Anybody who knows Aldridge, or anybody who has even casually spent time around him during his nine years here, has a good feeling they know the answer to the question. Aldridge is coming back to Portland. Oregonian

But those people don't understand how important it is for Aldridge to be comfortable. If he signs a maximum contract for another team, there will be huge expectations, attention, and obligations to fulfill ... all while having to get acclimated to a new team. I presented my theory to Aldridge on Thursday, and he didn't agree or disagree. "I'm definitely comfortable here, but this is all I know,'' Aldridge said. "I can't say I would be uncomfortable in those environments you talk about, but I can say I'm comfortable here, because I've been here so long and I understand this market, this city, this organization. So there's that extra level of comfort here.'' Oregonian

A blimp of a Ford SUV came crashing down into the fan section of the game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Indiana Pacers at the Moda Center in Portland. The promotional floating car, which game go-ers are used to seeing soar around the stadium, lost some of its inflation - likely due to a puncture - before falling into Section 209 of the arena.

New Orleans (8-8) used one of its two open roster spots to sign Cunningham, who worked extensively with Pelicans Coach Monty Williams when both were in Portland during Cunningham’s rookie year of 2009-10. That relationship was one reason the Villanova product was enthusiastic about signing with New Orleans. “It’s a blessing,” Cunningham said. “Coming from Portland my rookie year, he was a coach I looked up to. He taught me the ropes, taught me how to be a professional. Taught me what you need to do to be successful in this league. Clearly, he has the formula. Coming out of the situation I was in, I couldn’t ask for a better situation than this right here.” NBA.com
