Default Olympics-Aldridge

Am I the only one that thinks the Olympic team should have taken Aldridge with them? They don't have a lot of size in the middle - Howard is the only real center in the lineup.

I can hardly wait to see what he's capable of with scoring duo of Bayless and Roy and with Oden in the middle.........

Well, considering the competition, size isn't, from what I've seen, a huge concern. It looks to me that the focus is on speed and accurate shooting, instead of strength and inside presence.

If they were gonna bring another big man they would want someone that doesnt tend to play soft.

But you are right in saying size is a big concern. Amare wanted to play but he had to pull out to give his knee a rest.

They could have really used a guy like Chandler who could defend and body up some guys.
