Don’t worry Portland, just because we don’t like your owner doesn’t mean we don’t like you.

So the NBA player charity game tour may swing through the Pacific Northwest as well. LaMarcus Aldridge is working to set up a game in Portland, the Oregonian reports.

The Trail Blazers forward announced on Twitter that he will host an exhibition basketball game Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at an undisclosed Portland location.

“Rip City is having a basketball game!” Aldridge said, via twitter.

Aldridge just played in Kevin Durant’s game in Oklahoma City last weekend. His Rip City game may well come together, although until I hear a venue and tickets going on sale (and what the charity will be) consider me cautious.

Still, it would be good to take this game to Portland, since it doesn’t look like we’ll have any NBA ball for a while.

    Too bad a small market such as Portland cant keep its young players in Rip City… Oh wait I forgot Aldridge re-signed in Portland before hitting the open market, or “restricted-open market” in his case..
