Aldridge stresses he's happy with Spurs

It's no secret that National Basketball Association stars have egos, and I've always pegged Aldridge as a good guy until he bolted for San Antonio due to issues with management and his unwillingness to play second fiddle to Lillard.

The Spurs as an organization are not very open, so the truth inside the team's thinking has never been easy to understand because they simply do not engage anyone in rumor-related conversation.

"I talk to [coach Gregg Popovich] daily and he's always telling me that I'm doing great", Aldridge said. They don't work out more often than not, and are rarely serious.

LaMarcus Aldridge is unhappy.

When Aldridge left the Blazers, one of the reasons why he did this was Damian Lillard's emergence as the face of the franchise. While he saw improvement to things such as an increase in field goal percentage and blocks, in just one season in San Antonio in comparison to his final season in Portland, there was a drastic decrease in stats such as points, field goal attempts and rebounds.

Back in 2015, Aldridge signed with the Spurs as the club pitched him to be the centerpiece of the Spurs in the future along side with Kawhi Leonard. Either way, it forces the Wizards into ramp up their expectations while they try to get what they can out of Aldridge before he starts to slow down. The latest buzz from the rumor mill suggests that two top teams are engaged in a possible deal involving the two best players in the league.

In addition, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (calf) was listed as doubtful on the Bucs' final injury report Saturday. Thus, I firmly believe Anderson will electrify, finishing with over 250 yards and three TDs. "That was a difference maker".

He says he is getting "a lot more comfortable" in San Antonio's system this year as well. It is said that the Spurs are not happy with Aldridge's performance during the last season.

At the same time, don't take the word of , a local reporter in San Antonio, as gospel.

With all these reports, a Cousins move to Spurs would be a clear option for the team. To do this he will need more than they have.

After a 120-90 loss to Golden State, Aldridge shut his social media accounts down. Sports fans are passionate, and sometimes that passion turns to anger that gets directed at athletes who we sometimes forget are human beings.

From his mouth, he seems to be happy about the way the situation has played out. He'd be even more of an outsider anywhere else.

The Detroit Pistons ended last season in defeat at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, but one of the biggest mismatches the Cavs used against them was Kevin Love. After all, the best way to win a fan's heart is with a big shiny ring.
