Camby was quite versatile in his 20's, Chandler is freaking one-dimensional.
Defensively he's right up there with the best, but the guy got no offense, even on team USA he's by far the worst player on offense. To be precise, the only reason coach K selected him was to play defense on the Gasol brothers in the gold medal game, other than that he's totally useless for USA. K-Love and even Anthony Davis looked much much better at center.
Not saying Chandler is a bad player, but we definitely overpaid on him and Camby in his prime would be my starter.
In terms of defense in their primes,
Chandler is definitely better one v one on staying with his man and making things very difficult even without blocking the shot.
Camby is more of a drifter. His one on one defense was always considered sub-par by coaches because he's so interested in just blocking shots. However, his weak side help is off the charts because of this.
Camby is definitely more versatile, but Chandler takes much much better shots which is reflected in their percentages.
My personal opinion? Camby is more talented, Chandler is the smarter player.... Not sure which you'd rather have.
Right now, Chandler. Unquestionably.
DPOY. Where to go from there?
As defensive 5s, there are disparities between their approach.
Ultimately, I think the worth of either boils down to their mental toughness, as the playoffs are when that edge comes under the most scrutiny. Chandler is untouchable by comparison.
For this team, if you wanna know who's better, make the choice of losing one and keeping the other. Same result all round, every time.
The question isn't who's better, it's how effective they'll be in their roles this year (Camby the only question mark, IMO), and how exciting they'll be together when the chance arises.
The precision stems from being the only reliable man on the offensive glass all season, basically. Amar'e's, in a way, helped him out in that sense.
Also, no way has Davis ever looked better than TC for team usa.
One on One Low post Defense = Chandler
Help Defense = Camby
Rebounding = Camby
Shot Blocking = Camby
At this point the only thing Camby does good on offense is get offensive rebounds and hes a good passer...
Chandler is the better offensive player off the strength of how many dunks he gets.
The only thing i really disagree with is Chandler being the smarter player, Im not really convinced either one is smarter then the other
F*ck it, we have both
So no..We didn't overpay TC
