Bargnani Vs. Alridge . Press Refresh Button .

After their rookie season , Raptors' Andrea Bargnani came up ahead of fellow rookie LaMarcus Alridge of the Portland Trailblazers. Slightly ahead .Their stats confirmed that. The rookie of the year runner up ( to another Blazer Brandon Roy ) started timidly but improved his game starting midway last season while Alridge struggled and showed his real game only at the last quarter of the season. Some Raptors fans, and definitely those in Portland, said that the Texas native is the more versatile and far effective guy. The same views as Bargnani's teammate and fellow Texan , Chris Bosh, had before the '07 drafting began . Let's take a look at the long tape ( both are nearly 7 feet tall ) of each player including their pre season stats to date :

LaMarcus Alridge Andrea Bargnani

6'11'', 211 lbs.
19.5 ppg
6.8 rpg
1.8 apg
+20 EFF.

Andrea Bargnani

7'0'' , 250 lbs.
15.0 ppg
5.2 rpg
1.0 apg
14 EFF.

Interesting how their stats are almost the same even up to now going to the 2007-08 season.However , I give my vote to Andrea Bargnani to come up ahead again this year because Alridge is reportedly injured (toe) early this season . Bargnani will continue to develop his game unhampered. Like he continued to develop his hairdo !
