 @alvarex They will bitch no matter what. Just like Dirk after the Dallas game was whining about it. I don't remember him whining like that when he himself received 20+ free throw attempts in games.

Thunder need a big man in the middle with a little more offensive talent then Perk and a true point guard behind RW. We have more small forward/2 guards then we know what to do with. Drafting Nerlens Noel would would be sweet and with Presti's magic its pretty viable he could work a deal to move up to get him. Follow that up with a PG like Myck Kabongo or  Lorenzo Brown with their other 1st rounder and we're looking at a pretty good situation imo.

I don't agree with this assessment of Alonso's "perceived" defensive liability at 1B. The guy has had a 8.94 Rf rating and .993 fielding % at 1B during his minor league career. While an 8.94 Rf is not top 10 Major League material (which is around 9.65ish) its definitely above replacement value. Heck, Votto didn't break 9.00 Rf at the ML level until this past season at 27. So there is no reason to think Alonso can't be above average or better at 1B. While Yonder may never match Votto's power numbers, the potential for him to be a .300 hitter with 20-25 HR is definitely feasible. So I think trying to take just one season of a Bill James projection to peg Alonso as a near zero value player greatly undervalues his overall potential.
