The No Longer Ignorable LaMarcus Aldridge

If this has been posted before, please remove, but I had not seen it yet. Via Tyler Sherkin at RealGm: "OK, so he’s posting up well and he’s doing a very good job of drawing fouls, which is making the lion’s share of the difference in raising his scoring efficiency over years past. As ever, Aldridge continues to be a big with good range who moves well without the ball and has a pretty strong impact on his team’s chances of winning. He’s actually 12th in the league in win shares at the moment... About the only negative things that can be said about Aldridge are that he’s probably going to see his averages dip back to mortal levels once those minutes come down... Aldridge’s omission from the All-Star game was a fairly big mistake by the coaches. He’s been the driving force behind the success of the Blazers thus far and they are on pace for 47 wins despite significant roster problems (mainly Roy playing only 23 games to date and likely never returning to the form he displayed in recent years). That’s worth some note."
