Thread: Thunder acquires Tyson Chandler from the Hornets {multi-merged reactions}

  1. #176
    I like the fact that according to this we have a decent back up to david west coming off the bench... We all know marks cannot sufficiently fill that roll.


    Scouting report: Smith is phenomenal at taking charges; last season he drew 40 offensive fouls; on a per-minute basis, only six players drew more. The rest of his defense isn't quite as accomplished, as his thin frame allows bigger forwards to push him around under the basket, but he's an active help defender and gathers his share of rebounds.

    Smith is a low-mistake offensive player who is a strong shooter for his size. He's very comfortable shooting jumpers from either elbow and can also shoot short-range jump hook shots with either hand. Smith has trouble establishing good post position, however, so a lot of his close-range shots come off the catch.

    Just heard of the news....ok now we can move on. I wonder if a reason this deal was done rather early is so that they can begin or continue to work on another deal...? Also getting a 1st this year an next year is going to be awesome. The Thunder should win more games next year...but they aren't going to going leaps and bounds ahead just yet...wow....my favorite Hornets keeping getting traded away..JR...now Tyson...looks like I have to get a new one....should be easy....Chris Paul is my new favorite Hornet!

    Played at Cal. Drafted by the Sonics. They never signed him. Playing overseas. Released from first overseas team, picked up by another. Recently hurt his foot. Out for a month.

    devon hardin has not played in the nba yet. this is what hollinger says about him

    The 6-11 center was a late-second-round flier by the Sonics, after a college career in which he showed an NBA body and athleticism but almost no clue how to convert that into being a decent basketball player. He's a strong candidate for D-League seasoning since he needs to improve his raw offensive skills. At the moment he can throw down powerful dunks, but his range is about 4 inches and he has bad hands, which makes him somewhat reminiscent of Yinka Dare. Needless to say, he has a ways to go before he can be even remotely useful.

    This is ridiculous. I hope everyone enjoys missing the playoffs again and again for the foreseeable future till Paul wants out.

    This really makes me wish I had some contact with George...just to tell him how badly he screwed things up....AGAIN.

    agreed. tyson wasnt that great of a player, but we saw what happened without him. nearly 70 rebounds to the grizz.

    we are in big trouble. and by that, i do not mean mising the playoffs. i mean cp3 getting upset....we struggle for 3 or 4 years, and the hornets cant sell tickets. that kind of trouble.

    On a positive note... at least maybe he'll be able to cook up some crazy a** NBA fight vids.

    No offense but I think you are giving Chandler way too much credit for our success last season.

    There's no question in my mind we've gotten junk. We were hosed with this deal- and sorry folks...in my mind there's absolutely NO playoffs this year now.

    So which one is it?

    I've always liked both Joe Smith and Chris Wilcox but not at the expense of TC. I guess we'll see how this all pans out though.

    Ditto, my sentiments exactly

    I like Wilcox.
    I've had enough of Mismanagement of the team's money. Scott is partially the blame for this, he was google eyes for Peja and Posey and convinced management we needed them at outrageous contracts.

    why did this trade take place?

    because scott couldnt adjust our offense afetr teams learned how to defend our pick and lob. and because they started to force d west into longer jump shots, so our offense suffered. no coaching adjustments.

    then scott fails to use armstrong and imporve his play which causes us to reach for depth on 2 average players with expiring contracts.

    Um...CP3 upset? If Wade got over trading Shaq, and Nash got over trading joe johnson and raja bell, CP3 will get over this. I have faith that the FO can find another guy to block shots and catch lobs.

    I'm not giving him that much credit. It's obvious it was West/Paul running the show. The problem is this is typical of George... I wish he'd sell the team and give it to someone who worries about a championship. I'm merely saying Paul's not going to find this very rewarding...and eventually WHEN we continue to miss the playoffs....he's going to want out.

    Looking on the brightside, I have always liked Wilcox. Remember watching his Maryland team. I could see him getting back to his Ray Allen era Sonic averages, 14/8. He did once grab 24 boards in a game also.


    Sigh.

    amen brother. remember when we first got CP and everyone on plannet earth was saying the hornets were going to run faster than D'Antoni's suns? and remember when for a few games when we played the suns, we did run with them and beat them at their own game?

    what happened?

    Um... Wade and Shaq weren't exactly happy with each other prior to the trade...
