At first Chandler praised Love’s offensive game by saying the T-Wolves’ big man can stretch the floor, but when asked about how the Knicks could exploit Love’s defense, Chandler threw out the zinger.
“He can’t play D!” Chandler said of Love with a smile.
Though Chandler was sort of messing around, he’s not wrong. Though Love is a versatile offensive player, he struggles defensively and is among the worst defenders around the basket for a big man.
Then again, pretty much every team in the league could say the same thing about the Knicks — they have a few guys who can’t play defense either!
Credit to Chandler on this one — his Knicks prevailed in the game 118-106.
