More on Marcus Thornton

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.
