Getting defensive: Love gives profanity-laced response to Chandler


Tyson Chandler, you're on the clock.

The Knicks toppled the Timberwolves, 118-106 on Wednesday at Target Center, and during a halftime interview Chandler took a shot at Kevin Love by saying Love can't play defense. Today, according to Phil Ervin of FOX Sports North, Love fired back with a nasty response.

The second tweet from Ervin is important because Chandler and Love's personal attacks might be partly in jest. They first met when Chandler was a potential lottery pick as a high school senior in California. Love, who was in the sixth grade at the time, wound up being Chandler's ball boy at a prestigious prep invitational.

They then became friends while playing for Team USA during the 2012 Summer Olympics.

It's an interesting relationship, based on Love's seemingly vicious response, but we'll have to wait to see if either star clears the air.
