Paulos' game is described as: ( By Chris Mammides):
Nick Paulos is a super skilled forward, an absolute sniper from downtown but at the same time a very good rebounder and a man with silky moves in the paint who can block, defend and steal the ball at any given moment. He is a 'born to kill' player with 100% offensive instincts. Paulos is a dangerous from behind the three-point arc, he is a tremendously skilled six-foot-eight forward who not only shows a feathery jumper but also the versatility to handle and pass the ball, along with a tremendously high basketball I.Q. He has very long arms which can help him to play defense on much shorter and much taller players, not only does he have an effortless shooting stroke with deep range, but he handles and passes the ball with equal efficiency and without having any real problems while his style reminds the one of Pat Kalathis, another Greek American small forward who's currently playing in the Greek league. He is most definitely of a very good quality and his future is ahead for many great things. His only weakness is that he needs to add some weight in muscles and to work a bit his personal defense

Let's have closer look into His outlook: (by Matthew Maurer for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Physically Thornton is a jaw dropper type of athlete. Because of the high energy level and aggressiveness Thornton plays with, he draws a good number of fouls from opposing players. Does a great job of getting rebounds out of position thanks to his leaping ability and foot speed. Runs the court like a guard. Is a threat in transition where he is a tremendous finisher. Loves to face-up the opposing defender and blow by them using his length and explosive first step.
Ball handling ability is satisfactory at the collegiate level but will clearly need to be refined as he is prone to turnovers. Defensively while he is a adequate shot blocker, he still bites too often on pump fakes
