    So why is LaMarcus Aldridge not labeled 'soft'?

    I always see so much praise for this guy in this forum it is RIDICULOUS

    He is 6'11, 240, always in great shape and has never averaged 9 rebounds or above, He has never made it out of the first round, He never averaged over 2 blocks... With that said he is always labeled as a top 5 PF & sometimes top 3 here

    This guy has 'soft' & 'overrated' written all over him...

    Mind you I don't hate LMA at all, he's a very good player in this league and is no question a top 6-10 PF. My issue is with the people that place him above Chris Bosh and even Blake Griffin to an extent. He's been good on the boards to start the year, but he's never been a consistently good rebounder and he makes little to no impact on the defensive end.

    Because "soft" is based on perception.

    Because he's the flavor of the month.

    Mind you he put up those big numbers last year on a bad team with no other legit scoring options.

    People trash Amare for his rebounding, yet Amare averaged about 8rpg last year in 32mpg, LMA did 8rpg in 36mpg!

    LMA's career FG% is 49%, Amare in his worst year last year shot 48%. Actually Amare's PER 36 offensive stats were pretty close to LMA's, yet Amare is "done" and nowhere near a top 5 pf anymore according to most.

    Same with Bosh, Amare's numbers were very similar, yet Bosh is all of a sudden a top 3 PF and Amare nowhere near him.

    Its all about the flavor of the month.

    Love, Duncan, Griffin, Bosh, Randolph, Dirk, hell even Gasol...

    & Amare has even averaged more rebounds & blocks than him in the past.. As a matter of a fact his highest rpg in his career is the same as Brook Lopez's lol.. that guy is SOFT

    yep, right aroung 50% shooting, not great, and still horrible rebounding and still couldn't get out of the first round.

    He only scores more than the Amare's and Bosh's because he's the only real offensive option on his team and shoots more and plays alot more minutes.
