Last night the San Antonio Spurs were eliminated from the 2017 NBA Playoffs in a ignoble sweep at the hands of the Golden State Warriors. With Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker both out of the series, San Antonio relied heavily on former Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge to carry the team. While Aldridge managed an impressive 28 points in Game 1, he spent the final three games shooting 15-39 on his way to a decidedly unimpressive 15 ppg average during the series. It was the latest down cycle in an off-and-on tenure with the Spurs, prompting us to engage in conversation with J.R. Wilco of sister site Pounding the Rock about Aldridge and his future in San Antonio.
What say you, Trail Blazers fans? You know Aldridge as well as anyone. Let’s say he became available this summer. Would you be at all interested in having him back in a Blazers uniform? What would you bid to regain his services, were it possible?
