A quick look LaMarcus Aldridge's first year with the Spurs

Check out some of the best plays from the New Kid on the Left Block's first year with the Spurs.

Here's some of his top highlights from this past year! LA's first season in SA was...

Solving for the Spurs' three biggest offseason needs

The Spurs head into free agency in flux. They won 67 games and don't need to hit the reset button. At the same time, they have holes to fill if they want to beat the Warriors or Thunder in the playoffs The Spurs find themselves in a bind. They won 67 games but face an unclear future.
