Chandler on the young Lakers
Tyson Chandler spent this season with the Los Angeles Lakers and he is convinced that the team has the potential to turn around the situation and be better in the coming years.
Chandler said he's very high on the Lakers young core, after noting that it takes time to develop and win in the NBA: "It’s a great crop, great group of young men who really know how to play the game. They have big-time potential. They’re nowhere near (what) they’re capable of."
