What's Great About The Blazers? The Bigs.


Right now Portland has an excellent stable of big men.  We have one of the biggest, best front lines in the league.  Marcus Camby is one of the best rebounders and shotblockers in the league.  The new LaMarcus Aldridge is a top tier power forward who is only going to continue to improve now that he has figured out how to score inside.  He will likely make the All Star game if the Blazers continue to win more games heading into the All Star break.  I believe they will.  We have one of the better center/ power forward combinations in the league right now.  Also, we will have Pryzbilla back any day now, who is a starting caliber true 7 foot center.  With those three players we have a better stable of big men than most all the teams in the NBA.  Especially because Aldridge can swing down to the center and play that position better than most starting centers in the league (since a lot of players who start at center are undersized, and LaMarcus isn't 6'11" and therefore tall enough to play a true center position.  

 

The reason I made this fanpost was an attempt to accentuate part of the positive of the Blazers right now, to provide an opportunity for people to praise Mr. Aldridge's uncanny transformation from soft jump-shooting forward to true, beasting power forward, and to foster some debate about relative quality of our bigs.  I think they are quite good.
