The San Antonio Spurs have been the stable team in the NBA that many other franchises have tried to model themselves after. However, there appear to be some potential issues stirring up with the Spurs. According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, veteran forward LaMarcus Aldridge is unhappy with his role with the team.
“The Spurs will see if this team outperforms expectations. If it doesn’t, they should take calls on Aldridge. He’s really good, and there are a lot of impatient owners chasing immediate gratification.”
This comes in wake of the reports that San Antonio may try to trade Aldridge if the team doesn’t meet their high level of expectations this upcoming season. On top of that, there is already a team source that has refuted that report by stating that these claims were false. It’s hard to believe that there doesn’t lie some truth to the matter involving Aldridge.
Aldridge initially made the move to the Spurs given the premise that he would take over the reigns once Tim Duncan stepped away. With Duncan retiring, the 31-year-old will have a chance to prove that he can handle that responsibility next season. If not, there could be a lot of shifting ahead for the Spurs centering around the five-time All-Star
