LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to let out all his aggression on the Houston Rockets. Through two games, he is averaging 44.5 points. That’s a lot of points and Aldridge is not really known for being very angry on the court, but that is just plain mean. Aldridge could lead Portland to their first playoff series victory since ‘Sheed and Arvydas Sabonis were around.
Playoff aggression is nothing new. Players get heated even more so then they do in the regular season. They are trying to win at all costs. I have no problem with guys taking hard fouls. Just make sure you do so before someone gets in the air. That’s when really bad stuff starts happening.
