LaMarcus Aldridge Exclusive

LaMarcus Aldridge Exclusive


Here we go, our starting five is almost complete! LaMarcus is up next in our list and he was kind enough to take a couple of minutes before his first shooting session to talk to us.

KA: What’s up LMA! How is everything? Thanks for making room for us. Let’s get the ball rolling, now you’ve been in Utah for a whole season, what’s the feeling?

LMA: Well, Karina, as you know, I’m a pretty chill guy and so I like to do my own thing and Salt Lake City really is that type of town and I feel very comfortable and at peace here. As far as the team is concerned, my focus is always on winning, and that is where it always should be. Being here for more than a year now has made me realize how much the team changed and evolved while trying to stay competitive. This season is going to be great!

KA: So, what are you working on the most this off-season?

LMA: I always think of myself as a work in progress so I’m always looking to evolve. Obviously scoring is the best thing I do and I love doing that, but I’m focused on being a better defender for my teammates. As a scorer by trade I feel I need to be more effective like I was earlier in my career. Actually, I think with more playmakers around us, the pressure of the defense will be off because there are so many guys to guard and I think my numbers will go up again.

KA: Who do you think will take a step up this year?

LMA: My money is on Willie Trill Cauley-Stein, because that’s what he likes to be called. Haha Nah, for real, he looks poised and has a great role model in Marc Gasol since he is a defensive specialist, but he will be the first to tell you he is more than that and that he wants to be a complete center. His athletic ability is off-the-charts, he moves like a 3 or a 4 in a legit 7-1 frame. He can be crazy good and he will help us.

KA: LMA, thank you so much and good luck out there, ok?

LMA: See you guys!
