LaMarcus Aldridge answered speculation and his commitment to the Spurs

Hints of leaving the San Antonio Spurs is been obvious for LaMarcus Aldridge. With the series of posting to Twitter as recently, he replied quickly and emoji to Lillard.

In an interview with the NBA.com, he said it joked and he’s willing to finish his career in San Antonio.

I actually didn’t mind it. I was bored. I did it. So, I don’t regret it. You can’t do anything these days. [The emoji] was like, “Oh, I see it.” That was it.

The forward also added he wouldn’t mind if he stays in the Alamo City for the rest of his career or either in Portland as both cities had a lot of good memories to him.

As I think about it, I think I would be cool with it ending in two places, either with San Antonio or in Portland. I think either one would be fine with me. I feel like I’ve made some good memories in San Antonio. I feel like I’m in a really good family in San Antonio. They understand me. I understand them. So, I like that. I feel I have a lot of history in Portland. So, going back there to finish would be fine also. I’m perfectly fine with finishing my career in San Antonio riding it out until my next chapter, or if things have to change there, and if they decide to go young, then I wouldn’t mind going to Portland.

Aldridge is looking to play right away as season put on suspension after the coronavirus disease hit the USA. He also added that he put himself getting fit, keep in form.

I feel like we were trying to figure it out. I had been out a few games. I was all of a sudden fresh. We’re all just trying to do what we can to win. I think if it plays out the rest of the way, we have as good of a chance as anyone to be in that eighth spot. That eighth spot doesn’t have to be a crazy record this year. So, I think that makes it even more possible to go on a little run at the end and try to get in there.

Asking for his commitment to the franchise of San Antonio Spurs, Aldridge doesn’t understand why he was asked that constantly.

I don’t know why. I have no clue. I’ve done nothing but try to give what I can and try to do everything I can to help us win, try to do what I can for the team to help the team grow. I’ve tried to change my game to make the team better. I started really shooting 3’s this year to try to make us better and open up the floor for DeMar [DeRozan]. So, it’s like I don’t know why it happens that way. But I’ve been just fully committed.
