Just a quick reminder: Today is the best day of basketball in Portland since the first round of the 2011 NBA playoffs ended.

At 4 PM, join The Basketball Jones, the NBA blogosphere's premier podcast, as they record a live show at On Deck Sports Bar in NW Portland. Dwight Jaynes and I will be there. The show will run for an hour and then segue into pre-game mingling. Full details on Facebook.

At 7:30 PM, Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge is hosting the Rip City Basketball Classic at the University of Portland's Chiles Center. The game is scheduled to feature Aldridge, Kevin Durant, Wesley Matthews, Brandon Roy, Jamal Crawford and a host of other NBA players. More details here.

Check back later tonight for full coverage of Aldridge's event.

Hope to see you at both!
