    I haven't seen an official retirement announcement yet, but the dude is 38 and coming off the least effective season of his entire career. But who knows, maybe someone will sign him for that all-important veteran locker room presence.

    Regardless, he's done with the Rockets and it's time we bid him a fond farewell. He did everything that was asked of him here, although nothing much was asked. Good luck, Tyson.

    Tyson Chandler— the only tall player that D’Antoni has ever liked.

    He should take a player development role somewhere

    The Rockets should hire him to help KJ Martin develop more height.

    I like him but he is dead weight at this point.

    Did Tyson have anything to do with the trouble House got himself into under the Bubble? I seem to recall seeing his name linked to it somehow. Maybe I misread something. Wouldn't be the first time.

    My only memory of Chandler as a Rocket was bricking two free throws in the bubble.

    You recall correctly. First Chandler was implicated too. Then many here felt he was covering for House. Then some rumors of Tyson's wife being angry. Not sure if that was ever confirmed. It seemed both he and House were under investigation. Then nothing more ever was said about Chandler. Sucks we'll probably never get the whole story on this.

    Everyone thought that 2001 draft was going to be one of the best ever. Even though it was ultimately disappointing and only Pau and maybe Parker ended up being top-tier players, the draft had a lot of solid pros and 18 of the 28 players picked in the first round played 10 seasons or more, which is a damn good percentage:

    1. Kwame Brown
    2. Tyson Chandler
    3. Pau Gasol
    4. Eddy Curry
    5. Jason Richardson
    6. Shane Battier
    8. DeSagana Diop
    10. Joe Johnson
    12. Vladamir Radmanovic
    13. Richard Jefferson
    14. Troy Murphy
    18. Jason Collins
    19. Zach Randolph
    20. Brendan Haywood
    25. Gerald Wallace
    26. Samuel Dalembert
    27. Jamaal Tinsley
    28. Tony Parker

    In the second round at 31 you also had Gilbert Arenas who played 11 seasons and has the highest career scoring average of the group at 20.7 PPG with Jason Richardson at 17.1 and 17.0 for Pau.

    Of course, the 7th pick was Eddie Griffin.

    That was the draft I wanted Shane or Joe Johnson.

    But I thought Eddie would be a great fit with Yao.

    Wow.
