    Default Where do you rank Chandler amongst the NBA elites?

    Can we agree Tyson is in his prime? Had a strong season in Dallas, and has been probably one of the best 3rd guy you can ride with on your team (remember how good Paul/West/Chandler was in NO and in the playoffs?)


    He has an 18.45 PER but I believe his impact go beyond the numbers.

    My C ranking

    1. Howard
    2. Horford
    3. Bynum
    4. Duncan
    5. Noah
    6. Chandler
    7. Nene
    8. Lopez
    9. Bogut
    10. Gasol

    My C ranking

    1. Howard-Perfect.
    2. Horford-To short, but his is nice.
    3. Bynum-Stay healthy.
    4. Duncan-Kinda old, don't you think.
    5. Noah-Can't complain, was my second choice, because he doesn't need the ball, like TC.
    6. Chandler-My #2/3, See Noah.
    7. Nene-Good
    8. Lopez-Not as tough as TC, kinda soft.
    9. Bogut-He's a buck, iv'e never seen the bucks play.
    10 Gasol-He looks ok, but not the defender TC is.

    Horford is better than Chandler...and even an old Duncan is still an impactful player.

    Bogut is top 5 when healthy. IMO

    To me the best big man in NBA is Gasol he scores, rebounds, passes and plays great defence. Over 50% from the field over 80% form the line. Was a main reason that Lakers went to finals 3 straight times - a perfect teammate for Kobe. Don't forget that he guarded Howard in 2009 Finals and outplayed him. Last playoffs he played poorly but entire Lakers team played like crap so it's unfair to judge him by that series against Mavs only.

    I think Chandler is slightly overrated sure he had a good season but can he duplicate it in a team that's not defensive-minded? I hardly doubt that.

    1.Gasol
    2.Howard
    3.Bynum

    I agree, Gasol is underrated. People downrate him because of his style.

    Have u seen Duncan the last few seasons, the guy can hardly move or jump, and i would take TC over horford, because he is a better defender, leader, and he is 3 inches taller.Horford should go to PF were he belongs.Did you see what the Magic did to them a few years ago?, that' because he is to small to play center.TC fits with this team better than any other center, because he doesn't need the rock to be effective.

    Both of the Gasol brothers are underrated and Bynum is overrated until he actually stays on the court and proves he can handle being the focus of the offense.

    I agree that Duncan's impact days are pretty much over. He would have eaten Randolph and Marc Gasol for lunch back in the day.

    Chandler is hard to rate because he had the advantage of playing with top notch PGs. Lets see how his offense holds up without CP3 or Kidd throwing lobs for him.

    You forgot about Gortat, he's definately better than Lopez. Okay, he's less of a scorer, but playing less minutes he averaged 3.3 more rebounds per game. Gortat played three and half year behind Howard and has plenty of talent, I expect him averaging 10+ rebounds and 15+ points this season.

    thanks hah. I think Mark Gasol is incredibly underrated. He is one of the last true centers in the league imo. He is a fantastic low post defender, has a good mid range shot, he can do it all imo. His numbers dropped a bit last season but that was because of Zach Randolph being an absurd rebounder for a forward, on any other team he is a 15/10 center.

    Not anymore. Hes close, maybe 12th or 13th but imo he is getting older and I think this season will be tough for him. His points per game and rebounding are still pretty decent but I feel like his defense has dropped off significantly. Over his career he is one of the best to ever play but the way I thought of this list is, if I had a team, and I got to choose who I wanted at center, who would I pick, and at this moment I would pick all those guys over Duncan at this point in his career.

    Thumbs up

    Tyson Chandler defensive skills as a center rank #2 in the NBA....

    that was enough to lift a non-defensive team (Mavs) to win a Championship trophy.

    Where's Andrew Bogut? Bro there's no way Bargnani is better than him.

    Isn't Duncan more of a PF?
