New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler will receive his championship ring tonight for his part in helping the Dallas Mavericks win the 2010-11 NBA Championship, according to ESPN New York.

"It's been a moment I've been waiting for really since we won," Chandler told ESPN New York.

"Coming back in this gym was an amazing feeling, just remembering the practices we went through to get to the championship," Chandler said. "It brought back a lot of memories and a lot of motivation. ... It's given me motivation for the second half of the season to definitely get my team over the hump."

The Mavericks will hold a small ceremony today prior to the Knicks-Mavericks game at American Airlines Center.
