What if Chandler would have token the mid level to sign with the HEAT? Could you imagine that Defense, could you comprehend the level of intensity when the HEAT decide to shut down an opponent. Chandler just came off of a championship with Dallas, he could have went to the HEAT and the media would have proclaimed him the missing piece. Lets say the HEAT would have won a couple of rings with Tyson; history would have said, that he was one of the greatest defensive big men ever.

Every NBA player wants the fame and the hardware, Chandler could have had both. The HEAT competition in the east for the next five years are the bulls, NY, 76ers, Pacers and if Nj gets Howard.

The bulls style of play of attacking the boards to get the offensive rebonds would be null & void with Chandler protecting the middle for the HEAT.

76ers really don't match up good with the HEAT, so just imagine Tyson on the squad... smh

Pacers really can't keep up with Miami, when Miami decides to run and gun.

The nets if they get Howard would give us some good battles in the playoffs, but the outcome would still be the same.

And I really don't have anything nice to say about the Knicks.


How do you posters feel about this, I would like to read your thoughts. I know some of you guys dislike WHAT IF's

Joining NY enhanced his legacy, he added much needed toughness and proved he was a defensive monster. The Knicks were the top team in points in the paint this year

Why would he do that? He'd be like the 4 th best player on the team

And even if he win he would be known as the guy who won on the cheats

He already has a ring and was one of if not the most important catalyst of that mavs team and finally put them over the top

no need to team up the wuss way and try to do it like bron bron and crew

Yes...he ruined his legacy. Everyone has ruined their legacy by not signing with Miami. Peyton Manning also ruined his legacy by not signing to play with LeBron, Wade, Bosh.

He could have kept on winning rings... The media would have elevated him to some super demi god like defender.

And 15yrs from now, he would have been recognize as one of the greatest defenders EVER; that is how it works.

( I know is a really good defender right NOW Knick fans... Just try to see what i am trying to say.... and remember it's just a what if ).

Just shut up. If you were a real Heat fan you wouldn't create this now. We just won playing beautiful basketball and is already the most hated team. People are looking for issues now and you just opened the can of worms now. Miami don't need Chandler and yes I agreed with your point that his legacy would be better if he won with Miami. Anyone who says he didn't want to join superteams he joined the Knicks and formed their own big ****ing big three with Melo and Amare. If anything he should have stayed with the Mavs but I can't blame him for going after money.

Its not that, dude. Its about how ludicrous it is. Tyson TOOK A PAYCUT to be with the Knicks (He was signed for cheaper than Nene). And you expect him to take an even BIGGER paycut (as in from 13 million to 4 million! ) to join Miami!

Was this (Tyson joining Miami) even something that was brought up in the offseason. It just sounds ludicrous.

Its like saying that Dwight should sign with the Heat next offseason or else he'll destroy his legacy. Or that Deron will sign this offseason for the mini-midlevel. It just sounds ludicrous.

Its one thing to take a paycut, ala how Lebron took a paycut of a few million (in the overall scheme of the contract)....but its like saying "why didn't Lebron and Bosh sign for 4.5 mid level exceptions in 2010, so they could round out the team better". Just makes no sense.

This was on my mind and I waited until the series was over to see if honest posters would feel the same way.

This is silly silly thread. He's 29. No 29 year old is going to take less than half the money for legacy reasons. I mean, OF COURSE winning a ring this season helps his legacy, but we're talking basically 60 million over 4 years compared to less than 30 million over 4 years.

He didn't make a foolish decision. I know that probably being a Heat fan you think anyone that doesn't sign with them isn't making the right decision...but this isn't really significant. He's 29 and took a huge contract. Good for him

Nop... I would never tell a player to take less.... I just brought up the fact that if he did, his legacy would have been through the roof. Probably would have went down as one of the greatest defenders ever... ( top 3, because of the team "D" and the rings )

Remember it's just a what if.




Was this (Tyson joining Miami) even something that was brought up in the offseason. It just sounds ludicrous.

Yes it would be ludicrous for a player to give up all that money ( remember it's a what if )

I didn't say tyson destroyed his legacy, by not signing with the HEAT. You are just being crazy poster here.... smh

Chandler has a ring. He proved he was a champion, he deserves a pay check, and NY gave him a chance to prove his is worthy of the DPOTY and a chance to be a big part of a potential championship team in a big market. Chandler will win in NY. Its a process.

Yes he damaged his legacy because he was a key piece in mavs championship run and turned a team that would more than likely allow channing frye to kill them in the paint into one of the better defensive teams with an actual threat inside(both ends).

No ****.

So could have Marc Gasol, Jamal Crawford, DeAndre Jordan, Marcu Thornton etc. etc. Any FA that doesn't sign with the Heat this off-season are "forgoing their potential legacy"...right? So unless they sign with the Heat, they've made a dire mistake?

Damn. Dwight was so foolish not opting out already and joining the Heat this off-season! What an idiot to "forgo" his legacy like that.


He's 29. He has a ring. He wanted to get paid. I don't get how he messed up? I really don't.


Dallas fell off after he left. He won DPOY in New York. He got very little, if any criticism, in New York...which says a lot because that was a circus all year.

His legacy is fine. I don't get it.

This is one of the most useless and self-promoting threads I've seen in a while.
Like, what if Rondo forced a trade to Miami and then restructured his contract so he only made 200 000/year, then got Chandler and Dwight for vet's minimums to split time at C. I know, crazy defense, right?

Totally. If Miami took the one player that killed them defensively in the finals, how would that look for EITHER player's legacy? Frankly I feel like half the players on Miami have already cemented their place in history unless they manage to dominate for a decade.

HoodedSB
05-09-2012, 11:52 PM
I don't think he (as of yet) really had much of a potential legacy anyway. A great defensive center with limited offensive ability, but he hasn't exactly been a star. I think the knicks are a few players (added and subtracted) from being a real contender, so it's not like he's in a terrible situation right now.

besides, potential legacy is not a real thing at all. I gave up my potential legacy of being a hall of fame cornerback in the nfl by never playing football. Hypotheticals like this are annoying.

Run&Gun
05-09-2012, 11:57 PM
I def. think that Chandler would have not made his legacy any better by joining the heat, he would have even got less recognition by playing in Miami, unless their defensive numbers changed completely, which I doubt. I think he went to the place that could pay him the most money and most recognition on a defensively challenged team.

I also think Miami would utilize him even less on offense, don't seem to run that many pick and rolls so I think he would be overshadowed by the big 3, and would be looked as more on a "role player"

Also Miami fans have to stop saying they can sign everyone with the MLE, I don't think you can get any center for that little money besides maybe Marcus Camby, even Dalembert didn't want to sign for that amount of money, just don't see any "bargain" big men in the league.

It's a little too early to start saying that he forfeit his potential legacy don't ya think? Regardless of whether or not he signed with the Heat (which he didn't by the way) his legacy began in Dallas and only grew more this year in NY by getting DPOY. Like he said in the beginning of the season he left Dallas to join the Knicks because he wanted to be a contender in the future. The Knicks are one solid point guard (Raymond Felton) away from being a contender, which I think they proved this season. The cohesiveness will come with time. Woodson will get a complete season in New York under his belt and the Knicks will mature into a complete basketball team. This post is trying to mask the fact that you guys have one of the worst PG/C combinations in the league. You guys swing between Joel and Chris Bosh at center who is basically a tall 3 and has no ferociousness in the paint at all. I respect the talent that the Heat have but when it comes time to show up in the playoffs you're only as good as your worst player and you guys got stuck with a whole lot of worst players for 2 superstars and a giraffe.

Raph12
05-10-2012, 01:48 AM
He has his ring, now he got his money and DPOY award, both things he couldn't get in Miami... One more ring as a defensive anchor wouldn't enhance his legacy much, but that DPOY award will keep his name mentioned thoroughout history (or atleast in the books).

And he's much richer now.

I can see posters are taking my question/thoughts the wrong way, but i am not shock, it's PSD.

I've never said once that Tyson was stupid for taking the money, or he should not have taken it... I just created a what if.

Again, the problem isn't the "what if".

You didn't say what if Tyson was in the heat. You pretty much said "he would have been some uber guy if opted to sign for 4.5 million instead of 60 million ".

That's why your theory is being chastised.

Yeah, it's somewhat a "what if", but in reality, it's talking about how a guy should have taken much less...a dream scenario....key word us "SHOULD HAVE". That's how you presented this scenario.

Hence why everyone is also putting up these ridiculous scenarios.

If lebron and bosh would have taken only 4.5 million and they would have been able to field a complete team, they'd be thought of as the best team in the world.

See what I did there? That's how you put it.

Chandler probably helped his legay by turning the Knicks to a better defensive team. If anyone ruined his legacy is Lebron. By needing 2 other franchise players to win a title and being second fiddle to Wade then legacy ruined. Even though Lebron is better, his legacy wouldve been saved had Wade and Bosh gone to Cleveland and them joining him.

If his main goal was to keep on winning rings, he would have stayed with the defending champions, not join the team that just got beat by them.

This is exactly what I was thinking. He could have taken less and just stayed with them.

Exactly, Lebron hurt his legacy by signing with all the stars to win a chip instead of doing it himself with a team built around him. Tyson would not help his legacy at all that way. It would be the big 3 and O' Yeah Tyson. Just look at Bosh he went from being argued as the PF in game to being constantly critiqued and not thought of as good because the big 2 steal his points, rebounds, fame.

Every NBA player wants the fame and the hardware, Chandler could have had both. The HEAT competition in the east for the next five years are the bulls, NY, 76ers, Pacers and if Nj gets Howard.

I think you grossly underestimate the importance of maximizing earnings, especially in light of the fact that said player has already won a championship. In some respects Tyson's "legacy" (a word I don't care to use, to be honest, while a player is still playing) is already secured because he was part of a championship team.

With title in hand, the next most important goal is to secure a financial future for yourself, for your family, and for your kid's kids, if possible. Joining Miami might put another ring on his finger in time. But it doesn't ensure that his family is taken care of NOW.

The Knicks will pay him the below sums over the next few years. If Miami wasn't willing/able to match, then Tyson made the right decision.

2011-12: $13,107,838
2012-13: $13,604,188
2013-14: $14,100,538
2014-15: $14,596,888

Lastly, since we're talking "What IF's", what if the Knicks somehow manage to win a title with the Knicks? You want legacy? The argument can be made that winning a title in the mecca of basketball will far exceed any championship that he'd win in Miami. Tyson would become the stuff of legend along with the rest of that team.

Why would he do that? He'd be like the 4 th best player on the team

And even if he win he would be known as the guy who won on the cheats

He already has a ring and was one of if not the most important catalyst of that mavs team and finally put them over the top

no need to team up the wuss way and try to do it like bron bron and crew

this is coming from a knicks fan who was hoping for amare, melo, and chris paul to join forces.. don't be a homosexual dude if you could have the miami heat in a knicks uniform you wouldnt be yapping so god damn much.. im sorry you couldn't get paul, im sorry amare and melo play like **** together, im sorry you arent going to get steve nash.. blame amare and melo for being greedy bastards and taking max contracts, blame your fan base for not being loyal and bashing every knick player and coach that walks in there, and blame your gm for not putting a good team together

IF he accomplishes that, it would definitely be more of an accomplishment than winning a ring with Miami. Great point.

Chandler with the HEAT would straight up be unfair to the entire league. As a HEAT fan, however, i'd absolutely love it!

Pippen didnt get out of the second round. He took the bulls to the 3rdseed and lost to the Knicks in the 2nd round. I followed the Bulls religiously in the 90s and Pip was great, just not as the main player. Look at his portland and houston days, not much of a factor. He also averaged 20= ppg because defenses were focused more on Jordan. Which is the reason he didnt do much after he and jordan split

Harper was a decent role player, Bulls got him after all his injuries, not the player he once was. Rodamn was just a rebound machine nothing more, and a good defender. both were not the caliber players of a Bosh, Wade or LBJ.

And yes, Pip was a franchise player. He took a team on his own back (although the team added a few better pieces the year after the bulls 3rd title) to the 2nd round, which they should have won god damnit if not for a phantom whistle called like 2 seconds after the play occured. ********.

Now they are trying to justify that its ok what LBJ did because Jordan had franchise players in Pip, Harper, and Rodam, 2 players who are no where near the Heat 3 stature and Pip who isnt a franchise player but one of the greatest sidekicks, not that theres anything wrong with that

If Chandler needs Lebron, Wade and Bosh to win another ring, that's not a legacy, that's a joke.

Last 2 years... championship, then DPOY.

I think his legacy is doing just fine.

As for the Mav's, the Mavs had the cap space and didn't want to give him a competitive offer. IE, asking Chandler for a discount.

Tyson said he wanted to stay with the Mavs. He made clear he was sad to leave the Mavs. He wanted to retire as a Mav. However, he also wanted to be paid what he felt was fair for his contributions towards their title (which you could argue might have helped prevent a 1st round exit this year).

I don't blame Tyson at all.

Not defending Jordan, just stating facts. Jordan helped develope PIP, and his teams were not stacked. Lebron was as still is amazing. Especially in 07 when he went to the finals. Before july 2010, i was thinking that LBJ will surpass Jordan as GOAT. Now that has been tarnished because he needs ESTABLISH franchise players to win a title.

You compared LBJ to MJ, Wade to Pip, but they didnt team up they were drafted and developed, big difference than teaming up after they developed into franchise players.

Either way, Tyson shouldve stayed with the Mavs, he wouldve been valued more in the history books, but what he has done to NY (a horrible defensive team) he only helped his legacy

Man though, Miami would have themselves an incredible team with Tyson in the middle. They wouldn't have to rely on LeBron's energy every night because Tyson is a high energy guy and a great pro. Bosh is doing a solid job in the middle right now but I think Miami would absolutely destroy the comp with Chandler in there.

And imagine if he would have kept on winning rings, even after he left Dallas... And he joined a team that could play Defense at a very HIGH level ( HEAT / Bulls/ etc.

Wouldn't that be a greater legacy then winning 1 ring and maybe never getting that chance again.... ( I said maybe people )




With title in hand, the next most important goal is to secure a financial future for yourself, for your family, and for your kid's kids, if possible. Joining Miami might put another ring on his finger in time. But it doesn't ensure that his family is taken care of NOW.

I never said that Tyson should turned down a BIG pay day... It was a what if he took the mid-level to play for the HEAT, and be apart of 1 of the greatest defenses in NBA history.

Thats all people.




The Knicks will pay him the below sums over the next few years. If Miami wasn't willing/able to match, then Tyson made the right decision.

2011-12: $13,107,838
2012-13: $13,604,188
2013-14: $14,100,538
2014-15: $14,596,888


I would never tell him to turned down that kind of money... Only in a what if thread lol.... lol Not even then. He has 1 ring ( more then Lbj ) but he could have went down as one of the greatest defenders ever, by signing with a team that have good defensive principals.




Lastly, since we're talking "What IF's", what if the Knicks somehow manage to win a title with the Knicks? You want legacy?

As a HEAT fan i can not envision this happening .... But Yes I can agree wining a title in NY would be epic for their fans and the basketball world; but thats not going to happen.

Why?

Wade & lbj driving to the basket, toss the ball up, dunk by Tyson ( I know easier said then done, but you get the picture ). Bosh for the spacing, Miller for the 3's, all Tyson would have to do is clean up. He would have so many open opportunities to finish at the basket it wouldn't even be funny.

I think Tyson playing "D" for the HEAt would be something that fans haven't seen in a long time... it would have been something like that Detroit "D" with Ben wallace, but 10times more athletic... i'm talking crazy "D"

But it's a what if, and people are letting their hate for HEAT fans and the Miami HEAT players take control of them.... Instead of just seeing what I have to say and comment in a respectable way.

mid level are you serious - giving up 1 mill or even 2 per year then maybe I could see your point at all but for a guy who really hasn't made a ton of money and has the chance to get 14 mill a year and would give up 9 mill a year when he already has a ring and still is on a talented team that has the potential to be a championship contender. How about did LeBron ruin his legacy by teaming with Wade and Bosh instead of telling Bosh to go somewhere else and get a real big man. Bosh is a waste on this team - not his fault or saying he isn't a very good player but as an offensive player who is soft and doesn't rebound the Heat would have been way better if they gave the $14 mill to Chandler and not Bosh - then you got a point but thats the Heat's mistake not Chandler.

Last year he was a big part of beating a team most fans of the nba hated and was rooting for them to fail. That helps your legacy a ton. Joining that same team the following year just to stack the deck would not be a good career move.

Why?

Wade & lbj driving to the basket, toss the ball up, dunk by Tyson ( I know easier said then done, but you get the picture ). Bosh for the spacing, Miller for the 3's, all Tyson would have to do is clean up. He would have so many open opportunities to finish at the basket it wouldn't even be funny.

I think Tyson playing "D" for the HEAt would be something that fans haven't seen in a long time... it would have been something like that Detroit "D" with Ben wallace, but 10times more athletic... i'm talking crazy "D"

But it's a what if, and people are letting their hate for HEAT fans and the Miami HEAT players take control of them.... Instead of just seeing what I have to say and comment in a respectable way.

But it's PSD, i really don't expect much.


The reason people are hating on this thread, is basically because it's more of a fantasy than reality, it's like a 2k12 move. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't even think Chandler listed Miami as one of his possible destinations. Chandler didn't even think twice about going to Miami cuz. of the contract differences. If this thread had posted if Sam Dam, or Kenyon Martin had signed it would be a lot more realistic, cuz. no chance someone signs on a team for mid level unless they're at the end of their career or have had character or injury problems.

Dwight Howard will ruin his legacy by not signing a 1.9 million dollar deal with Miami. LeBron ruined his legacy by not signing with the Knicks or Bulls.

Feel free to join in and play this drinking game.

Tyson has a Ring, a 14 million dollar contract, and just won DPOY in the hardest city to play in. Pretty sure his legacy is doing alright.

Lebron could have became the biggest sports figure in NY history signing with the Knicks. Dude wanted nothing to do with that responsibility opting to join a super team like a punk so he can share the "being the man" duties. Pretty sure his legacy needs to be looked out. Every organization besides Miami will tell you that's a punk move.

Why on earth would Tyson be looking to sign a MLE exception deal.

Actually, I think Tyson Chandler significantly increased his potential legacy with the Knicks. Playing in a huge market, providing leadership, and one of his best statistical seasons as well

Do players like Chandler actually have "legacies" to worry about to being with?

Most Knick fans now, want to get rid of Chandler... Most NBA fans don't even acknowledge Chandler anymore.

Did he make a mistake signing with the Knicks? Should he have stayed with Dallas for less?

I know what I wrote about Chandler signing the mid level is crazy; so don't focus on that...

Focus on, did Chandler make the right decision in signing with the Knicks, and what his legacy could have been, if he won more rings.

No need for the bump. Closing.
