As an advance scout for the Golden State Warriors and previously for the Chicago Bulls Chris Thomas has spent several late nights during the past five seasons trying to prepare his teams for games against Suns point guard Goran Dragic.
Dragic’s adept pick-and-roll play is always a key to Thomas’ scouting reports that go to coaches and players. He reminds them of how dangerous Dragic is in transition. He warns them that Dragic’s stepback jumper is one of the better ones in the NBA.
Thomas’ message last season: “If we can stop this guy we’ll put ourselves in a position to be successful.”
For someone not on Dragic’s bench Thomas knew Dragic well. Now as someone on the same bench he knows him better.
Thomas has spent the past 70 days with Dragic who has led his Slovenian national team to the quarterfinals of the European Championship in his hometown Ljubljana. As a first-year assistant coach for Slovenia Thomas has seen the Dragic that a young Suns team will need this season.
