The big man is on his fifth season with San Antonio. He is the only lone All-Star for the Spurs last season. Leading the team in scoring and rebounding. Still a formidable force inside and the best big man taking a midrange.
The Spurs had the best defensive guard duos now. Means it will lessen for Aldridge the burden on the defense. With Jakob Poeltl shows he can utilize his game. It shows that they are winning when they compliment each other.
Also, the addition of Carroll can help him. The spacing he can give for Aldridge down low. The big man had a partially guaranteed contract after the season. Already a 34-year-old he needs to be a valuable contributor. Either Murray or White plays the point, Aldridge will score a lot on pick and roll and pick and pop. No more experimental rotation needed. DeRozan already in the second year with the team. It will take more opportunity to score for Aldridge when Demar attracts on defense.
Expects Aldridge to be an All-Star again comes February. Big numbers coming for him and the go-to guy. Average of 22 points, 9 boards, 2 assists and 2 blocks per game. Shooting 53 percent from the field and win one Conference player of the week.
