    LaMarcus Aldridge Shocking Stat

    We have a lot of people here who overrate the heck out of Aldridge and thought it would be interesting to share this "dominant" post players stat.

    112 of Aldridge's 160 FG attempts this season are from midrange according to Blazers writer Sean Highkin. Combine this with 6.5 rpg this year and 7.7 career and I can't comprehend why so many call him a top 3 PF or even the best.

    He's honestly like Amare in his prime. But with better defense.

    Not really. Prime Amare IMO was a way better player. Could move and was a threat to take you to the hoop ever play

    Love says hello

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Let's place Kevin Love on that Phoenix team. What do you think he does? He is already an extremely efficient scorer with great range and solid finishing ability and can murder in the PnR don't you think he's going to thrive with Nash?

    And Duncan. And KG. But he was an offensive beast. Pretty much unstoppable on the pick and roll. LA is NOWHERE near Amare.

    I'd still give to edge to Amare to to be honest. Stat was a beast come playoff time. Love? We'll see.

    Lets all be honest though... Any power forward who would've had the opportunity to play with Nash in their prime would have inflated numbers. Nash is just that good. So I don't think it's fair to compare the two in their primes.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    There is not a comparison. Amare in his prime was a freak.

    People forget he is the same guy who dominated a prime Tim Duncan in the playoffs

    Amare was great no doubt, but does that mean LA couldn't have been scary good with a prime Nash as well? I think he could've been.

    their H2H playoff stats tell a bit different story. But Amare was an absolute beast in his prime with Nash. Nearly unstoppable and a great finisher and posed a lot of problems for Duncan and the Spurs.

    As for LA were people really under impression that he was a down low banger? He has moves but he mostly is in the high post and pick and pops.
