Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
If #Knicks think Tyson Chandler's jump shot is going to make a difference this season, it will be a looong season.
Chandler celebrated his 31st birthday yesterday alone on a side court at Tarrytown, flinging jumpers with an assistant coach. The rest of the club was scrimmaging in halfcourt sets. surprise some teams. Chandler has worked on the jumper all offseason. He declined to attend Hakeem Olajuwon's big man camp, feeling the jumper is more important in the modern-day game than scoring in the post. “I think it can be deadly,” he said. “If you can knock down that mid-range jump shot, it exploits a lot of bigs, makes them come away from the basket where they’re not comfortable.” Exactly. It's too bad Chandler never developed one. The only optimistic element is he is a smooth free-throw shooter.
