    When people post stuff like that I'm always curious how bad it was. I've went back to read encounters I've had with posters. It's never as bad as I thought it was. Credit to you saying he'd be in the NBA. I hoped Matt would, but didn't think he'd get there.

    When he made the move to go to Valencia, I thought he had made up in his mind that he could make a living and do everything he wanted with basketball playing at that level. Props to him for taking the leap to the NBA when it presented itself, and even more props for proving he deserved the shot. It's pretty amazing that, when you hear about players going overseas, you rarely hear the successes of building up your resume and then being brought back to the NBA. We've had 2 players do it in the past 3 years. Really cool to see.

    He looks like he belongs on an NBA court and is comfortable with that kind of spacing.

    Great story.

    Happy for Matt. He came in knowing that it is his job to make shots, and he hasn't been shy. It's great to see that his teammates are looking for him too.

    Hopefully he has shown enough to stay in rotation once they are back to full health.

    Had to do some research: apparently the nutcracker does this regularly, worldwide???

    "“Celebrity walk-on roles are a long-held tradition with Nutcrackers all over the world,” the National Ballet website explained."

    Hoping Matt Thomas gets back in the next week or so, it would be nice to see him play in Minnesota.

    Literally ordered a pair of those shoes that he's wearing yesterday afternoon - Air Freaks in the "almost" ISU colors. That was before I knew he wore those shoes.
