so far he has at least 15 games in where he didn't score a point, 10 of those games he started.

How can your starting SF avg 3.9 pts on 39% shooting, 0.6 ast, 2.3 rebounds, 0.4 stl and his defense is avg aaaand he's getting paid 6.5 million. He has about 25 game where he took less than 4 shots, this is coming after a injured riddle previous season.

His signing is turning out to be just as bad as Noah

Thomas is "overpaid"

Thomas is not "useless"

Useless is someone like Bargnani, who was overpaid and equally full of Don't Care/Don't Try/Screw You/Just Give Me My Checks.
Erick Dampier, Andres Biedriens, Greg Ostertag. Those dudes were useless. They just did not care. At all.

The problem with Thomas is he's best suited to be an energy/glue guy but actually makes some pretty horrible decisions on the court. He's not a high IQ player but he's called one sometimes ( It's like a QB who is smallish and has a weak arm, but people say he's "smart" Well, he might actually be a dumb guy with a weak arm who is tiny. Just because she's fat doesn't mean she has a good personality) He doesn't have the athleticism to overcome bad decision making.

This is where Courtney Lee is interesting. Because Lee generally always makes the right decision on the court. He doesn't always execute and he doesn't have elite athleticism, but he knows what he "should" do on the court.

Guys like Thomas need to work on their three point shot relentlessly. Thomas is proof that the NBAPA is often more a fraternity/social order than people want to admit. Thomas is very popular as a person in the league. He knows how to play the social game. He got a contract, in part, because of that. This is a real world concept and not just an NBA one, people need to like you and are in a position to relate to you if you want them to help you when your talent is not overwhelming.

He is a bad contract. It's a testament to his people skills thought that Coach K stumped for him relentlessly with his international BB contacts to do everything to help him get chances in the NBA.

She's a 3 on most days. And a 4 on a rare day. She'll be friendly and cook for you and not push you too hard and will get on her knees and blow you in the most mediocre try hard way possible. Plenty of chicks like this find some guy to marry them and pay for everything. I've just described Lance Thomas.

Since you came on this board you have been way off in regards to trade value. - Briggs 7/28/2015
