(Link is to the insider chat from earlier today. Anyone who has read a Thorpe chat with the usual one liner responses will be extra-appreciative of the length and complete-sentencedness of this:) Richard (Las Vegas): Coach Thorpe, I got a chance to watch the Vegas Camp with the NBA players last week, and everyone was shocked at how great a person Tyrus Thomas was. He seemed so eager to learn and looked great on the court too. Thanks for helping such a talented player learn how to handle himself. David Thorpe: Tyrus is one of the most loving guys I've ever taught. He's truly a blessing. And remember, he's still just 21. We must allow all young people to grow up and find themselves. That he's finding his own stride now is great news for Chicago fans.
