Palmer: Blazer LaMarcus Aldridge Not A Top 5 PF

77

In a surprising move, ESPN.com's Chris Palmer does not include Portland Trail Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge in his top five power forwards list. His list, in order: Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers), Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks), Amar'e Stoudemire (New York Knicks), Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves), Pau Gasol (Los Angeles Lakers). Regarding Gasol, he writes... --------------------- I won't sit here and try to pretend that the dismal postseason during which Gasol was a virtual nonfactor -- with averages of 13 points and 7.8 rebounds on 42 percent shooting -- isn't affecting his place in these rankings. In fact, he could have easily been swapped out for the Portland Trailblazers' LaMarcus Aldridge. And at 31, Gasol's game could either take a slide or bounce back in a big way. The jury's still out, but if Gasol brings it like his old self, then he's still one of the best around. --------------------- My list, in order: Nowitzki, Gasol, Stoudemire, Aldridge, Griffin. Your list? In the comments. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
