Tyson Chandler has a habit of barking at refs and wrassling with his opponents, which has resulted in nine technical fouls in 36 games this season. In this lockout season, your thirteenth technical foul (and every two technical fouls thereafter) earns you a one-game suspension. Simply put: Tyson is well on pace to get suspended this year. Because Tyson is very good at sports, everybody would prefer that he not do that. At the Knicks Bowl event, Mark Hale of the Post talked to Chandler about his outbursts:

"I’m not getting any more the rest of the season," Chandler said Friday night during Knicks Bowl 13 at Chelsea Piers.

Then he laughed.

"I talked to Jeremy Lin and all of that, and he’s working on calming me down," Chandler said. "I’m going to have to calm myself [down]. I’ve been spending some time with Jeremy Lin in chapel and everything’s fine."

1. That would be good. Thanks, Jeremy.

2. "Then he laughed" is clearly the best part of that.

3. Amar'e Stoudemire adds, later in the article, that he thinks he's "rubbing off" on Chandler. Recall that Amar'e came one tech short of a suspension last year (and would have gone all the way if he didn't have a couple rescinded).

4. Chandler wasn't allowed to bowl because of his wrist injury. And we wonder why he's so grouchy on the court!

Woosah, Tyson. Woosah.
