His lack of offensive understanding and skill has been a total hindrance to the team. Defensively it's being made clear what he is, an average at best 1v1 defender and a SLIGHTLY above average help defender but entirely over-rated pick and roll defender.
I somewhat agree. However, I actually think it's the other way around. I think he's a slightly above average 1 on 1 defender and an average at best help defender. Personally, I WISH I saw what you see. I'd much rather a solid help defender in a center than a 1 on 1 defender. There aren't many centers to defend. My biggest disappointment with Chandler is that he doesn't protect the rim like everyone says he does. Far too many times, I see guards drive the lane and go right at him and he backs down. Nobody fears Tyson Chandler when they go to the hole. And THAT is the main reason why I never liked the signing.
