NBA Draft | NBA Mock Draft | 2006 Draft Profiles | Message Board

By Jeff Fox


NBA Draft: LaMarcus Aldridge


College: Texas

Class: Sophomore



Position: PF

Height: 6’10”

Weight: 237lbs


Accolades: McDonald’s High School All American (04)


Scouting Report: Classic modern age NBA post player – long, athletic and versatile.  Can score, rebound and block shots in the post.

Strengths:  Very long body allows him to block/alter shots and grab plenty of boards.  Very high release on his jumper allows him to get off shots in the post over large players.  Can also step out and hit the mid-range jumper.  Very smart player who knows how to use his body to get great post position and offensive rebounding position.

Weaknesses: Experience.  Due to a hip injury only played 16 games his freshman year.  Still needs to get stronger physically to dominate in the NBA.

Projected 2006 Draft Range: Top 5.

Consensus:  Should be a dynamite NBA player.  Being compared to Chris Bosh, but Aldridge is a lot bigger and stronger than Bosh was coming out of college.  Should have a long NBA career due to his versatility, length and smarts on the court.
