LaMarcus Aldridge

  1. Trail Blazers commentators really mad about Scott Brooks benching LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

    Damian Lillard, Beno Udrih, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kenyon Martin

    In the 2012 All-Star Game, LaMarcus Aldridge played fewer than 10 minutes, and he clearly wasn’t pleased with such a reduced role. Ben Golliver of Blazer’s Edge: After the game, Aldridge addressed a small group of reporters in the Mixed Zone media area, saying that he was as surprised about his playing time as everyone…

  2. Karl Malone is a big Anthony Davis fan

    NEW ORLEANS — Right now it’s a serious debate about who is the best power forward in the game — LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love lead most lists, Blake Griffin is trying to muscle in on the list, but guys like Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki still have a say in the matter. If five…

  3. Carmelo Anthony said his “first priority” is to remain a Knick, but he wants to see a plan

    Feb 14, 2014, 4:34 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences and Media Availability 2014

    NEW ORLEANS — Talk to Carmelo Anthony and it quickly becomes clear he loves being a Knick. He loves New York, he loves playing in Madison Square Garden, he loves Spike Lee, he loves everything about the experience. He also wants to win an NBA title. Are those two things compatible? Anthony is asking himself…

  4. Monday night NBA grades: All-Stars shine and a new-look Pelican

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He certainly looked like an All-Star before hopping on a plane to New Orleans — 31 points on 11-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, three assists. Granted, he was being covered by Kyle Korver…

  5. Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for win… can these two meet in playoffs, please?

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    If the playoffs started today, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers would meet in the first round… please let that happened. Defense? Who needs it? We want Blake Griffin vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. We want dunks and threes. This matchup would just be entertaining. When these two teams first met the day after Christmas…

  6. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  7. Wednesday night NBA grades: Dwight Howard looks like guy Rockets thought they signed

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:58 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why anyone would live in a dumpster for a year, voluntarily…  Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. The NBA game is in large part about exploiting mismatches. With all due respect to the solid season Miles Plumlee is having, him trying to cover Dwight Howard…

  8. The Extra Pass: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaching with Bill and Luke Walton

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…

  9. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  10. John Wall, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard lead NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 30, 2014, 7:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The fans had their say last week naming the NBA starters. This week coaches have their say getting to vote in the All-Star reserves — seven from each conference. Next the fun part comes, picking out who got snubbed. The reserves are voted on by the coaches (who only vote in their own conference and…

  11. Doc Rivers lobbied other coaches to vote DeAndre Jordan an All-Star. It won’t be enough.

    Jan 30, 2014, 2:26 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    Later on Thursday the NBA All-Star Game reserves will be announced — and in the Western Conference frontcourt a couple deserving guys will get snubbed. The fans voted in Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love as the starters. There likely will be four (maybe five) front court replacement players from a group including LaMarcus…

  12. The Extra Pass: Should Indiana be worried about its offense? And Tuesday’s recaps.

    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league. The Pacers are legitimate title contenders. They have done all that in spite of their offense. The…

  13. Lakers make it official: Kobe out at least three weeks, meaning no All-Star Game

    Jan 28, 2014, 11:43 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    LOS ANGELES — We told you word was Kobe Bryant was going to be out a few more weeks, now it has become official. INJURY UPDATE: Kobe Bryant was examined tonight & still has pain and swelling in his left knee. Examined again in approximately 3 weeks. — Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 29, 2014…

  14. Report: Kobe Bryant out another two weeks to month with knee fracture

    Jan 28, 2014, 10:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    We know him, if it was just a matter of playing through pain, Kobe Bryant would be back. But it’s not. He has a fractured lateral tibial plateau — the bone at the top of the shin that connects to the knee — and until the bone heals properly Kobe can’t return. Which means he…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EST

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  16. ProBasketballTalk’s mid-season awards: Durant for MVP, Carter-Williams for ROY

    Jan 27, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Charlotte Bobcats

    We are at the NBA’s mid-season — it takes that long to really start to get a line on the NBA’s award season. Guys get hot early then fade, and you can bet some guys will make a push the second half of the season (remember J.R. Smith for Sixth Man of the Year last…

  17. The Extra Pass: Kobe’s thoughts on Carmelo Anthony to L.A. speculation, plus Sunday’s recaps

    NBA All-Star Bryant of the Lakers and All-Star Anthony of the Knicks laugh during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    by Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – When Carmelo Anthony scored a jaw-dropping 62 points in a win over the Bobcats on Friday, he didn’t just set a Knicks franchise record. He took something that belonged to Kobe Bryant. The Madison Square Garden arena record, since the building opened its fourth incarnation in 1968, was set…

  18. LaMarcus Aldridge thinks he should have been an All-Star starter

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:53 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA coaches and players were voting for who got to be an All-Star Game starter, LaMarcus Aldridge would be a lock in the West. But the fans wanted to see other guys (Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love is your West starting frontcourt) so Aldridge will again be selected by the coaches…

  19. Dwight Howard’s popularity decline as measured in All-Star fan votes

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:01 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Dallas Mavericks

    When the surprise announcement came that Kevin Love and Blake Griffin had leapfrogged Dwight Howard to become All-Star Game starters this season — leaving the Rockets’ big man for the coaches to pick as a reserve — my first thought was “that’s a huge Lakers fans base that he pissed off.” They took their vote…

  20. Watch LaMarcus Aldridge drop 44 on Denver (VIDEO)

    Jan 24, 2014, 1:10 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    LaMarcus Aldridge was good in the first half Thursday night, scoring 14 points but needing 14 shots to get there. So at the half Denver coach Brian Shaw decided not to make any changes, leaving J.J. Hickson (primarily) on an island with Aldridge. That strategy backfired. In the second half Aldridge dropped 30 points on…

  21. Damian Lillard splits Denver defense, then throws it down. Hard. (VIDEO)

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Denver is not exactly a good defensive team, they miss JaVale McGee or anyone who might protect the rim. Damian Lillard took advantage of that Thursday night with a monster dunk. Denver’s players had a front row seat for what was the dunk of the night. Portland went on to win 110-105.

  22. Nuggets have no answer for LaMarcus Aldridge, fall to Trail Blazers

    Jan 24, 2014, 4:22 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    This is how a coaching adjustment can change a game. In the first half, Ty Lawson was getting into the lane and carving up the Trail Blazers — he had 13 points, nine assists and led Denver to 67 first half points. Portland was getting its offense from LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 14 points in…

  23. Thursday night NBA grades: Night of the power forward

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:03 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what NBA players could play in the NFL… Only power forwards make the list tonight. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. He’s the best power forward in the game right now. Better than Kevin Love (Aldridge is a better and more interested defender), better…

  24. We know the starters, so who should be the All-Star reserves?

    Jan 23, 2014, 8:27 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Your job is done fans. You picked the NBA All-Star Game starters. Well done. Now the job of picking the reserves falls to the NBA’s coaches. Well, really whoever the coaches delegate the job to — an assistant coach, the video coordinator, the equipment manager, someone working the beer concession line — but the coach…

  25. LeBron, Curry, Kobe voted All-Star Game starters — but Kobe doesn’t want to play

    Jan 23, 2014, 7:25 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Bryant of the Lakers and All-Star Anthony of the Knicks laugh during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    You voted for them, so here they are — your 2014 NBA All-Star Game starters: EASTERN CONFERENCE Backcourt: Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat), Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers) Frontcourt: LeBron James (Miami Heat), Paul George (Indiana Pacers), Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks) WESTERN CONFERENCE Backcourt: Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) Frontcourt: Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder),…
