The season has begun, and thus, quantifiable results in comparing the parts of a significant trade completed over the offseason between the Bobbies and Hornets. Below, we'll keep track of the performances of centers Tyson Chandler and Emeka Okafor.
Through 12/28: Okafor-28 G, 29.1 MPG, 10.7 PPG (.501 FG%), 9.9 RPG, 1.9 BPG, 1.4 TOPG, 2.8 PF/G
Chandler-25 G, 25.7 MPG, 6.6 PPG (.500 FG%), 7.0 RPG, 1.2 BPG, 2.2 TOPG, 3.2 PF/G
'08-'09 Bobcats wins: 35
projected '09-'10 Bobcats wins: 33
11/19: With a surprisingly healthy start to the season by both players (at least in terms of being able to suit up and play), we've now seen the first injury-related absence in the pair. I'll track those below, since they're not entirely within the player's control and will effect these numbers.
11/18: Chandler sits out the second half of a game with a lower back injury, limiting him to 15 minutes.
11/20-11/22: Chandler misses two games with back injury.
12/22: Chandler leaves a game in the third quarter with what is diagnosed as a foot sprain.
12/26-12/28: Chandler misses two games with a stress reaction in his foot
Will Tyson Chandler outproduce Emeka Okafor in any significant statistical category by the end of the season? (And no, having more turnovers or fouls doesn't count.)
