Etiwanda grad joins Mavs with ‘chip on his shoulder’

Etiwanda High School’s Darren Collison expressed his displeasure upon arriving in Dallas, where he was traded after two years with the Indiana Pacers, but not about the trade. Collison is unhappy with the number of postseason victories he has been a part of.

“The chip, for me personally, is just about not being able to win in the playoffs,” Collison told “Being knocked off by Miami, being knocked off by Chicago my first year in Indiana, I still have that nasty taste in my mouth. I want to bring some of that here. Even though they have so many more accomplishments here, I definitely want to bring my game and the chip that I have on my shoulder here.”
