Portland Trail Blazers star LaMarcus Aldridge on Thursday sounded like a player who isn't ready to leave Portland. The impending free agent said he hasn't discussed his options yet, but he admitted that his nine seasons in Portland is a hard thing to ignore. "Of course I love being here, and I'm thankful for everything this city has given me, thankful for my time here,'' Aldridge said. "It's been an amazing nine years and of course I'm not trying to make that end.'' Oregonian
Teams are eligible to start recruiting Aldridge on July 1. He said he doesn't intend to make his decision a drawn out process. "I'm definitely not one to prolong things or drag it out,'' Aldridge said. "That's not really my personality." Oregonian
