  • Had a decent career and was the closest to 20,000 points in regular season games. Was just 2 or 3 games away from the milestone. Had a decent shot (although not guaranteed) at a title this year, hopefully he recovers well.

  • The young man has to go and have surgery or he goes to herbal doctors and get help for his healing his body I would suggest that he leaves United States for about a year and go to Africa and find herbal Doctor who can help him and learn how to heal his body because this country is behind on those things God bless him and keep him safe and his family

  • Stephen A you was just criticizing him for not playing against the Sixers. That’s why you should just shut up.

  • Didn't win a championship but extending the spurs playoff streak and tying NBA's longest consecutive playoffs appearance (22) is no small feat. LA is major factor in stretching that streak. So as a spur fan, thank you for choosing the SAS, LA. Despite what the naysayers say, your time in san antonio wasn't wasted. It will be a long time before a team breaks that record if ever it even happens. (Longest active streak now is 8 (houston) and about to end this season). Got a lot of life to live yet. only 35 years young. Good luck with your life Aldridge!
