D.J. White and James Harden helped out at the Great State Fair of… Okla-homa! yesterday.
SI’s Britt Robson on Tyson Chandler: “Now that Chandler, according to at least one doctor, is certifiably prone to another toe injury, was Charlotte unwise to pick him up? How can Chandler be too risky to warrant trading Wilcox, Smith and Hardin in February but, after another ankle aggravation in March, is suddenly able to fetch Okafor, Charlotte’s younger franchise cornerstone? The answer is that, along with the long-term payroll savings, the Bobcats obtained a player who has a larger upside and is more compatible with their personnel. And Charlotte had the guts to roll the dice on Chandler — imagine that, a group with Michael Jordan in it making a gamble — who had operations on both his ankle and his toe in May and then rested during a summer that didn’t even include pickup games.”
