LaMarcus Aldridge says he can be an All-Star again and has been working on his shot all summer.
Aldridge has made five All-Star teams and last year was the first time he didn’t make it since 2012. With the overload of talent in Western Conference currently, it may be difficult. He worked on his three-ball all summer per Popovich’s request and may improve on his 0.3 treys per game last year. If he does, it should help his fantasy value a lot. His scoring and rebounding were at their lowest marks since his rookie year with 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds. He salvaged his fantasy value thanks to his 0.6 steals and 1.2 blocks and hovered around top-50 per-game value. He should be at least as good this year. He was the 67th overall pick in our Slow Mock Draft.
