LaMarcus Aldridge 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

He went back to life last season and that's because kawhi isn't around. '16 vs '17 averages are

 

fg% .477 vs .510 

ft% .812 vs .837

ppg 17.3 vs 23.1 

reb 7.3 vs 8.5 

ast 1.9 vs 2.0 (same)

stls and blks  0.6 and 1.2 are the same

 

do we see the same decline same as '16 with derozan (a guy who jacks a lot of shots more than kawhi) or just a bit as he's now comfortable with the spurs and maybe (just maybe) pop can change derozan the way he plays.

I could see him stay the same or even improve. Had NOBODY to take any pressure off of him on the offensive end, so any shots he's not getting will be balanced by an (even further) improvement in efficiency. Easy top 15 selection.

Put up enough bricks to build a chalet in the Swiss Alps.

 

But can't complain about 21/19 with 3 blocks.  

 

Animal!!!

I think we're gonna see a lot of high rebound games from him, now that Dejounte isn't there to steal 7-8 of them a game.  Double digit average is quite possible...

Absolute beast tonight but what's up w/ the FT shooting? Deandre Jordan is shooting better

Seriously this dude was supposed to be a FT anchor for me and he's shooting sub-60% on the year..

Really was forced to take him at 35 in one league since all the players I wanted were sniped, but he's been fun to own so far. If ft% is the only issue, im not that worried.

getting worked over by a rookie, and getting shut down 0-7 so far by Ayton--the worse defensive center in the league.  PATHETIC

Aldridge has been a headache this season with his efficiency and I think why he is struggling is that he is the starting C.

The past couple of seasons Gasol was starting C and Aldridge was the PF.

Maybe because he is dealing with bigger and tougher competition at C, he can't take full advantage of them as compared to other PF's of similar or smaller size.

 

I hope this guy starts getting it together and performs to his efficient ways.

I wonder how much is:

- Just Him

- Derozan's impact

- Not having Murray who was lost for the season

- Pop?

- Team chemistry

 

They have missed a lot of pieces including Murray, Gay, White, Gasol, etc... and they lost slomo. 

Some of this will fix itself since even his ft shooting has been off.

Big loof is huge but is content jacking up 50 15ft jumpers a game instead of taking it inside .  No wonder he's shooting 42%  A larger version of DSJ.
