does that mean he can be a legitimate PF in this league. or is he too small? Not too many Pf's have lit up Horry for 35 and 11, and in the biggest came of his career.

I think he will bring other things to the table that other pf can't... and that will help him a top pf.

It seems when he hit a couple of Jump shots it gave him confidence, He is definitley quicker than any other PF

kmart could be great but he takes to many 15-19 foot jumpers and those aren't his shot, he probably shoots 30% from that range. He is best when he's posting up not spotting up for jumpers.

He has the potential and skillset to be a top flight PF, but the two things he lacks and will continue to hurt him is consistency and the mental edge.

Kenyon Martin might be the best athlete in the league. Factor in quickness, speed, strengh, athleticism, he has it all. He is not the quickest 4 in the league though, Tyson Chandler barely beats him out.

NO WAY

I don't like him but he is faster in a 90 foot race...he catches up to guards to block shots.

I believe Kenyon Martin is the most athletic 4 howeve i dont think he is the fastest.

Well if we are counting KG as a PF then he is the most athletic period.

I have seen Kenyon Martin guard everyone from Kobe Bryant to Vince Carter on a few plays. I don't think Chandler is quick enough to take the defensive assignments Martin has. Could you picture Chandler on Kobe or Vince? Probably not. But Martin's versatility allows him to guard the 2 through 5 (on a few occasions he even guarded centers).

Martin is much stronger than KG. Strengh is a part of athleticism.

Chandler went to high school in my backyard. Frequently he would guard the opposing teams PG if he needed to be shut down. These weren't scrubs either, these were PGs that got scholarships to PAC-10 schools.

The reason you haven't seen him guarding Kobe or Vince yet is because-

A) The Bulls had Artest and have Hassell. The Nets only really have Jefferson, Kittles is a liability and can only play the passing lane against those guys.

B) The Bulls just haven't assigned him to guard those guys yet.

Tyson Chandler hasn't guarded a point (or a guard) in his entire life and, if the Bulls are smart, he never will. Tyson just dosen't have the lateral movement to keep them in front.

Kittles is a liability? Why don't you watch a few games before you make judgements on players? Kittles was, arguably, just as good an on-ball defender as J-Kidd last year.

You are wrong. You probably haven't seen more than 1% Of Tyson's games.

Can you name one of his teamates on Dominguez?
