Aldridge Says He is the #1 Guy, and Plans to Stay in Portland

LA had a lot to say to Chris Haynes. "I am the number one guy ... They [Trail Blazers organization] believed in me and I believe in myself and I think I'm going to lead this team to the promise land." "They drafted him [Lillard] as the franchise point guard ... I definitely see us creating chemistry over the years and becoming a very dynamic one-two punch." "It's always going to be articles about me trying to leave, that's what sells papers. I'm not worried about that. This is a good challenge for me to try to get better and try to lead this team. I've always wanted my own team and I have it." It sounds as if he likes being the big fish in a small pond, so we may not need to worry about him doing a Howard after a sour year or two.
