LaMarcus Aldridge retires


Recommended Posts

I remember watching him work on his mid-range from a stool during his injury while at Texas. Seemed to work out pretty well for him in the long run. Shame he didn’t get a ring. 
 

Hook ‘em to a lifetime Horn.

I wonder if he would get a ring if Brooklyn wins it this season.  Even if he doesn’t feel like he earned it.

I'm about 100% sure he would. 

I've dealt with an arrhythmia/arrhythmias since I was 18 and it is definitely scary shit. Being afraid that you're going to have a heart attack or your heart is just going to stop beating can cause some serious dread. The science for diagnosing it and treating it isn't super exact, either, and his case seems to support that. Hopefully it's nothing too serious and he can live a long, healthy life.

I hope that right now CDC and Beard are working up a job offer for LaMarcus. Bring him back home to Texas, give him a sweet gig and a nice salary and name him Alumni Coordinator or something. 

Both he and KD need to be a prominent part of UT MBB long after their playing days are over.

One of my all time favorites and a soft spoken, super nice guy. 🤘

 

and yes get him on the 40 ASAP. 

Agreed. Solid NBA player that you really only heard about when he was on the court. Not flashy, but dependable. And he had some games when he would get in the zone and would just take over. Just looked it up and he's 47th on the all time NBA scoring list.

Basketball Reference has him at 50% chance of making the Hall of Fame.  Seems about right.

  • 5-time All-NBA (2 2nd team, 3 3rd team)
  • 7-time All-Star
  • 3 top-10 MVP finishes
  • 47th Career Points
  • 62nd Career Rebounds
  • 68th Career Blocks
  • 61st Career PER
  • 55th Career win shares

Really solid NBA career.  The All-NBA awards are especially nice.

One of the all time great Texas basketball players. In his prime he was a top 15 player, maybe even a top 10 player. Great career. If there’s anyone who should be frustrated by Kawhi’s BS in San Antonio, it’s LA. He did him dirty.
