I think Tim Thomas is going to be a Free Agent after this season. He had a strong series against LA. What do you think about him? Would he be a good sign for the Pacers? 6'10" 240 lbs Forward - avg 10.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg (13.3 and 5.1 in the playoffs) He's a veteran, that's for sure.

On a side note, here's Marion's post game comments. Nice props to JJ and Thomas...

SUNS FORWARD SHAWN MARION (14 PTS, 10 REBS):

“We were just playing. We let it all hang out there. I think our activity spoke for itself. We were up 32-15 after the first quarter and that’s Phoenix Suns basketball. We were out there creating turnovers, getting in the passing lanes, creating turnovers, doing things we normally do. We did that the last few games. Our activity picked up. I think when we put [James Jones] in the starting line-up, we were more active. Give the credit to coach for switching it up a little. And Tim [Thomas] coming off the bench was a great weapon for us.”

He's a career underachiever so of course he would be the perfect person to be the leader of this team.

Career underachiever classic!!! But he has shown signs of glory in the first round. Could he get the "Jerome James" treatment?

Yes he's this year's Jerome James.

He's this year's Tim Thomas. Remember how he got his last big contract?

Ew - I can't even imagine having this guy in a Pacers uniform.

When Tim Thomas hit that 3 and did the "yayo dance", He became on of my favorite players.

Tim Thomas excels in a freeflowing offense where he's always got a green light to score. He had most of his success for Milwaukee, (with Allen and Big Dog) when they were run and gun, and now with the Suns. Carlisle would never use him properly.

Carlisle doesnt use anyone properly.

First of all, I think he finally got the wake up call he needed. Career underachiever or not, he's been playing really well with the Suns.

But...

No team he's ever been on has ran like Phoenix does. He's better suited to pick up buckets in transition or after spreading the ball around the wing, not so much in a slow 'em down, East-coast game. He's always averaged 10-15 game, but I think he's more effective this year because he doesn't have to work so hard for his shots.

He'll be an asset to any team that really likes to run; he's also a decent, athletic defender.

I don't think he'd do well here simply because we don't run.

Phoenix is the one place Thomas can thrive. Ask him to play solid defense and he crumbles.

I think he is in a contract year, so of course he is going to play hurt and play well. Didn't Eric Dampier do the same thing?

I wouldn't look twice at him.

I'd take hin in a Wizards uni. Hell no one else here plays D except for Jeffries so he'd fit in.

Tim Thomas+Bonzi Wells=Jerome James

Is Bonzi in a contract year too?

Of course he is.

You think he'd play that hard if he wasn't?

His own team BANNED him from playing in the playoffs last year.

I wouldn't sign him until he shed a few pounds ;)

Wells that is...

Thomas and Wells both can stay very far away. Wells had a great series against the Spurs, but did contribute to the melt down at the end of game 2 that cost them. I Amare was playing would Thomas even get off the bench. Heck, would the Suns even have signed him?

Others have said already, not a good fit for our style.

I see Tim Thomas for what he is....a Free Agent that will only take away minutes from Granger. If we're keeping Peja...he's already taken that job.

Are you kidding me? I'm pretty sure Michael Curry sold me my Accord.

Oh, and yeah, I don't think Bonzi Wells will ever play this well again. I think Tim Thomas is playing for a contract but I don't think his play is an accident, he fits perfectly in with the Suns. Man, I wish I played with them...sure looks like fun.

All I think of Tim Thomas is that who ever signed him this season in the Suns organization should pat theirselves on the back. They would of been 5 and out with the Lakers if it wasn't for him, to bad it isn't going to help against the Clippers. The clippers are going to take the suns out pretty quick. I personally wouldn't mind seeing him in a pacers uniform but, don't get him a big contract. As the James Jones reference, I still think it was stupid on our part to let him go, I mean he wasn't that expensive we could of signed him for 2.3-2.7 mill the next 4 years we should of jumped on it. I hope and PRAY we don't do the same thing with Granger.

Acie Earl could come out of retirement right now and thrive in D'Antoni's system.
