LaMarcus Aldridge on playoffs, Durant
Portland Trail Blazers star LaMarcus Aldridge joined the show to talk about his big night against the Rockets in Game 1 of their series and more.
Aldridge and Dan discussed the Rockets’ defensive weaknesses in Game 1. Dan said he scored so many in part because the Rockets’ defense is flawed. But Aldridge said that the Rockets do play D – Dwight Howard clogs the lane and you can get your shot blocked.
Aldridge looked back at hosting Kevin Durant at Texas several years ago. Aldridge said he knew he was good … but not this good.
Dan asked Aldridge who’s better – LeBron or Durant? Aldridge basically wouldn’t answer — even though Dan pushed him on it.
Aldridge also invited Dan to stay in his guest house when we visit Portland this summer.
