Maybe it's time for him to retire.
Maybe his body just can't take it anymore.

Chandler is pretty damn solid. But that's also the most valuable part of his game.

Brook Lopez needs to get consideration. The Nets are letting opponents average 8 more points without him in the lineup and he is blocking nearly 3 shots a game. The numbers prove that he is a very solid defender.

By far, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, and Tyson Chandler make the biggest defensive impact in the NBA.

The Lakers are terrible defensively, but that doesn't mean Dwight Howard isn't an all-world defender. It means the Lakers are lazy and poorly-coached.

What? Did you even watch Dwight with the Magic? He should have been MVP, not Derrick Rose. He changes a ridiculous amount of shots.

He's just dealing with a temporarily dysfunctional team coached by a clown.
