At the time, LaMarcus Aldridge had just made his Portland homecoming and was serenaded with a chorus of boos. Batum, noting that he didn’t chose to leave, said then that he hoped he would not face a similarly cold reunion. He echoed those feelings Thursday afternoon following the Hornets’ practice at the University of Portland. “Like I say, I got traded,” Batum said. “I didn’t (leave) by myself. I didn’t (leave) Rip City. So I hope I won’t get booed.”
“He was a really good teammate,” Damian Lillard said. “I always remember my rookie year and my second year, when it would get to five minutes or less in the game, he would always come tap me on my back and be like, ‘Dame, it’s your time. Take over the game.’ Just being so young and having somebody who’s been a part of this team come to me and have that much confidence, that always meant a lot to me. He was always that type of person. He was unselfish. Just a good dude to play with.”
