About LaMarcus Aldridge
Aldridge was drafted 2nd overall in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls, only to have his draft rights traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for their pick, Tyrus Thomas and Viktor Khryapa, shortly after. The Bulls acquired the pick from the New York Knicks in the 2005 Eddy Curry trade.
Aldridge missed the first seven games of the 2006–07 NBA season due to off-season shoulder surgery, but returned ahead of schedule due in part to an injury to fellow rookie teammate Brandon Roy. Aldridge made an immediate impact on offense, averaging 8.4 points on 54% shooting from the field through his first 14 games. After the loss of starting center Joel Przybilla in February 2007 to season-ending knee surgery, Aldridge was awarded the starting center position and improved his scoring to 14.7 points alongside 8.0 rebounds per game in the month of March. This placed him second in the voting for the Western Conference Rookie of the Month to Roy. On March 31, 2007, in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers, Aldridge was taken to Providence Hospital in Portland for shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat. He was diagnosed with Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome on April 9, 2007, and missed the remaining eight games of the 2006–07 season. Aldridge started 22 games his rookie season.
Aldridge was one of six players named to the 2007 NBA All-Rookie first team; he tied for fifth place along with Toronto Raptors player Jorge Garbajosa.
Aldridge increased his play in his sophomore year, with career highs in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals, and finished third in voting for the Most Improved Player award. During this season, Aldridge had injury troubles due to plantar fasciitis, which caused him to miss games from December 11 to December 18, 2007. After the time missed, Aldridge still had some trouble with the foot but was able to play effectively.
Aldridge further emerged as a player and a leader in December 2010 after Brandon Roy was out due to knee problems. Aldridge was awarded the NBA Player of the Week twice, for January 17–23 and February 7–13. He scored a career-high 42 points against the Chicago Bulls on February 7, 2011. On March 2, Aldridge received his first NBA Player of the Month award. Aldridge is only the third Trail Blazer to do so, along with Clyde Drexler (1991) and Kelvin Ransey (1981). Aldridge came second in voting for the Most Improved Player award behind Kevin Love. LaMarcus Aldridge was voted to the All-NBA Third Team with 135 votes.
