Kevin Love's response to Tyson Chandler's trash talk is surprisingly profane
The Love-Chandler "feud" suddenly became R-rated today.
At halftime of the New York Knicks' eventual Wednesday night victory over the Timberwolves, Knicks center Tyson Chandler was asked how he planned to approach his matchup with Kevin Love in the second half.
"Oh, go at him. He can't play D," Chandler replied, with a smirk on his face.
Here's the video:
During a media availability this afternoon, Kevin Love was asked to respond. Suffice it to say either his mother or Rick Adelman now needs to wash his mouth out with soap.
Here's what K-Love said:
Kevin Love, in response to Tyson Chandler's comments about his defense: "F*** him. I don't give a s***."-- Phil Ervin (@PhilErvin) March 7, 2014
K-Love profanity wasn't meant to be taken seriously, however:
Keep in mind Love and Chandler are buds thanks to USA basketball.-- Phil Ervin (@PhilErvin) March 7, 2014
Again, Kevin Love and Tyson Chandler are friends, guys. There's probably at least a little jest behind both men's words.-- Phil Ervin (@PhilErvin) March 7, 2014
But still, K-Love, please, as a team leader, clean it up. After all, what if Ricky's innocent ears overhear such vulgarity?
