McGuire: Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge Could Wind Up In "Bloodsport Rivalry" With Fellow Forwards

Could Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge find himself in the middle of the NBA's best rivalry in the future?

Craig Mitchelldyer-US PRESSWIRE

Aaron McGuire of Gothic Ginobili writes in an ESPN.com 5-on-5 that Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge could find himself in the middle of the NBA's best rivalry in the future.

5. What will be the best NBA rivalry in the near future?

McGuire: Sometime in three or four years, I think the rather chippy three-way feud between LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love will blossom into a full-on bloodsport rivalry. There's already bad blood from Aldridge because of his 2011 All-Star snub. Perhaps one falls off and leaves a traditional two-man rivalry, but even if that happens, this combination's a winner -- some set of these three should form one of the NBA's hottest tickets in the near future.
