Tyrus Thomas

is a player i know personally and i think he's been playing well as of late, does anyone else think he will live up to his potential

i'm not saying all-star every year, maybe one or 2 his career

but i'm saying putting up josh smith type numbers in the future

since late december he is averaging 17 points, 9 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, 2 steals, and 80% free throw shooting

i think with rose he can do that a whole season

If he lives up to his

If he lives up to his potential, th skies the limit for him. I really liked him coming out of LSU, and wished he had prduced more earlier. I hope he becomes a great player.

Tyrus

The only way he lives up to his potential is if he gains 15 more lbs without losing any of his athleticism and either improves his handling to the point where he is at an nba perimeter player level (can create his own shots and change directions with the ball) or (assuming he gains weight playing the power forward) develops some post moves that he can go to consistently. I just dont see any of that happening with him. He hasnt gotten ANY better since he was the darling of the 06 tournament

Bust

I live in chicago and watch every single Bulls game on T.V and i will tell you right now that Ty Thomas will not fulfill his potential. He may end up being a pretty solid pro but with that much athleticism and raw talent he is capable of so much more, but unfortunatley he has a bad attitude and only plays hard when motivated. It depresses me whenever I see Lamarcus Aldridge play because now i can only dream of the dynamic tandem he would have formed with Derrick Rose this season. Jon Paxson, if you truly love the Bulls organization you will do the right thing and step down from the G.M role. Other than draftin Rose, which was a no brainer I can't think of a smart move that he has made. We overpayed Luol Deng and worst of all we wasted a lottery pick on Joakim Noah. Joakim Noah!!!! RETIRE PLEASE!!!!

LOL...

Tyrus wasted last year... He showed up to camp out of shape, Paxson was so mad because they thought he was going to make huge strides.... He really needs to work on his complete game... The thing about him is that he has some handles so if he gets it together you looking at a potential Amare... Get up to 230 or 225 and he will be cool. He is showing you as of late how good he can be... Only thing he needs to do is put it all together and continue trying to improve and stop going back to the HOOD wit BOOSIE.... You know what Im talking about JPOSTABOY... LOL...

Tyrus MUST gets his BBall smarts up!

I agree he will never reach his FULL potential (with his athleticism and touch his full potential would be All NBA 1st or 2nd team) but he wil make an All-Star game or two durring his career. He is just way too athletic and active to not be a double double machine. Also living in Chicago, I think his biggest hurdle is going to be how his basketball IQ develops. He struggles most with reading defenses and remembering offensive sets. But he still makes at least two plays every night that only 1 or 2 other players in the league are capable of making. If he wants to he can be an All Deffense type guy... IF HE WANTS TO.

No

Ty will never up to his full potential, he may become a solid starter in this league but will never be a true star like the guy they traded him for, Aldridge.
He'll be a good energy player that can grab boards, block, steal, get some easy dunks and shots around the rim but never near where people thought he'd be.

when he was drafted people

when he was drafted people were touting him as the next shawn marion, shawn marion stats were never great he was a 17 and 10 guys with a couple of blocks and a couple of steals....i think he can achieve that if he stays in the bulls system just like marion in phoenix's system

tyrus thomas

Tyrus is WAY to out of control. He should be fined every time he takes a shot where at least one of his feet aren't in the lane. For every great play he makes, there are at least four others where is just is either out of control or just plain lost. While i agree he could average 10 boards and 2 blocks per game if he reaches his full potential, he will never score more than 10 to 12 pts a game.

Always a possibility

I like to be optimistic, so there is always a chance the light comes on for him. He has every basic skill required to be an effective offensive player (good handles for his position, nice form on the jumper) and his athletic ability is off the charts even by NBA standards (long arms, crazy hops, quick first step). So tools wise he has everything a 3/4 in the NBA would need, he just needs to get it together upstairs.
