I know that. I said I "question" how much credit he is given. I'm not entirely sold the other way.

Maybe they got better defensively as a team overall, minus Chandlers contributions (that's why they remained at 8). Maybe Defense was emphasized more this year, because they lost Chandler
Maybe. The point remains that they were able to be a very solid defensive team without him, which suggests to me that, arguably, it was reasonable to decline paying him $14.5 million a year. Especially when nobody knew Odom would shit the bed so hard.
