Default Why is no one talking about Marcus Thornton??

The guy has played extremely well since joining Sacramento and had 42 tonight. Why can't this guy get any love?

Perhaps because it was against the Warriors and their non-existent defense?

If he can do this for the next 3 games... then maybe.

Hornets fans have never stopped talking about him since they drafted him (even before, he played college ball in Louisiana too). He can get points in every way, off the ball, from long range, mid range, or just Maggettiing his way to the foul line.

He didn't get along with Monty Williams but the guy is going to be one of the best scorers in the league for a while. He's going to be a big topic next year.

FYI this game was particularly great but he's been doing ever since he came in the NBA when he gets minutes. Last year as someone who followed the Hornets I thought it was funny everyone was harping on Collison and noone was talking about Thornton who was the only one in range of Evans PER

I'm glad we traded for him. He brings us something that we haven't really had all year, a go to scorer.

He's averaged 20 points for us (not including tonight) in his first 9 games with the Kings. Hopefully Tyreke will get healthy enough to see how they mesh in the backcourt.

Because nobody watches basketball outside LA/NY/Texas/Florida around ISH.

This guy continues to impress me as a scorer, but I really don't see him getting too much better. Which is not a bad thing, a 20ppg role player is awesome for any team who already has a star (or in this case potential with Evans though he hasn't looked too impressive since his rookie campaign).
