i don't get this. what has he done that has impressed everyone so much?



What he is doing now should not matter. You should base the trade on what his value was at the time of the trade. Thornton was a big time young scoring guard and we traded him for a back up power forward who was struggling to get minutes in Sac town.

No need to restart the Thornton wars with homerish hyperbole. What was traded was a fringe starting/6th man guard for a fringe starting/6th man forward. It really was a fair trade with the exception of the length of Landry's stay in New Orleans.

My opinion exactly, and I loved Thornton.
