This isn't even a contest, Kurt Thomas is way better, plays with more energy, is more aggressive, and is a ton better on the offensive end. Kenny Thomas has the advantage in he can post up using either hand.

Kurt by a landslide.

Kenny, because he has a fundamental inside game which is required for a PF unlike Kurt, who always shoots 15 footers.

But he makes those 15 footers.

Kenny Thomas is the better basketball player. But Kurt Thomas is more known. Check the stats. Check the game tape. Kenny has game. You can run the offense through him, or he can get his offense off the glass. Doesn't matter. You can't guard him with big guys because he's too quick for them. You can't guard him with a smaller guy because he's too strong and loves to abuse small forwards.

Come on.

You being a Philly fan, you should realize how much hustle and energy Kenny brings to this team. If it wasnt for Kennys hustle, AI would be it.

and the team would be worse.

Kurt is a better scorer, a more physical player, a better post up guy, sets better screens and has better range on his jumpshot.


People forget he was lead the nation in scoring while in college.

I think Kenny is inch per inch the best offensive rebounder in the NBA.. I actually think it's kind of dissapointing that no one will acknowledge his post game and let him go to work, because it's amazing. He's a bull down there, but he's also very quick/agile..

When Kenny learns to stop taking himself out of games (foul trouble), he'll be a consistent 17/11 guy. In games where he gets 37~ minutes, he's an automatic double-double. Kurt is a bigger impact on defense, but couple Kenny's relentlessness on the boards with the fact that he's 5 years younger, I'll take Kento..

Knicksbiggestfan, Kenny's post up game is on a different level from Kurt's.

Kenny doesn't consistently play with energy, I can't remember the last time he dove on the ground for a ball. Kenny has talent, he is a good post up player, but he's not aggressive enough. One game he'll give you an impressive effort, and then the next handful of games he's a disappointment.

On the Sixers outside of Iverson, the guy who hustles every game is Dalembert.

you have better insight than most of us because you are from PA.

I have to say Kurt. he just puts up monster numbers and is so underrated. a hard worker all the way.

Definitely Kurt.

Kenny is a solid PF, but Kurt is a little taller and a little more effective.

The 76ers completely overpaid Kenny.

Of course you wouldn't take the guy from UNM. :D

I don't think Thomas is overpaid. He's making 4.2 million this year, which is less than the MLE.. I think the LENGTH of the contract is what's surprising. I believe it's a full 7 year contract, and by the end of it he'll be making 7.5~ mill.. Kurt Thomas is making 5.3 million this year for (relatively) the same production.

Strong words, have you seen Kurt's post up game? I know he is asked to set a screen then make the shot, but have actually seen him post someone up? This comparision makes Kenny seem like Pau Gasol.
