Meet one Career Arc of a Bronc

If you haven't figured out from the post of the title, then maybe you will by this next line. This is about Jason "Skywalker" Thompson. But I got to thinking that the best case scenario for JT is probably someone around the realm of David West isn't it? Aren't they similar type players? Players with some outside skills who mainly thrive on the outside? Put up good numbers in college, although West certainly did it against best talent in the Atlantic 10 (Xavier's conference) than JT did at Ryder playing in the MAAC. But let's say for a moment the worst case scenario is Mark Blount. If you look at Blount's age when he came into the Pro's he was a whopping 25. That's very old for a player playing his first season. Unlike West and Jt who were both 22 during their first season that makes quite a bit of difference. So it's hard for me to believe that the worst case scenario is Mark Blount. Now look at Jt's stats and age. He's going to start the season at 22 years of age, and he will turn 22 on the 21st of this month. Look at David West's age, and look how old he ended up being at the end of his rookie season. Not bad production for a 23 year old rookie with upside. He was productive and simply got better. So, what's my point? Either Chris Paul made West into a pure All-Star by affiliation, or West is doing something right. Barring a major injury to JT, he could be somewhere on this type of career arc. After all, isn't that what dreams are for? Especially in the summer with little to do?
