so why isnt he gaining weight from when he knocked out of the ncaa tourney untill now? at one stage he was meant to be 240, or 237 but hes come in at 234, so hes obviously been working out, but hes losing weight when if he wants to be effective in the nba
its alright being rail thin if your quick like garnett or chis bosh, but aldridge is nowhere near as quick as them
Aldridge will be just fine. He's coming in at 234? That's more than most of the skinny inside players. Garnett came not that much over 210-215, and is around 240 now. When you see the skinny inside players, 225 is pretty much the default, and Aldridge already has that beat with a good frame on which to add some more weight.
why am i the first person in this thread to bring up wingspan?
what do camby, AK47 and aldridge have in common? they all have 7'0+ wingspans... thats the real reason why it's still going to be tough to back down aldridge... and besideds... isn't he like 20? who here stopped growing when they hit 20? if even you didn't get any taller, you can't possibly tell me you didn't fill out your frame.
aldridge is going to average atleast 1.5 bpg in his rookie campaign, regardless of what team he's on.
