Kurt Thomas

Phoenix Suns

As if learning to play with a run-and-gun team wasn't difficult enough, now Thomas has to help fill the void left by Amaré Stoudemire, sideline for at least the first four months of the season. How Thomas adjusts to life with Steve Nash and Co. in Phoenix will go a long way toward determining the Suns' chances at salvaging the season sans Stoudemire.
