Second, Thornton is a good player but his subpar ball handling really messes up his game. When he dribbles the ball his head is always down (and I thought Maggette had bad handles) and this causes him to go outta control. If his handles improved, Al would be able to use that along with his strength and athleticism to get where he wants.

I agree, if Al had better ball handling, he would be in much better control. Sometimes, Al spins out of control and ends up taking an off-balanced fade away. Improved ball-handling would make him much more effective.
