Spears: LaMarcus Aldridge Exploring Spain, Turkey, Australia?

77
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that Portland Trail Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge is once again considering his overseas options during the ongoing NBA lockout. ------------------------------ Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge will take a closer look at his options abroad. Aldridge said he is attracted to possibly playing in Spain, Turkey or Australia. He isn’t optimistic the lockout will end soon. "It could get bad," Aldridge said. "We thought it was going to be a good negotiation this time. We didn’t actually think this was going to happen. But we prepared for the worst. It’s a little more dramatic for me now that two weeks of the season are canceled. "If this is what it takes, then I guess we have to do it. I definitely want to play. I don’t think fans really understand it. We didn’t want this lockout; the owners wanted it. I’m reading that the fans are attacking the players because they think we are not working with the owners, but we are. The owners are not working with us." ------------------------------ Aldridge first wondered about the international option in July and was still interested in August and September. This makes four straight months. Aldridge could very well be the Cal Ripken, Jr. of expressing interest in playing overseas when this is all said and done. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
