Chat with Sixer Kenny Thomas
Chat with Kenny Thomas on Nov. 15.|
Kenny Thomas enjoyed one of his best seasons as a professional in 2003-04 when he averaged 13.6 points and a career-best 10.1 rebounds with a career-best 34 double-doubles. He was one of just 11 players in the NBA to average a double-double in 2003-04 and at 6-foot-7 was the shortest player to do so.
Thomas seems to have picked up in 2004-05 where he left off, recording two double-doubles and three games with 10 or more rebounds through the first five games of the season. He has shaken off the affects of a right-eye abrasion and left-eye traumatic iritis suffered during the preseason to rank second on the team in rebounding at 8.4 rebounds per game.
Entering his sixth NBA season, Thomas was acquired by Philadelphia on Dec. 18, 2002 from Houston. As a rookie, he led the Rockets in total rebounds (437), standing with Elton Brand as the only rookies to lead their team in total rebounds. A forward out of New Mexico, he was a four-year starter for the Lobos and helped lead his team to four consecutive NCAA Tournament berths while earning Honorable Mention All-America honors from the AP in his junior and senior seasons.
