The Bulls forward not only offered quick, fresh legs off the bench during his rookie season, he was also a high-powered adrenaline injection, pulsing to the basket at every opportunity, slamming it home with confidence and poise. Get the ball to Tyrus was a constant thought on Bulls fans minds, especially nearing the end of last season’s campaign. Averaging a mere 5.2 points per game, Thomas was a difference-maker, and this season he should offer more of the same.
