Wilson Chandler: Sophomore Sensation
January 28, 2009
Close related photo gallery overlay.
The Knicks sophomore sensation Wilson Chandler was named to the sophomore team for the 2009 Rookie Challenge in Phoenix on All-Star Weekend.
Chandler averaged 13.9 points, 5.2 boards and 2.0 assists per game at the time he was named to the team.
While he is used to guarding fellow young stars such as Kevin Durant, he now will line up besides them in the Rookie Challenge.
Chandler had perhaps the highlight of the first half for the Knicks with this dunk, posterizing the Rockets Luis Scola in the process.
His second year in the league got off to a rousing start, as he finished with 17 points and nine boards in the season opener vs. the Heat.
In his first year as Head Coach, Mike D'Antoni has taken it upon himself to make Chandler the best player he possibly can be.
D'Antoni has been more than pleased with the sophomore's results.
Chandler is responsible for defending both the most talented big men in the league ...
...As well as the most gifted guards in the league due to his amazing versatility.
Chandler brings fans to their feet with electric dunks almost on a nightly basis.
Asides from his strong inside moves, Chandler has a lethal shooting stroke from long distance.
Number 21 put on a shooting clinic earlier this year in Memphis, shooting 11-12 from the field, including 4-4 from behind the arc, to net 27 points.
Chandler scored a career-high 31 points in the Knicks huge win over the defending champion Boston Celtics on Feb. 4.
The 6-foot-8, 220-pounder is a gifted dribbler for a man his size.
"Will the Thrill" has shown no fear all year, taking it to the rim strong against some of the best in the league.
Chandler now joins Nate Robinson for All-Star Weekend, as "Nate the Great" will participate in the Slam Dunk contest.
