People act like every year the top 5 picks should be franchise players and the top 10 at least all-stars...

Well, that's not reality. There simply isn't that kind of talent to go around. People need to adjust expectations.

He's not a bust. He's arguably the best defensive center in the L and gets you double digit boards. Thats extremely valuable.

This thread and those like it are why I don't come here as much any more. If you think you need to be a scorer to be a player you are dumb. From his 4th season (when he was 22) until now he has been in the top 25 in the league in RAPM every year (except for 2 injury plagued seasons). He has led the league in TS% the last three seasons.

http://stats-for-the-nba.appspot.com/

He is, literally, among the best role players ever. He was a huge part of the Hornets surge to the 2 seed in the incredibly tough West. He was the defensive anchor for the NBA Champions and a big reason why LeBron couldn't get into the lane. He turned the Knicks into a defensive juggernaut.

If Chandler is a bust, what does that make Beasley?

Tyson Chandler is no defensive anchor and he never deserved the dpoy. If he was this bit shit defensive anchor the Knick's wouldn't be rated in the latter half in the league defensively.

No he isn't a bust and the fact that the op even started this thread means he doesn't understand what the term bust means.

And anyone that says he isn't a defensive anchor is a blind fool.

The man is a champion (was a big factor in DAL winning, look at them since he left and look at NY especially defensively), reigning DPOY, and was just named an all star. He's currently putting up 12 PPG (while leading the league in FG%), 11 RPG, and is the defensive anchor on a high seed playoff squad.

This is a silly thread.

A defensive anchor in a team not even in the top 15 teams defensively: fuuuucking impressive.

His Impact speaks beyond "Bust"
I don't see any way you can even argue that he WAS a bust.

The Knicks have been riddled with injuries all season. They've had like 3 or 4 different starting PFs and their backcourt has been decimated. Just look at what their defense did last year when Chandler won DPOY.

Some good players in this draft.
None of those were ever franchise players. So yeah, that was a shitty draft class when you're looking at Top 3 picks to be franchise players. Gasol was close in Memphis but never won a single playoff game there and Randolph was a black hole for much of hid career until the last couple of seasons.

Let's be reasonable, that's a lot to ask of a Knicks hater.

This is a silly thread.

They blew up the whole Mavs team, Terry gone, Kidd gone, DeShawn is gone, Novak is gone, and lots of others. Dirk knee.

You can't blame Dallas collapse because Tyson Chandler left, by no means.

All-Star means zip. Fans vote for who they like, not who plays, look at Yao Ming for simple proof.

I ain't bashing Tyson, he's one of the best centers in the NBA. But none of what you said is valid reasons except for he's tough D anchor on a playoff squad so far this year.

Sure. Why not? This is ISH, where championship defensive anchors and DPoYs are draft busts.
