I agree with you on Thornton. He lights it up sometimes but that's about it. Some random flashes in the pan. We need steady production.
Also agree that we need to keep Reke and see how he does under the new regime. Remember when Reke got arrested for driving like a maniac through Sacramento? lol just wanted to throw that in. I think he was also slightly involved in a drive-by shooting or something back in the day.
Oh yeah... I forgot about the driving incident. That was dumb, but I think he was about 20 or 21 at the time. If that is the worst he has done, I'll take it. I think the drive by happened when he was a kid back home. You got to be careful who you hang around with. Thankfully, he has a strong family structure with his brothers who have kept him in line for the most part. He has kept his nose cleaned and has always said the right things when it comes to the team and city.
The biggest thing is how much better he can still become. It'll be really interesting to see how other teams value him. His value is a huge question mark. I think the Kigns have to offer him the qualifying offer and make him restricted. See what other offers he will get. Can you imagine how pissed we will be if he goes somewhere else and tears it up, haha.
