Congratulations New York. You just got yourself Tyson Chandler. He is an NBA champ, one of the NBA's best defensive stalwarts and a fine addition to the roster.

Or was it?

Let's take a look at the pros and cons of the Knicks' newest member.

Pros:

  • With Chandler, New York sports arguably the best front line in the NBA. Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire and Chandler will be a fearsome trio for any opposing team to deal with and plan for.
  • Chandler isn't simply one to simply plot in the middle. He is active, athletic, long, can rebound, block shots and patrol the paint. Not to mention he will clean up misses and score, which will be somewhat of a bonus for New York on some nights.
  • He will bring a championship mind-set to New York. A team who got a taste of making the playoffs, and going further in the playoffs will be on the team's mind.
  • Amar'e will now get to play at his natural position at power forward where he excels as he showed in Phoenix.
  • He won't take away from the "7 seconds or less" style Mike D'Antoni likes to run. Tyson can get up the court and it might actually help him increase his offensive output with some easy buckets. He also will actually bring a defensive mind set to a coaching style not known for emphasizing defense.
