Aldridge's last four games have gone like this:
The much-maligned toughness of LaMarcus Aldridge always seems to come back to his below average rebounding total for the power forward position. Don't look now, but our little boy may be growing up.
ATL: 14 rebounds
SA: 5 rebounds
MIN: 12 rebounds
MEM: 10 rebounds
That works out to an average of 10.25 rebounds over the last four games. Yes, small sample size and all that, but can anyone remember any four game stretch in LMA's entire career when he has averaged over 10 boards? You have to start somewhere, and my question to the community is:
Why is this happening now? Credit LMA? Credit Greg or others that are drawing more attention? Credit luck? Perhaps you think it's the matchups?
I'd love to trade theories with folks.
