Greene: Marcus Camby Says LaMarcus Aldridge Is A Future Hall Of Famer

Lang Greene of caught up with Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby at a recent charity game in Houston. Camby, despite looking incredibly lonely in the picture to the right, had nothing but praise for Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge.

Veteran center Marcus Camby believes Aldridge has the goods, even if he doesn't receive the mainstream attention bestowed upon his peers.

"When Brandon [Roy] went down, I think the franchise became LaMarcus's and he grabbed hold of the reigns and never let go," Camby told HOOPSWORLD at the John Lucas charity game. "I think this guy is a future Hall of Famer and a perennial All-Star."

"I've always seen the potential in him as an opposing player going against him," Camby added. "But having been his teammate for the past two years I get to see his progress on a daily basis. I mean his upside is tremendous. He's a big guy who does it all. He can shoot, play with his back to the basket and the most important thing about him is he's so unselfish and he's a great teammate."
