thomas is a legit 6'4", 190 lbs and muscular, so he won't be overmatched physically. he's definitely quicker and more athletic than christopherson. however, his high school team plays zone mostly, and he plays on the baseline, so its hard to say how he'll guard on the perimeter. he's also an oustanding rebounder.
He's a cross between David Hasselhoff and Michael Jordan. Hoff on the beach, Jordan on the court.
Bravo, I am using this!

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
Matt Thomas is The Mayor reincarnate who was the reincarnation of Larry Bird. Its a roughly 20 year cycle of tall white shooting extrordinares. Legend has it Robin Hood could throw a melon in a basket from 40 paces with his eyes closed, he chose to be pretty good at bow hunting instead to please his father.
