LaMarcus Aldridge drops 38 on Thunder, outplays Durant (VIDEO)

Dec 5, 2013, 3:09 AM EDT

I said it in the PBT nightly grades post and I’ll say it here — I think LaMarcus Aldridge is the best four in the league right now. I’d take him over Kevin Love, Carmelo Anthony, Tim Duncan or anyone else you can throw out there right now (excluding LeBron James, who plays kind of a hybrid four a lot for Miami but that is a different system).

Aldridge showed how special he is with his 38 points on Wednesday night against the Thunder — Aldridge was the best player on the floor. Better than that Kevin Durant guy (who was pretty good with 33 of his own). Aldridge had 28 and 10 a couple of nights ago against the Pacers.

Thing is, Aldridge has been pretty much this good for years, the talent around him hasn’t been as good so he drew a lot more defensive attention. Now… well check out those highlights.

    Well you got one thing right – Aldridge is the same guy he’s always been.

    Antisrtatfordian, why must you troll? It’s okay though, your comments reek of jealousy. RIGHT NOW…the blazers are the best team in the league. As my sister used to say growing up, deal with it…

    Antisrtatfordian and his ilk are pretty mcuh the biggest reason everyone wants the Heat to lose this year. Mostly because if they do, LeBron is gone, and him and their “fanbase” goes back to 5,000 a night.

    KD is the 2nd best player in the NBA. One game does not change that.
