It should be noted that Thomas says that he will do whatever the Lakers need him to do, but does say that he feels he deserves to be a starter and he is still in his prime.
The Lakers haven’t decided what exact role he will be playing. Thomas who obviously is aware what his agent said was a lot more tactful in his comments, but made a point of stating that he still feels like the same guy he was in Boston.
Time will tell if that is true, he has time to repair his reputation with the Lakers, so this was a good start in saying he will do whatever it takes to help the team, but we will see how long that last if things don’t go his way.
