Tyson Chandler lost a bet to Carmelo Anthony on Super Bowl Sunday, and the result was a very unhappy starting center for the New York Knicks. Anthony bet on his hometown Ravens, while Chandler, a California native, backed the Niners. You know how that worked out.
For the postgame interview following the Knicks' blowout win over the Pistons, Chandler was forced to wear a Baltimore Ravens ballcap with Super Bowl XLVII stitched in purple lettering on the side.
"This is it,'' Chandler said. "I just have to do the interview so the whole world can see it.''
As Amar'e Stoudemire walked into the locker room and saw Chandler addressing the media in a purple and gray Ravens cap, he cackled. "I know, it hurts,'' said Chandler, who grew up in Compton, Calif. a diehard Niners fan.
Anthony would have had to wear a Niners helmet, apparently, which would have been hilarious. The Ravens beat the Niners 34-31 despite being underdogs for the third game in a row.
