The Knicks finally have something they have been missing for years and that is a full 48 minutes of depth at the center position. This center position is what the Knicks used to be all about. The Knicks used to control the paint, which made it hard for their opposition to score easy buckets. Chandler is one of the fan favorites in New York because of the way he carries himself on and off the court. He doesn’t back down from any contest and seems to be coming into his prime just at the right time for the Knicks. Only 2 seasons ago Chandler helped lead the Mavericks to a title over the Miami Heat by closing down the opportunities for James and Wade to get to the basket. Chandler helped change the culture of the Mavericks organization and made them a tough and intimidating basketball team. Chandler will always be remembered in Dallas for what he did for the city, but if he could repeat that in New York he will become a legend for life. Chandler’s back up is Marcus Camby. When Camby decided to join forces with the Knicks again, instantly the front-court had what it was missing. Camby, while up there in age, provides the team a player with talent, experience and depth other teams will have to plan for and try to combat because of the respect he has earned over years in the game.   Read More Here!
