dude is named Wilson. Not William.
Am I wrong that shorthand, it should be Wil not Will?
Thus it should be written IllWil.
Little respect for our longest tenured Knick.
need more words:
In April 2007, Wilson Chandler decided to enter his name in the 2007 NBA Draft after careful consideration. Before entering the NBA draft, Chandler hired Chris Grier as his agent. He had not worked out for many teams prior to the draft, including the New York Knicks. He got injured in Atlanta before he could work out for any other teams. But the Knicks talked to Chandler's agent and told him they were interested in him. Isiah Thomas, the team's general manager, had very good contacts at DePaul University and knew about Chandler from watching him play in college.
Chandler didn't get much playing time until later in the season, when the Knicks officially became out of playoff contention. Then head coach Isiah Thomas began starting him, and giving him heavy minutes. Chandler responded by averaging 7.3 points per game, his stats heavily improving at the end of the season.
New head coach Mike D'Antoni started giving Chandler heavy minutes, including starting time. Chandler's stats have improved in almost every category. He finished the season averaging 14.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
Wilson Chandler scored 22 points in a season opening win for the Knicks on October 27, 2010.
