10:59 AM ET 10.05 | Tyson Chandler seems to be still seething over getting outplayed by the 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert, who had his coming-out party in last season's second-round playoff series at Chandler's expense. Chandler averaged just six points and six rebounds in the series. "I vowed to myself I would never let that happen again," Chandler said Friday. "I would never let my team down and be in that situation again." In Chandler's defense, he was coming off a neck injury and strep throat that caused him to lose 12 pounds. "I've got to make sure that doesn't happen," Chandler added, referring to his second-round performance. "It's not about him. It's about me. My job is to stop whoever is in front of me and outplay them, no matter who it is. I've got to look at it like motivation, like I got my **** kicked. So next time I'm not going to let that happen."

Tyson Chandler is a world champion. Hibbert is nothing until he proves that he is something. Until then people should give respect where respect has been earned.
