2008-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)How about Tyson Chandler? People seem to touting David West as the #2 guy pushing the Hornet train, yet I think Chandler is the more unique and irreplaceable guy there.
(costa24 from Montreal)
If we're talking long-term value, I would no doubt go with Chandler. But in reality, the Hornets need both -- without West, the Hornets wouldn't have enough offense to win at the level they've been playing out. But you're right, West is definitely the more replaceable of the too. But if anyone could do it, it'd be Hornets GM Jeff Bower. He's a good one. (Bradford Doolittle (Basketball))
