According to Hollinger, the current PER for LaMarcus is 3.22. Only Blake is lower, and most Blazers are over 8. He's only at 10 PPG, when he should be closer to 18.
It would seem that his production should be a bigger concern than that of defensive minded Oden. According to Nate, Roy and Aldridge should be our top 2 scorers.
Granted, I haven't read all the comments on every post, but I'm surprised that Aldridge isn't catching more flack.
Meanwhile, Oden's currently got a PER of 10.6, with 10.5 RPG and 3.5 BPG. If he can just maintain the blocks and rebounds (which should come easy), he's going to be fine. I believe his points will come, averaging a double-double for the season.
Aldridge could be a 20-10 guy this year if he would just be a little more aggressive. Maybe someone needs to tell him he's "soft". TAKE IT TO THE HOLE!
If L-Train can muster 20+ points against Houston tonight, I say we win the game.
