Even though the Knicks won both games, Nikola Peckovic pretty much son'd Tyson in both games.
The way the dude sprints down the court, gets position, seals his man off and just waits -- moves-- goes back and waits, and can finish effectively with both hands off of either block...
I don't wanna make it sound like I'm disrespecting what Tyson means to the team, but I just envision what the offense would look like if the D had to worry about a low post player who has size, strength and a few go-to moves. While that guy can also defend his position on D.
A two-way player at the 5 along with Melo...damn..
The real question is, is there any good reason to keep him. We did go on that mean winning streak without him.

He's overrated. He gave us an amazing season when Lin was here. After Lin's departure, Tyson really regressed defensively. Offensively he's a great lob option. Supringingsly hits a jumper out of no where like twice this season.
I don't know how far the Knicks can go depending on Tyson to hold down protecting the rim and being their main rebounding when he has problems staying healthy and he's not even a shot blocker in the first place.
Knicks keeping Tyson is just a big sign they're settling to be a playoff team, not a championship team.
Tyson's best days are long gone.
Why not put a trade package together with Chandler, Novak and perhaps Felton or future picks to create space to Pick up Al Jefferson or Andrew Bynum, who both can score in the block? For PG we move Shump to PG, or pick up either CP3, DJ Augustine, Mo Williams, Nate Robinson, Jose Calderon via from Free Agency, or trade for Rondo or even Greivis Vasquez
Why stop there? Why not just add Lebron,Durant and Rose? I mean it's not like we can't just have anyone we want

they aren't free agents this summer nor do they play center besides I d rather beat them for the Championship in New York!
Let me make the arguement that Chandler is over rated. He did not deserve to be all nba defense, since Marc Gasol was DPOY and was on defense 2nd team...tell me how that happens two years in a row.

He refuses to work on a post game which continues to hamper us when we struggle scoring. Chandler is 7'2 and can't even work on a hook shot of any kind its realy sad. So basically whenever Felton is not driving to the hoop, Chandler becomes non existant on offense.
He needs to be motivated on rebounding, when we saw Woodson sit down with him leading to a few 20 rebound performances.
The playoffs exposed Chandler and he was really a non factor. Hibbert made him his b*tch and outrebounded him as if CHandler was 6'2 instead of 7'2.
RIght now I would trade Chandler while his value is high and before he starts to get injured a lot. He was injury prone years ago and has had some luck no geting hurt even though he plays reckless.
He is getting paid too much to simply be an athletic alley oop center/ ra ra kind of guy. I would pick Noah, Hibbert, Verajao over him in the East because they can change a game based on their hustle and skill. Chandler is just an athletic bruiser that is limited.
I would rather trade him right now.
Felton would prob stay here until his contract expires since we traded him prematurily for Melo. He is also a solid backup PG if a better one comes along. Chandler and Novak should be moved but that is a lot of salary.

Al Jefferson can do some damage but he wont help on defense. As bad as Chandler was on defense this year, Jefferson is worse. I would prefer a pure Center that has some post game.
Pekovic is a good pick up. I would trade Chandler for him. He is a big dude that knows how to play like a center. Tyson gets bullied by bigger centers like Hibbert. I dont think Pekovic would have been man handled by Hibbert in a playoff series.

I wouldn't hesitate to trade him, either. What's a good option out there for replacement?
Ok, Felton, isn't the best PG...but at least he tries...he'd be the best back up PG in the league imo. Chandler on the other hand is way over rated and we should try to package him for Asik. I'd do Beverly and Asik for Chandler in a heart beat. Wonder if the $$$ match....I don't see why Houston would want another Center though. Imagine Chandler as D12's backup
