I just don't see the difference between Chandler and Noah, Ibaka, D12, Duncan, Bynum, Perkins, etc.
Great defensive big man, and in the top 5 probably at defending the paint...but what did he do to distinguish himself from the rest of the pack? If he did something exceptional, I must of missed it.
The Knicks have played great TEAM defense under Woodson. Smith, Melo, they're all playing fantastic defense. Which is what Chandler needs - he plays great position defense. He's just like Perkins.
I thought Lebron and Ibaka had exceptional years defensively.
It's probably the silliest award of them all. It's a contest between the top 8-10 centers in the league. 25 years - 23 big men.
