It was Christmas in July last Thursday when the moratorium on signing free agents lifted and Portland Trailblazer LaMarcus Aldridge signed a new max contract with the San Antonio Spurs.
I'm happy to say I'm going home to Texas and will be a Spur!! I'm excited to join the team and be close to my family and friends.

While the Power Forward announced via Twitter last weekend, one shouldn't believe it until the contract is signed. The Dallas Mavericks learned that Last week when Los Angeles Clipper and then Dallas Maverick and then back to Los Angeles Clipper DeAndre Jordan showed them anything is possible.
What will last week's shake ups across the league mean for next season here in San Antonio but also at other teams? Was there someone you hoped that the Spurs would have gone after?
