Lamarcus Aldridge treats Blazers fans with pass to nobody

It’s been three seasons since LaMarcus Aldridge put on a Trail Blazers jersey, plenty of time to work out the nerves of a return trip to Portland.

Or maybe not?


That’s fun for the home crowd.

To be fair, Aldridge found a wide open Leon Wood on the sideline. It’s just that Wood was wearing a black and gray NBA official uniform, not a black and gray San Antonio Spurs jersey.  And Wood, being a referee, let the ball sail into the third row.

Aldridge was quick with the universal self-tap on his chest signaling “My bad, guys.”

Yeah, LaMarcus. We know.
