He's not Mike Tyson, but Tyson Chandler apparently wanted to be. He started something with Blazers Center Joel Przybilla during the third qtr of Friday night's game with the Hornets.

Przybilla has a wrist injury and was playing defense on Chandler. Tyson slammed Joel on the injured wrist to nock it away and Przybilla gave him a shove. Chandler then threw an arm into Joel, but Przybilla didn't back down. However, New Orleans went on to win the game.

Saturday, the NBA suspended Chandler for the game with Denver. The Hornets lost the game. Joel was fined 75 Hundred dollars by the league for his part in the Incident.
