Noah has better hands and offensive instincts. Tyson is bigger. They're both long and athletic.Pippenatorade said:Obviously he's a bit better than Noah, but I've been watching Florida and the thing that I can't get to escape my mind is the constant thought of "what is Joakim Noah failing to do that Tyson Chandler actually does do." The kid is 6'11" with the same build and he seems to grab every rebound and block or alter just about any shot that goes up in his area of the paint. I realize he may not be as good YET as Tyson Chandler and his 9+ RPG, BUT I think he will be within a couple years. Oh, and he can actually finish buckets close to the rim that an average NBA player should be able to finish, unlike Chandler.
This is not strictly to bash Chandler. I don't think it's bashing because it's pretty obvious that that is just my opinion of him. Tyson could be a wonderful person for all I know. Plus, last night, off the bench, he looked more like the Tyson I remember from last year. Finishing games strong and with energy and not having to worry about fouls. This is moreso to say that I think Noah is gonna be pretty freakin good.
Do any of you guys see similarities in their games?
