Kidd played a crucial role in some of those aggressive traps, deflecting passes and D-ing up George one-on-one several occasions and holding him scoreless, etc.
Chandler is just completely useless. He is our best defender on Hibbert just because he is long, I'll give him that. But his help defense is non existent.
I find it crazy how exempt from criticism Chandler is. DPOY last year, credited for "changing the defensive culture", the "leader of the team" etc...
Didn't he only grab 4 boards or something? Guy is 7'1.
Thats Brook Lopez-ish rebounding right there...
If you're gonna be an offensive liability, then you better damn well do your best Reggie Evans impression, crash the glass consistently, and mop up as many missed shots as possible.
