    From SLAMOnline-

     Aldridge and longtime T25-U25 mainstay, Brandon Roy (he’s since graduated from the list and is no longer eligible), have headed a strong youth movement in Portland. Honestly, B. Roy has been THE guy, but Aldridge is the Robin to Roy’s Batman or the Barney to his Fred, if you prefer. As mentioned earlier, this power forward has a killer mid-range shot, but there are countless concerns about his lack of physicality across all facets of the game. I think building muscle can only help him, but for Aldridge, improving his inside play will take more of a mental effort than anything else. CONTINUE READING>>>
    #9 is about right for Aldridge in my opinion. I do think they have some guys too high and low. J-Smoove is not the 4th best under 25 and Brook Lopez got shafted big time. Also, where is Batum? He's certainly better than Marvin Williams, Lou Williams, and Wilson Chandler among others. What do you think?

    Derick Rose and Tyreke Evans should be higher. Not sure I'm buying the Josh Smith love either. Beasley has no business in the top 20 and yes, where is Nico? I wonder where Greg would be on this list had it not been for his injuries? My guess Top 5. Hopefully, he makes a splash next year and garners that ranking!

    JR Smith is overrated. He plays with a me-first persona (highlighted by the play in the playoffs where he tried to score 4 on 5, while Melo was down on the floor injured) and has one of the lowest basketball IQ's on the planet. While we have Wilson Chandler who has contributed to how many of the Knicks 20-something wins? I have a hard time putting players on a pedestal who put up hollow stats on losing teams. Batum makes his team better and it wasn't a co-incidence that our play dropped off in the playoffs after he re-aggravated his shoulder injury.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
