It looks like there will be two Longhorns playing in the next 5-10 All-Star Games. No one doubted LaMarcus Aldridge’s talent coming out of Texas in 2006. At 6’11 240 with a 7’5 wingspan, a 9’3 standing reach and a vertical over 30′, he’s one of the most athletic big men in the league. Combine that with a soft shooting touch out to 20 feet, and you’ve got the most complete power forward in the NBA. As the primary offensive option, Aldridge’s usage rating jumped from 22.9 to 25.7, and while creating more shots would make most players less efficient, his field goal percentage actually improved slightly to 50%. There’s really no one in the NBA who can physically match-up with him; he can get around bigger defenders and he can power through or shoot over smaller ones. And while his stat-line is impressive at 22/9/2, his offensive dominance is obscured because he plays on the league’s slowest paced team.
