ha ha ha, no.
SP is mandatory effect. meaning if my opponent hits me with their TN while i have JUST enough chakra to play the jutsu in hand, that chakra is instantly gone and the jutsu is unplayable. plus, he's a terrible chump later on because he costs you 2 chakra and stays where he's at.
TN is unnegateable early game damage. the cost really won't hurt too badly if you're smart about playing him. i don't lose much by tossing a Choji that just used its effect at one of your other ninja.
