Yeah... Jalen Rose was yelling out Tyson Chandler east coast starting center for the all star game. He deserves it...
if the allstar ballots were still 2Gs, 2Fs and 1C. Tyson is guaranteed to be the starting center. but the 2Gs, 3Fs format would hurt his chances, considering that most fans would probably go Lebron, Melo and Bosh or KG. it might be up to the coaches to make it right
I HOPE YOU GUYS ARE VOTING HIM IN!!! make sure you vote multiple times. I've voted maybe 3 or 4 times. Im not saying cast votes all day long but do your part as a knick fan and throw the dude some votes. I think either way he gets in, whether he is voted in or selected by the coaches. He is the best center in the East no?
i know but he is still on the ballot so we can vote him in as a frontcourt player. and if he doesnt get voted in, the coaches are def going to look at the roster and say "we need a center" in which case, they should select Tyson. The only other reasonable choice is Horford imo. No one else in the east comes close to Tyson. Am i forgetting somene?
Chandler seems like he has taken a step back defensively but his offense has been tremendous. He has stated the defensive gameplan has changed to put more onus on the guards perimeter play and keep him at home from having to help on every possession. This leaves him in no-mans land when the guards get beat.
Last night he basically just let Kemba get a wide open layup early. I think the coaching staff is telling him to avoid early foul trouble even if it means giving up a freebie, especially with Stat and Camby hurt.

If he keeps playing close to this, and the Knicks have a top 2 seed come playoff time. Coaches will vote him in. He's not getting voted in though. Forget about that. Melo and Lebron have 2 spots locked down. Fans are more likely to vote Amare in over Tyson...seriously I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up with more votes.
[QUOTE=lamzoka;24621853]i remember how people around the league used to say you cant reward players on a loosing team. (Eddy Curry, D-Lee, Raymond Felton 2011), so Verajao #s shouldnt matter[/QUOTE
Now that you bring up that's a great point.
