It was f'd.
It was not f'd.
It was close enough between him and D12. Whatever.
I can smell virgins from great distances.
u cant sleep on Kurt Thomas .... who happen to be the Knicks best post-defender,
and pick n roll artest in the millenium (1999 to 2005).
I recall several seasons where Kurt Thomas were the Knicks only ledgit
frontcourt bigman in a 48 min lineup do to injuries to Camby or Mcdyess.
Kurt Thomas presence on the Bucks, and then the Bulls had those teams
frontcourt bigmen playing above average .. great coaching potential.
I never understood the Chicago Bulls GM Paxon & coach Skiles never hiring
a bigman-coach for rookie Tyson Chandler & rookie Eddie Curry for 4 straight seasons.
The Bulls organization depended on one player "Dale Davis" to teach two high school kids
how to play NBA ball.
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.
This should be merged in his player performance thread
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.
10.2 points a night.
