B Roy and adjusted +/-


I noticed the other day that, according to Basketball Value web site, Brandon Roy has the lowest adjusted +/- amongst all the Blazers starters over the last year (it is not negative, just not as high as I thought/expected).  And after thinking about it, I find it a bit troubling.  I don't think any injury issues can be used as a strong excuse, as this is a 2 year measure.  

Is his defense that bad?  Does he rebound poorly for a shooting guard?  He is pretty efficient on offense, so I doubt it is that, but something is going on.    Perhaps having him play as a SF is a really bad idea.  Curious to know if anyone has some ideas/evidence as to what is going on?  I mean, even Aldridge has a better adj +/- than Roy - which really surprised me.

Yes, adjusted +/- has it problems, but at the least this should raise some questions.  

Just something to think about.
