lol i love how everyone is

lol i love how everyone is pulling every white center there is out of the hat to compare Aldrich to. ill Bet Greg Ostertag, and John Bryant are next.

honestly i think hes a lot like Kendrick Perkins hes a great rebounder has good size, and length, and a great post defender not great offensivly but shoots a high percentage and gives you a little more than garbage points.

Lafrentz was pretty dece'

Lafrentz was pretty dece' before his ACL injury. I don't think Aldrich has the range Raef had though.

Kendrick without the

Kendrick without the attitude, but Aldrich doesn't come even close to having the same strength, I think Perkins came into the league at about 300 lbs at the age of 18.

If he works on his outside

If he works on his outside jumper, which has already seen drastic improvement from when he first came to Kentucky. I can also ask, "Can D-Wade play the 1?" Yes.

Can "The Great Wall" play the 2? Yes.
