I believe that even if they traded down to number 5 in the draft, they would choose a body of Marcus Williams. AND BTW people, Aldridge is having an INDIVIDUAL workout this Friday. So why is he taking these individual workouts? Is he scared he might not go number 1?
Some guys feel like the GM's should already know enough about them (by watching them in games) that they wouldn't have to show what they can do against opponents, and would rather take the workout as an oppurtunity to show other parts of their game which have potential and could fit a team.
I don't really buy that excuse though, I think if you wanna prove your the best you have to prove it against other people. To me, it shows their scared of haivng a bad workout and hurting their stock, which may not say anything about how they will do in the league, but for some guys it might.
