He only averaged those 21 ppg in '10-'11 during a span of 21 games.

I think he can be one of the best shooters in the league in time. He just needs to find a team that will give him a consistent position. The kings constantly move Evans to new positions which is causing a change in Thorntons minutes. A team needs to deem thornton a starter or 6th man, but keep it consistent. Cause thornton is the type of player that needs to shoot the ball alot to score. BUt when hes hot, hes hot.

Uhhh, he's always been a volume scorer who lacked efficiency.

Nothing about his game nor his jump shot for that matter has portrayed an ability to be the "best shooter" on his team, let alone the NBA.

eh. to each their own. Ive always liked his stroke and feel if he had a role similar to ray allens on the celtics, that he'd put up nice scoring numbers on a better efficiency.

He could have a Jamal Crawford role in a good team. Celtics could use his scoring off the bench.
