Blazers Review: Damian Lillard

Trail Blazers Review: Damian Lillard in 2015-16 Damian Lillard was the only returning starter from two consecutive playoff campaigns for the Trail Blazers. LaMarcus Aldridge departed to San Antonio over the summer, leaving Lillard as the clear-cut leader in Portland.

Expect an even better LaMarcus Aldridge next year

And he was better than expected in Year One. The Spurs seem a million miles away from the NBA landscape at the moment. The Warriors and Thunder are locked in a compelling, if not always competitive, Western Conference Finals and both look like safe bets to be in contention for the foreseeable future with most of their key pieces in their primes. By contrast, San Antonio has more uncertainty about their roster than they've had in nearly two decades. We don't know if Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili will return for another year --I'd still lean against it for both-- or what each will be able to...

Could Al Horford Become The Next LaMarcus Aldridge In Portland?

The Portland Trail Blazers used to have a dominant big man who provided a range of skills and veteran leadership. They could potentially have that again after the 2016 NBA free agency season kicks off in a few weeks. It's easy to forget this, seeing as the Trail Blazers just got done capturing the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference and winning a round in the playoffs to boot, but everything that Portland did this season was all just the very beginning of a long-term plan. This year was remarkable, but it was not a final destination. No - if anything, it was just a rest stop on a trip to...

Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge garner All-NBA selections

GIF Breakdown: San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Game 2

LaMarcus Aldridge had his second jaw-dropping game in a row, here's a review of some of his buckets. LaMarcus Aldridge hit 15 of his 21 field goal attempts in the Spurs' loss to the Thunder in game 2, finding success from all over the floor and against whoever was tasked with guarding him. San Antonio got its first points on a one-dribble Aldridge jumper over Serge Ibaka. Aldridge has had his way with Ibaka in the first two games of the series, abusing the smaller defender and getting pretty much whatever he wants on the floor. Wide-open 15-footer for Aldridge? That's automatic. Steven...
