Okafor is 14/11 in his career, younger, and he didn't fail a physical in the past season. This seems like one of those Larry Brown falling in love, then out of love with a player situations. Chandler will probably be in his doghouse by Thanksgiving, while Okafor will be on a team contending for a division title.
How anyone could say Scottie Pippen doesn't belong in the NBA Hall of Fame is asinine. His statistics and track record back it up. You can call him a second-fiddle all you want but was James Worthy one as well? Worthy is in the hall of fame.
