LaMarcus Aldridge Writes Letter Thanking Blazers Fans

In case you missed it while you were celebrating Indpendence Day, the NBA’s top free agent in LaMarcus Aldridge decided to sign with the San Antonio Spurs on a four-year 80 million dollar deal. Earlier today Aldridge released a letter he wrote thanking the Blazers and their fans for all the support throughout his years in Porltand. The letter goes:

“Dear Rip City, Thank you!

“Those two words on a page don’t begin to express the gratitude I have for the opportunity the entire Trail Blazers organization, my teammates, the media, and you fans gave me. The past nine years have been a blessing, and I will take all of the valuable memories with me as I head back home.

“As I’m sure you can respect, my decision was a very personal one but not one I took lightly. Although I will be wearing a different uniform the next time I come back to Portland, please know that I will always hold my time in a Blazers uniform near and dear to my heart.

“Your friend, LA”

During his tenure with the Blazers, Aldridge averaged 19.4 points along with 8.4 rebounds and 1 block per game. With Aldridge out of the picture in Portland, many expect the team to fall out of the playoffs. This is your chance – my message to other Western Conference teams.
