Crazy8......u are evaluating Wilson Chandler as a SG, plus alongside of a
halfcourt PG-Duhon. Duhon needs a NBA experience SG to help him in the
backcourt with alot of things. Watch how great Duhon look with
an experience SG-Carter.
u can not evaluate Chandler's IQ as a SG when he is a natural SF.
That is the same as evaluating Carmelo at the SG spot.
u cant evaluate Lee IQ as a NBA center, or Nate as a NBA SG.
Now if the 3 players were in the Euro-League, NCAA, or CBA, then all
3 players could probably be stars at those positions in those leagues.
But not in the NBA.
If u did not catch on to how certain "super star" players made a big change
in the NBA league like 6.9 PG-Magic Johnson, 6.9 SF-Larry Bird, 6.6 PF-
Barkley, 7.0 PF-Duncan, 6.0 SG-Iverson, 6.7 SF-Pippin, 6.6 SG-Jordan, 6.6
G-Paxon, and 6.6 PG-Harper, then u should not be giving out theories of a
If u want to measure the IQ of the Knick players on the roster u have to do
it when the Knicks put a complete lineup on the court, which is something
the Knicks had few of last season.
The season before (2008-9) when the Knicks showed lineups of PG-Duhon &
PG-Nate as their backcourt, Chandler at SF, and PF-Harrington with PF-Lee
as their frontcourt was the most complete lineup u seen consistently within
the past two seasons.
P.S. People kept saying "Nate brought energy off the bench" which made
little to no sense when Q.Rich & Chandler were awful guards in our backcourt
that could not dribble the ball up court. Nate is an uptempo transition
combo-guard, so playing Nate alongside of Duhon in our backcourt gave us a
better option of having two guards on the court to bring the ball up court.
I give Chandler performance coming off the bench 2 months before coachReally? Come on really? Have you ever heard of Nicolas Batum?
Chandler would be fighting for the starting job against Batum.
McMillian put Chandler in the starting lineup. Batum offense/defense is not
as strong as Chandlers.
