Nicolas Batum: 'LaMarcus Aldridge is NBA's best power forward'

Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum believes that LaMarcus Aldridge is the best power forward in the NBA.

Nicolas Batum has described LaMarcus Aldridge as the "best power forward in the league" following his 31-point performance for the Portland Trail Blazers against the Houston Rockets last night.

The 28-year-old, who also had a career-high 25 rebounds, has emerged as an early favourite to be named this season's MVP after averaging 23.5 points per game so far this season.

Aldridge's teammate told reporters: "That's the best game I've seen LA play, ever. He has improved every year, and right now he is the best power forward in the league, no doubt. And I don't think he's even reached his full potential yet."

Aldridge was last week's Western Conference player of the week.
