LaMarcus Aldridge relishes his All-Star appearance as a throwback big man

He also had a surprise visitor at his press conference. Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge is in Charlotte participating in his seventh All-Star weekend and third as a Spur. In a near 30-minute interview during his press conference, he had plenty to say about playing for the Spurs and other topics. He talked about how he feels Gregg Popovich’s minutes management is extending his career: “It’s definitely extended it because Pop (Gregg Popovich) believes in saving your body. We do a lot of things to try to prolong our career and just be fresh. I think over the years that adds up as far...

The act of swapping jerseys has become a post-game culture in the NBA this season. Fans have seen players from this generation ask future Hall of Famers Dirk Nowitzki, Dwyane Wade, and Vince Carter to exchange jerseys with them. It is now a tradition that symbolizes appreciation and respect. But for San Antonio Spurs’ LaMarcus […] The post Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge would like to swap jerseys with Blazers’ Damian Lillard appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge to DeMar DeRozan — ‘You’re going to be here a long time, I’ve only got a couple of years left’

If you stopped watching the NBA during the summer of 2016, you probably would not even recognize the San Antonio Spurs anymore. Gone are Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, with Duncan and Ginobili riding off into retirement and Parker signing with the Charlotte Hornets this past offseason. Oh, and Kawhi Leonard?

The Mid Three plan on creating their own Spurs legacy

The Mid Three plan on creating their own Spurs legacy

Aldridge, Gay and DeRozan want to be more than than just the core that kept the Spurs competitive between eras. All Spurs fans should know what the ”Mid Three” refers to by now. For anyone who doesn’t, it’s the trio of LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan, but why they’re called that may depend on who you ask. To some, it’s because they are the ultimate NBA trio of mid-range shooters, playing a throwback style of offense that seems out of place in today’s NBA but is effective and hard to defend nonetheless. To others, that name might simply be a reference to three...

LaMarcus Aldridge is boxing out like a champ

LaMarcus Aldridge is boxing out like a champ

The big man is sacrificing his own rebounding numbers to help the team. The hectic pace of the regular season makes it impossible to spend time on everything that deserves attention. With the All-Star break, we have opportunity to revisit some aspects of the Spurs’ season that have gone unexplored. Let’s start with LaMarcus Aldridge and the underrated work he’s done on the boards. Saying that a big man is a 20 and 10 guy is a shorthand for saying he’s a star. By that very narrow definition, LaMarcus Aldridge falls short. His scoring, a stout 21 points per game on 51 percent...

Aldridge on Lillard: ‘We’ve Fixed Our Relationship’

Aldridge reflects on the past and present with Jabari Young of the Athletic. Time has seemingly healed all wounds for former Portland Trail Blazers teammates Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge.

There were narratives of jealousy and insecurity...

LaMarcus Aldridge carried the Spurs to a much needed victory

The big fella play down the stretch clinched a W that San Antonio had to have. There are a lot of reasons the Spurs found themselves in a 1 possession game down the stretch against the Grizzlies on Tuesday night. Missed switches, miscommunication and poor help on one end combined with wasted possessions and bad shot selection on the other provided more than enough opportunities for the Grizzlies to turn what had once been a double digit lead into a 1 point game. But there’s only 1 reason the Spurs held on for the win: LaMarcus Aldridge. Trailing 99-98, Memphis brought the ball into the...

San Antonio at Memphis, Final Score: Spurs end losing streak with 108-107 win over Grizzlies

The Spurs head into the All-Star break on a high note. Kinda. The San Antonio Spurs headed into game 5 of the Rodeo Road trip desperate to end a 4-game losing streak and turn things back around before the All-Star break. After a lazy first quarter, the Spurs’ offense came alive in the second and third quarters before the defense held on for a 108-107 win over the pesky, new-look Memphis Grizzlies. LaMarcus Aldridge and Patty Mills each had 22 points for the Spurs, while newly-acquired Grizzlies Avery Bradley and Jonas Valanciunas had 33 and 23 points, respectively. Random...
