Tyson Chandler: CLASS ACT (we’ll miss ya)

Tyson Chandler posted this statement on his blog:

I feel very good about the trade. I’m going to a place that has some good young players, some players that play hard and a great coach in Larry Brown. I’m really excited about the new opportunity to be a part of something that I feel like is on the rise.

On the other hand, I’m sad to leave New Orleans. I met a lot of people in the community that I got close to. It was an incredible playing environment, playing with a group of teammates that I grew to love and respect. That part I’m really going to miss. With those guys it was like a family. Being under Coach Scott and his staff and growing close with he and his family and the Pauls, really all of my teammates. We were really close, so I’m really going to miss them. It’s tough for me to leave, but I am looking forward to the future.

POSTCARD TO NOLA
I felt like we really had an opportunity as a team to grow within that franchise and get better and better. I thought we had the opportunity for a title shot. I’m going to miss playing alongside the guy who I think is the best point guard in the game and has a chance to be one of the greatest of all time, Chris. Then D-West, watching him develop as a player, I’m going to miss that. I felt like playing with David, I was also playing with the best shooter in the game.

Everyone knows how I feel about Coach. I just love and respect him so much and he’s helped me turn my career around from where it was heading in Chicago, coming into New Orleans and allowing people to see that talent that I have.

 

I’m really going to miss all of New Orleans, including the fans. I’ve grown close to a lot of the fans in my time there and I’ll miss that a lot. Especially because of last year, being injured and hurt. Obviously, I tried to play through it, but I wasn’t the type of player that I normally am. So it’s also tough to leave there without giving the fans that final taste of what I’m capable of doing.

  1. I wish Tyson Chandler the best in all of his future endeavors; he is in my prayers and thoughts.

  2. Well, I’m not going to say I’m happy about the trade because I’m not. Tyson only had 2 years left on his contract. I’m excited about who we got in return, but not with what we gave up. The PROBLEM is still on the bench, Peja, Mo Pete, Antonio, Hilton & Devin.
    What in the hell are we doing. Jeff Bowers needs to GO. We need a REAL FRONT OFFICE.

    Mr. Shinn, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do whats right for this team.

  3. I have always loved Chandler as a player, but I think this is a good trade for the Hornets. I just cannot figure out why the Bobcats made the deal. I will still pull for Chandler, except when he plays the Hornets
