So Long, Big Guy

Jeez, you take a weekend off to film dogs in Batman costumes and the whole world falls apart. OK, not really. But as you can probably guess, the news that Tyson Chandler has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Chris Wilcox and Joe Smith has shaken up Hornets nation. Fans are not too happy, with some proclaiming the season is now officially over and others, somewhat justifiably, wondering if it's worth blowing up this team's core to shed salary.


Yes, there are going to be many reactions to this, and it will be interesting to see how Chris Paul (one of Chandler's best friends on the team) and company react to losing their big man (David West came out against the trade before it was announced).


But for all the blocks and interior defense Chandler could provide, it was not worth nearly as much as all the material he gave this here blog (to me at least). Just what in the hell are we going to do without him? Oh, and for the record, I'm totally aware that we've done three "Hornets Best Of" videos (Chandler, Mike James and Antonio Daniels) and now two of those three players have been traded. I sure know how to pick 'em.


Anyway, hit the jump for all the great Chandler action we've been able to document over the last two seasons.



Tyson, you will be missed.
