Adam arm wrecked here, coming to you, talking about the tweet that waas Dame Lillard, expressing an interest in bringing back his old friend LaMarcus, older just to the Portland Trail Blazers of the Markets came out.
00:00:17
Said you wouldn't, wouldn't hate it, could be interested in it and had to kind of walk that back.
00:00:21
Obviously, in the age of Twitter and social media, in terms of his comfort level being in San Antonio, where he stands on retirement, all those good things.
00:00:28
But when we think about what could have been potentially in Portland, if LaMarcus never leaves there, was there an opportunity? Maybe for this team tohave championship aspirations if they had been able to keep the big fellow there instead of going over Now these last five years there in San Antonio, you know.
00:00:47
Ah, career 19.
00:00:49
5, almost 20 point per game player in the markets.
00:00:51
Aldridge, 49% from the field, never quite evolved as the as the game of all didn't really necessarily get his three point shooting up that we had improved a couple of these seasons in the latter stages, but 31% from the outside.
00:01:04
So in terms of that player that conflicts with his size and give you some range on the perimeter never quite got to that level of it.
00:01:11
The interesting thing about it is, too.
00:01:13
Go back to these Portland Trail Blazers seasons and think about the fact that prior to Dame Lillard, you know, was it 09 toe 10.
00:01:22
You know 809 season through the ah 2010 2011 season, three consecutive first round exits under McMillan there for the Portland Trail Blazers.
00:01:30
Then Dame Lillard comes in in 2012 2013.
00:01:33
And even though they have a few years there with each other again, they lose in the seventies.
00:01:37
Bounced in the first round.
00:01:38
Lose in the semi's again.
00:01:41
You know, I don't know.
00:01:43
As as you look over the Western Conference and you think about these last season's when LaMarcus has been over there in San Antonio.
00:01:51
Obviously having him there in Portland could have Ah, help this team in the playoffs.
00:01:57
You think about the cast of characters that have gone through there, likes of cancer, Myers.
00:02:01
Now Whiteside is there on certainly offers a different dynamic.
00:02:05
Aminu Collins.
00:02:07
You know this rotating cast that's never been at the same level of the market soldiers.
00:02:11
So you never had the type of reliability in a power forward slash center, depending on where he was lining up on the court.
00:02:17
So they never necessarily replace that production that you got from him.
00:02:21
But with these last couple of seasons back to back, 04 sweet exits for the Portland Trail Blazers.
00:02:27
Think about the idea of the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers.
00:02:32
So with LaMarcus, Aldridge had swayed the difference in the Western Conference and been able to elevate the Portland Trail was, Let's just say contracts and all that kind of stuff being equal.
00:02:41
I don't know if they're getting past, you know, the Golden State Warriors to make it to the finals.
00:02:45
And then if they make it to the finals, maybe you start to have that thought in that conversation around against the Cleveland Cavaliers and some of the teams that they were bringing their with LeBron James, those could have made for some interesting battles.
00:02:56
And obviously, over this last stretch of seasons, you look at the Western Conference and think about how much more competitive it's been out West relative to the Eastern Conference and an easier road for a team like Cleveland or in this past year, the Toronto Raptors come up right? So many players move around that I honestly, the Portland Trail is just kind of fall into that mix that they were in the Eastern Conference.
00:03:18
Man, you're talking about maybe a real different scenario about what their aspirations could have been and holding onto a player like that.
00:03:24
The other pieces to you.
00:03:26
Think about a player like McCollum and just to get that idea as well.
00:03:29
2013 14.
00:03:30
That's when he comes in as a rookie.
00:03:31
Only plays about 12 minutes in game.
00:03:33
It's the following season that he takes that big jump, so you never get an opportunity.
00:03:37
These guys air between McCollum.
00:03:40
You talk about Daimler knowledge.
00:03:41
It's the big players that have been there on this roster over the years with Portland.
00:03:45
They never They weren't all there together at their crimes, right? They're staggered out now.
00:03:49
Dame and McCollum are together there, but Aldrich, a few years older than Dame Dame a couple of years older than a McCollum.
00:03:56
So you never got to see this all kind of formulae, but you look around the N d A.
00:04:00
And you can think about all the different combinations of players and opportunities.
00:04:05
Missed opportunities. Goto.
00:04:07
Okay, see? And think about when they let James Harden.
00:04:10
You got James Harden out of there Now all of the players with with Westbrook and obviously Cady had all moved on and gone to different places.
00:04:18
Winning championships In Katie's case, obviously, with the Warriors now in Brooklyn with the Brooklyn Nets and an opportunity toe, hopefully achieve something there.
00:04:26
Westbrook now ends up back with James Harden now in Houston.
00:04:29
So you know these air teams that at the time you maybe don't know where a player is going to go in terms of the trajectory on missing out on a chance to achieve something when it comes to certainly playoffs, getting deeper platforms and championship aspirations.
00:04:44
The other side of this no, too, I would think is, you know that Hall of Fame kind of mentality about where these players could have been.
00:04:51
And just as the footnote to this conversation currently, right now you go overto pro, you go on a basketball reference.
00:04:57
Excuse me.
00:04:58
You take a look at the probability percentages on Hall of Fame channel to see for anyone active in the league or otherwise, and LaMarcus Olders is down that list.
00:05:07
They're coming in at 1 19 on the current lineup there at 51% probability.
00:05:13
Make Hall of Fame at the back end of his career with maybe just another couple of seasons to go here.
00:05:20
Ah, I would say that he he's that bubble kind of player and unfortunately, was mentioned earlier.
00:05:25
The evolution of the MBA, the way the game changed, wanting those big studio stretch out the floor a little bit more is probably something that he would've had to been on the front end of developing in order to start to really involve his game to another level that would have fit even better in today's MBA.
00:05:41
And then you think about his time initially with the Spurs, trying to make some adjustments there on get fitting into the Popovich rotation and what that team is built around a full team mode.
00:05:53
It's not a singular player that's gonna lead them there, and certainly not order to this stage is career.
00:05:57
Though he never really peaked over 2122 points a season, had a couple of his best scoring seasons with the Spurs to out of his five years with them.
00:06:07
He has beaten his career average in terms of points per game, so he still has risen up.
00:06:12
So a little bit of step back this past shortened season, it will be interesting to see how the caps off his career.
00:06:17
Hey, would you like to see him go back and get together with Dame Lillard for one little run? Two way farewell, the fans? Why not the other final footnote to game? Willard is already about 68% in terms of his Hall of Fame candidacy.
00:06:31
So could they have helped one another? Certainly with the marks, his number's probably look a little bit stronger at this point.
00:06:37
If he had stayed in Portland, hard to tell, given with McCollum's rise, and you need to have ball in the hand of some of these scores around him.
00:06:45
But he's the phone conversations we get Tau have.
00:06:47
At the very least, Oldrich has always been that kind of just professional player.
00:06:52
Go out, give you consistency and you love to see and get a chance to maybe get one of those rings in the latter stages of his career doesn't look like his current team is gonna be in that position.
00:07:01
And even if you were toe get back in there with Portland, they still feel like there's some.
00:07:06
There's some puzzle pieces away from getting it done.
00:07:08
Thanks for checking in with us here on SportsCastr will be coming back in early and often, always talking all things N b a news.

Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge defends hilarious response to Damian Lillard’s tweet asking him back

LaMarcus Aldridge’s recent eye-emoji response to Damian Lillard shook up San Antonio Spurs fans. The Spurs veteran insisted that he was just bored in quarantine. In an interview with Michael C. Wright of NBA.com, Aldridge said that he merely acknowledged Lillard’s response to a fan’s question. I did it. So, I don’t regret it … […]
