Career Stats: 13.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists
Years He Wore No. 23: 2010-2014
If you look at Thornton's numbers—21.3 points per game during the 2010-11 NBA season, 18.7 points per game the following year, and a respectable 12.3 points per game in 26 games with the Nets last season—you would think that he's been one of the better players of the last five years. But due in large part to the fact that he was stuck on some really bad Kings teams, he's never gotten the respect that he probably deserves.
