Player Watch: LaMarcus Aldridge

March 27, 2009 by AlexV 

LaMarcus Aldridge is still coming into his own, and is almost at an all-star level.

LaMarcus Aldridge is still coming into his own, and is already close to an all-star level.

Earlier this NBA season SportsRoids talked about the success of LaMarcus Aldridge of the Portland Trail Blazers and how he looked to be growing into a potential all-star player. Now we want to revisit that topic to state we stand by our previous testimony.

Aldridge’s points average per game is at a career high 18.1 and his rebounds are at 7.4 which is only .2 less than last year. And what’s funny to say is that for a six foot eleven inch tall guy he has started to polish up his inside game.

In the first stages of his playing time he has been more of a jump shooter on the offensive end. But now he is combing that with more lay-ups, big dunks, and some short hooks.

Now look out, because Greg Oden seemed to have hit his offensive stride against the Philadelphia 76ers Monday night. Just keep imagining the potential that these two have as a big man tandem and it just may culminate in this year’s playoffs.
