No surprise to me. I've been singing Al's praises since I saw him as a rookie, playing down low with his low-post arsenal. With Al it's always been a case of staying healthy ,and staying conditioned and motivated, and the rest would start to happen, as Al has loads of talent. Defense has improved too, and Al is beoming more adept at passing out of the double-teams he is seeing at an increasing rate. But he's still only 21 and there will still be some growing pains, but they will be fewer as his development continues to progress.

No surprise at all, he really only needed minutes, which Doc regrettably gave to him.

We've all been waiting for it, but I'm actually surprised he's done this well playing as a center. I've always seen him as a pf and that's what he's usually played. A lot of times in the good games he had his first 2 years other teams would have their center guard him and put their pf on Lafrentz, Blount, or Perkins. It just makes it that much more impressive that he can score on virtually anyone.
