The New York Knicks got off the snide a few nights ago when they defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves and Kevin Love.
Knicks center Tyson Chandler, going into halftime, was stopped by MSG cameras and gave a quick hitting interview before he made his way into the locker room.
Asked what he could do in regards to his mismatch with the Timberwolves star, Chandler suggested he was going to go at Love because Love ‘can’t play defense‘.
Chandler did have a point as he scored more than his season average, hitting 6 of 8 shots in the process. Though the point didn’t sit well with Love, who had a very blunt response for Chandler, completely filled with expletives.
Kevin Love, in response to Tyson Chandler's comments about his defense: "F*** him. I don't give a s***."

Now, in all fairness, both Chandler and Love are good friends so this was likely nothing more than some good natured ribbing. Chandler’s response on camera seemingly had a bit of a rye smile and we don’t know how serious Love was in his response, though, was likely just joking around.
