      The Dallas Mavericks are dunking all over everybody en route to the NBA’s most efficient offense in recent history. In the middle of it all stands the 32-year-old Tyson Chandler. He looked broken last season but now leads the NBA in lobs.

      After 15 games, Chandler looks more beastly than ever and his ability to finish lobs has flattened opposing defenses with his vertical spacing. By surrounding Chandler with an array of sharpshooters and elite passers, the Mavericks have totaled 35 alley-oop dunks, which is 11 more than the second-place Clippers and more than 16 NBA teams combined. Chandler himself has 21 lobs, tied for the NBA lead with DeAndre Jordan.

      Meanwhile, the Knicks have one as a team this season. One.

      Meanwhile in other news, the guy who ran him out of town is sitting out with back spasms. So there’s that.

      Phil Jackson doesn’t have back spasms he has chronic back problems. And Fuck Tyson. He quit on the Knicks last year and you people keep slurping him. He the knicks offense was great 3 years ago when they did the same thing so why are people acting like they have never seen this before?

      Meanwhile in other news, the guy who ran him out of town is sitting out with back spasms.

      That’s right. Last season, the knicks could have been doing what the Mavs are doing now, in a weak Eastern Conference.
      When the coach is a moran, and the team “leader” is selfish, ball stopping, and would rather score 34 points and lose than 14 and win, guys are going to give up. Chandler may have been the most obvious, but basically everyone gave less than full effort last season- except for Melo that gave full effort to score as much as possible, not understanding, or caring, that it’s a losing formula.

    4. JD & The Rim Shot

      Great, cause I wasn’t talking about Phil. The primary reason he was traded was becuz he (Tyson) and Back Spasms couldn’t stand each other. In no small part, becuz of Back Spasms selfish “I’m gonna get mine” can-do-attitude.

      It’s funny you should mention quitting on the team though, since Back Spasms had no problem breaking plays and deliberately sabotaging his own’s team offense when they tried a pass first offense.

      Don’t waste your energy.
      “er” “johnno” and a couple others have the same attitude at Melo – Priority one, Melo. Priority two knicks winning.

    6. d-mar

      You guys are right, if you gave Melo truth serum and asked him “Would you rather win a game and score 20 or lose and score 40″ there’s absolutely no doubt he would answer “score 40″

      Unbelievable…

      source? Thought so. Keep on slurping you Chandler fanatics.

      Don’t waste your energy.
      “er” “johnno” and a couple others have the same attitude at Melo – Priority one, Melo. Priority two knicks winning.

      This is the last I’ll respond to you slurpers. You sound like a fucking idiot.

    8. er

      Matter of fact I’m done here. Thanks Brian and othersfor allowing me to share Knick angst. But some ppl here are zealots and it’s annoying. So don’t worry you guys can bash Melo in peace.

    9. hoolahoop

      You guys are right, if you gave Melo truth serum and asked him “Would you rather win a game and score 20 or lose and score 40? there’s absolutely no doubt he would answer “score 40?

      Melo could probably live with scoring 20 and winning But, he’d be happy averaging 14 points a game and being the second or third leading scorer on the team, even if it meant winning their division.
      No one would ever make that claim about Lebron. Or J. Kidd, or Magic Johnson. On the other hand, Kyrie Irving, yes. Vince Carter, yes. Winners vs. losers.

    10. thenoblefacehumper

      He quit on the Knicks last year and you people keep slurping him.

      If this bothers you a lot (and I’m not saying it shouldn’t), I hope you were equally as angry with Melo when he literally admitted he didn’t try hard for D’antoni.

    11. Donnie Walsh

      Hating Chandler for quitting on Woodson last year is like hating Tina Turner for quitting on Ike.

    12. DRed

      Are we criticisng Melo for back spasms? Because I’ve had back spasms, and I couldn’t play a video game.

    13. johnno

      Yes, we are criticizing Melo for back spasms because blind hatred of everything about him is a big part of what we do here. Not sure how my name gets dragged into a ridiculous thread criticizing a guy who always tries to play through injuries, but the irony is that I defended Chandler every time he got a cold, the flu, a stiff neck and every other minor ailment that kept him off the court…
