

In between those matchups, he had an off night where he went 1-of-6 from the field but attempted the same number of shots he did against Dallas, and only one less than his performance vs. Toronto.

In a show of support for the move or something like that, the folks at National Basketball Association 2K19 have chose to follow suit and make it so James' character in the game suddenly has a piece of clothing on his head to make sure sweat does not drip into his eyes.
