    Smile Wilson Chandler vs Luol Deng

    Interesting comparison.

    Chandler gets $1,173,480 per year for the next 2 years

    Deng gets $9,385,000 per year for the next 6 years

    Look whos shooting better, scoring more, rebounding more, averaging more steals, blocks, and assists....in less minutes.

    I think the situation can make a difference at times but i dont consider chandler to be in that much if at all a better situation then deng. What i mean by that is dengs got a great rookie point guard, derrick rose playing along side him. Ben Gordens a very good shooter who spreads the floor and opens things up. Chicago doesnt have the best front court, but at least they have a front court. Deng fell the **** off....he was real nice a couple years ago. Is he just off or doesnt care after gettin that nice contract?

    oo now this is an interesting comparison, i have been really surprised with deng's slow start, as said above hes playin uptempo with a future superstar in d-rose, nd im jst as surprised by chandler's fast start. at this moment, contracts aside, i would take chandler especially seeing how he gets better and better. i also like chandler's improving jump shot which i believe can elevate him from a 15 pt guy rite now to a 20-22 pt guy in the future. I also think chandler's rebounding is pretty good for a guy his size (his rebounding stats are obviously going to be helped now that hes one of bigger players on da team). In my mind neither of these guys will become superstars, but i believe chandler has the brighter future ahead of him

    I wouldn't put too much into Deng's performance so far, he has to get used to playing with Rose. He may have stopped caring once he got his contract, but I don't think so. He doesn't seem to be that kind of guy.

    But still, I think Chandler is better. He's a better defender, and I think he'll be a better scorer once his jumper gets more consistent. Plus, Chandler has a lot of potential to get even better. I would much rather have Chandler on my team.

    WOW MSG I really just got a feel for how good Wilson is, I mean I've known Wilson was good from his first Summer League game but couldnt find a player to use as a guage. I always liked Deng's game and have wanted him to be a Knick for awhile now. But damn it appears as if we have a better player than him in Wilson! I still expect Wilson to hit a wall this year. We have to remember that this is in a lot of ways like a rookie season for him so maybe come season's end Deng stats may look better but I wouldnt trade Wilson for Deng!

    I wouldnt make that trade either. I would probably still consider deng to be better, especially after lookin at his stats the past couple of years and hes actually only 23. I thought he was older then that...Chandler is 21 and quickly gettin better. 14.9ppg is aint bad for someone who takes 13.3 shots per game but i think he needs to get to the free throw line more. And i think he will....hes got a complete game, but not fully developed yet. He can shoot, slash, and post up. Chandlers gonna learn a lot this year and really break out next year. Hes gonna learn how to get to the free throw line more, his shot will get better, his post game will get better. But im very happy with where hes at right now and i like his defense.

    i find the bulls a very odd case, they have so much more talent than a lot of these teams in the east, im jst tryin to imagine how good this team wud be if they had a decent post game? i mean we hear this all the time about them going for a decent big man but it still has neva happened. imagine how scary this team wud be if they managed to get elton brand? im jst so surprised at how dissapointing they continue to be, and deng's recent struggles highlight the team atm

    They were real nice a couple of years ago. I think losing tyson chandler hurt them. But derrick rose is real nice, hes lived up to the hype. Whats happened with nocioni? Is he doing good this year? He was real nice a couple years ago. Maybe firing scott skiles was a bad move too. I remember they fired him on Christmas eve, those *******s. Thats what we should have done to isiah

    give it to Deng for now. He may well just be having a slump year. Chandler would have to match or exceed his more productive seasons to really be called better. 13 odd shots per game and 15 points is pretty good though.

    He'll get there.

    I wouldn't just try to compare it using stats.

    Afterall, D'Antoni offence is notorious for giving average players good stat sheet printouts.

    However, Chandler has been great this year and if he continues this form will easily get the Most Improved Player award at the end of the season.

    Deng is coming back from injury which is always hard, so a slump is no surprise there.

    Deng got his contract on potential.
    Guess it's hard to develop when half of the team is bitching about minutes and money. Even Rose is playing shoot-first right now, because most of those guys just dont pass back and dribble till insanity.

    Its Tuff to compare.....Mikey D's system bloats numbers alil...


    just ask Nash, Amare, Barbosa, and Diaw this year....


    I personally think Deng = Chandler and Deng with edge based on

    1. Creates own shot
    2. Experience
    3. Better Passer...


    Chandler fits this system ., and Deng is stuck playing a big man's role in a front Court that is lame...

    Deng is slower than I thought though...

    Chandler has more potential .....hopefully its WC

    I'm going with Deng.. Chandler has in no way proved himself yet. He has been impressive and very good. But start looking at the stats again, how many games have we played??? Head-to-head I'd go Deng this year... Next year, I'm sure it would be Chandler, but it will be very hard for Wilson if LeBron comes to NY

    chandler >> Luol deng

    Great Topic & great comparison.
    Deng vs Chandler = Deng

    Only thing is Luol Deng has always been an explosive player come the Midseason.
    Last year was the only year that Deng & Gordon did not explode in Midseason and it was their final contract year.
    Deng have to give respect to Gooden's talent in the paint an around the basket b/c the Chicago Bulls does have a decent 5-Bigman frontcourt rotation (our Knicks does not).

    Our Wilson Chandler is in his second season and has become a great 3rd option on offense. We must give him some slack for playing out of his natural position SF, and not having a center in the rotation.
    It would've been great for him to average 28 mpg this season with PF-Zach Randolph and PF-David Lee in a 8-Man rotation throughout this season.
    The topic will come-up this season on when Chandler will hit the rookie Wall, being he was benched throughout 3/4 of his rookie season.

    Chandler reminds me more of a younger Richard Jefferson. The comparisons to Deng are fair, but I see more of a corolation to RJ. That said, I think he can and will be that type of player.

    Default Chandler

    Note that we got Chandler with Chicago's pick. They got our pick and we got theirs as the result of the disastrous Curry trade. Chicago picked Noah at number 9.
