Aldridge: Off to a good start!
Posted by Erik on October 31, 2007
LaMarcus Aldridge, in a bad matchup (SA Spurs), blocked 2 bogies, picked a pocket, grabbed 3 boards, and scored a scorching 27 points, at an efficient 12-19 and 3-3 from the field and line respectively.
Yes, yes… I know its only the first game of the regular season. But that was a hell of a performance, considering his team’s matchup! I’m drooling to see his numbers against a less seasoned and less defensively minded team.
Fine, Duncan ended up with a sweeter spread (24, 13, 1), but at what round did most owners pick up old TD? For his average draft position, Aldridge still appears to be steal! He’s starting to look like his value is worth that of the Al Jefferson draft position region.
I own LaMarcus in a couple of leagues, and am now proud to say that he’s made my official “My Boy!” list (as coined by Rick). Stay tuned as we follow his explosive season!
