1982 – Happy 31st birthday to New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler (@tysonchandler), who is entering his 13th NBA season. The last three seasons have been fantastic for the seven-footer. He was a part of the 2011 champion Dallas Mavericks. Then in 2012, Chandler won the 2011-12 Defensive Player of the Year. Last season, he made his first All-Star Game appearance. The California native also owns the best active true shooting percentage after leading the league in that category the past three seasons.
