Well, I guess we will see tonight whether Thornton has his wheels back. Three knee surgeries is a lot.
Maybe Marcus can draw inspiration from Thomas Davis. Davis is playing great ball for the Carolina Panthers and he had three surgeries on the same knee.
As I said in an earlier post, I'm not expecting much from Thornton.
Contribution? Yes. He has averaged 2 points and 3 boards during his career. If he can stay healthy and match that production, playing good defense against the other team's power forward, then I would be pleased.
Domination? No. Playing above the rim like he did in high school? No. Scoring double figures? No.
I would be delighted to be surprised.
