When that "Taylor Hall" gets better, he could take over then and be the new "The Guy". By that time, Thornton would have declined enough and I doubt he'd mind not being the top-gun. No player in the league would think they are the best when they obviously aren't.
The problem is that it's not always obvious to everyone...especially athletes.
