If he is given enough minutes...this guy has a very good shot at R.O.Y. !!! All eyes will be on Kevin Durant now that Oden is out...so all Thornton needs to do is have a better year than Durant, and barring some amazing showing by another rookie, has ROY wrapped up. I just hope his success will be in unisen with the team's success.
I'm loving how Al's been playing lately but he is a rookie and will make a ton of mistakes. So I say take it easy with the lofty expectations. I do think that he will one of the top 5 rookies at the end of the season, but he still has a lot to learn.
