Bargnani is taller and heavier than Aldridge.
Aldridge 6-11¼ 234
Bargnani 7-1¼ 249
They have the same reach, so that would mean that Aldridge would have a slightly longer wing span.
Apparently Bargnani has been working on his post moves all year, but I'm sure that Aldridge currently is better in the post.
