The San Antonio Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge have had a disappointing run together so far after it appeared to be one of the better signings on paper. Aldridge has struggled to find a star role after being one of the better power forwards when on the Portland Trail Blazers.
ESPN reports Aldridge said the following about talking to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about this.
“It was me kind of being blunt about it, and being kind of forward. He was open to it. I kind of just spilled my heart about how I felt about how things were, and how things had been going.
I think he was kind of caught off guard. I don’t think he really had noticed [that I was unhappy]. But once I said it, he was great about listening, and it was good from there. I felt like I wasn’t really fitting into the system as best I could. I wasn’t really helping like I felt I could.”
Aldridge has to deliver a great season with competition stronger than ever.
