Tyson Chandler has always been known has a great defensive player, but now he is adding more to his resume. Offense. Recently this season, Chandler has really improved, both offensively and defensively, but mostly on the offensive end. Chandler is filling up the stat sheet, averaging 12.5 points per game, 9.4 rebounds per game, and 0.7 blocks per game. He is almost averaging a double-double. Chandler is executing the pick-and-roll extremely well. His field goal and free throw % has sky-rocketed, and he is racking up several more rebounds. In the 100-98 win against the Charlotte Bobcats, Chandler racked up 18 points and 17 rebounds. In the loss to the Brooklyn Nets, he put up 28 points and 10 rebounds. In the loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Chandler had 21 points and 13 rebounds. And in the win against the Phoenix Suns, he had 15 points and 13 rebounds. And trust me, there are several more games I could name where Chandler has put up outstanding numbers and has had phenomenal performances. Chandler keeps on improving, and is one of the most exciting NBA players to watch. His efficiency and contributions are key to the New York Knicks success. The Knicks are off to an outstanding start to the season, and the Knicks definitely wouldn’t be where they are now without Tyson Chandler.   Emily Gruver @Emily_Gruver – Knickswag Contributor
