I see part of why we disagree on things Mustachio. I feel as though you are looking at players in terms of the post-Jordan "let's supersize our players" league. The league is not that way now. Alexander is MUCH more of a 3/4 than a 2/3. He has plenty of spring and was one of the strongest guys in the pre-draft workouts. It is a game of skill. The Bobcats need to put more skill (i.e. shooting) on the floor. They won more when they did this, b/c the game is no longer about trying to assemble the best trapeze artists. You have to have guys who can knockdown jumpers or your guys who want to get in the lane will be zoned/walled out.
Alexander certainly could be a floor spreading 4 in the right situation, while potentially being able to guard some of the more mobile 4s that the league has now. He will have to continue to get stronger, but he is not weak by any means. He is not Morrison or Carroll other than being white and having some ability to shoot the ball. I am not saying we should take him, but avoiding him b/c of Carroll and Morrison would not be the case. He is more of a 3/4 like Crash than 2/3s like those guys.
Whatever we do, we need to add a frontcourt guy, preferably a PF who can shoot the ball and spread the floor, providing a legit pick and pop weapon to fill the May void.
I like Alexander, but I don't think he fits for our team. If we weren't so overloaded with wings then I would be excited to get him. Truthfully, I agree with mustachio, I think he is too small to be a PF, and if he is not a PF then he is another wing. I agree with you 110oldeast about the need for a PF though. If we keep the 9 pick I would hope that love falls to us to give us some frontcourt help.
