    Loving Chandler's positivity. IMO, the Billups amnesty was worth it to get a leader the likes of The Man Handler. If he backs Sheed as an addition, there's no reason any of us could possibly have to doubt him.

    Thank you, I sorta feel like Kurt Thomas' hoe. I've been shouting him out in every thread, good to see another KT supporter. Green Rep

    Excellent post Kiya. The Knicks lost their respect when they traded Kurt Thomas for QRich and Nate Robinson. Thomas was the glue for this team on offense and defense. The picks he would set (sometimes away from the ball) and his abiliity to stick the mid range jumpshot...Kurt was basically replaced by Eddy Curry, Channing Frye, Antonio Davis, and David Lee. Kurt is just a smarter player then all of them. Because he was never that athletic hes still roughly the same player he was when we traded him. His game seems more effective now then it was 10 years ago and I have seen him within the past 2 years single handedly come off the bench and change the tempo of a game.

    Default How many points do you think Chandler will average this season?

    With three point guards already clicking with him, guess how much.

    Hopefully he'll do more than dunks, but if this is gonna be the norm, that's all he might need to do along with hitting free throws efficiently.

    I really want to say 13ppg, but I think it will be the same as last year.

    For all the increase we got in point guard depth, we also have to great and good back up centers in Camby and Thomas. This will mean less playing time for Chandler as our stars minutes will be managed this year.

    Amare will probably get a slightly bigger role in the offense too.

    As mentioned by RJ, with these PGs the sync is already there. He's played with Kidd and Felton in Dallas and Charlotte respectively, and after 2 games alongside Pablo, it's clear that the league's oldest rookie in history is as capable a P&R passer as Chandler is a pick setter.

    Given that, I believe he'll have some games with 20+ totals like last year, and some games with sub 10 point outings.

    Bring STAT in to the P&R free-for-all this team'll be feeding off and that brings Tyson's PPG down from its potential, leaving me thinking he will average 11.5-13PPG.

    For the sake of a definitive prediction, I'll go with 12.6.

    As you'll see in my soon to be released Knicks mix, some of the Knicks most beautiful plays last season were the connection of Melo passing to Tyson on the break. We see more of that, and I'll go so far as to say he's capable of a 16PPG season.

    I'm with NicksKnicks.

    10 PPG. maybe even less. With STAT and felton getting more buckets there simply won't be enough touches to go to Chandler. I am hoping he will be able to top his record FG% however.

    10-11, Amare is going to be different this year...shows a lot of ambition to changing what he was last year to what he was when he first started as a Knick. I expect more shot attempts from Amare, so Chandler won't be featured as much...even though he shoots a crazy high FG% and it would be nice to get Tyson more lobs.

    Tyson only worries about scoring when he fells he has too.

    He can score 20 points a game. But when you have to worry about defense and rebounding as much as he does then some games where our offense is clicking he might only get 5 which hurts his average.

    So I really don't think it matters what his average will be. Only that he produces points when we need him to.
