I appreciate Tyrus Thomas is only 10 games back from his injury, but what I saw Saturday night really shocked me. I was a real kool-aid fan of Tyrus (i.e, upside) and hated to see him traded. However, my man crush is definitely over for the former #4 pick. My observations include:
- Skinny as a rail and less muscle definition than when he was a Bull
- Loves the perimeter way too much
- Not in flow of offense - 3rd/4th option bailout jump shooter
- No longer a defensive presence
Drafted as a Power Forward Defensive Beast now a wimpy small forward. I will never understand where he got the idea he was a small forward. Good job by GarPax for getting a future #1 before he imploded. What is Silas/MJ thinking?
