Still can't buy into this. POR is only 3 games above .500 in spite of the fact that the roster around Aldridge is pretty damn good. He's avging 23/9 on 50% shooting with about a steal and a block per game. Decent numbers but I'd still like to see more before putting a "franchise" tag on him.
Could easily argue that Bosh
had been better than him this season (partic. with Wade out) and we all know he's not a franchise talent right?
My current list off the top of my head would include....
Pierce (getting a bit old though)
I'm on the fence about Durant and Paul...
