Before the opening tip of Sunday’s game pitting the Portland Trail Blazers against the Houston Rockets, current Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge walked over to the broadcast table with one thing on his mind – being the best.
Aldridge crept up on current Rockets broadcaster and Trail Blazers legend Clyde Drexler and told him that he was coming for all of his postseason records.
Of course, Aldridge was just joking as the two shared friendly banter, but little did either know that in just a matter of hours, records would indeed fall.
“When I walked by him I said ‘I’m coming for you’ and I meant in every stat possible,” said Aldridge. “He said I still have some work to do, but he said I could do it. I was joking with him about trying to break all of his records.”
Aldridge poured in 46-points during the Blazers overtime loss, though obviously would have preferred to do so in a winning effort.
