PBT Extra: One-on-one with LaMarcus Aldridge, talking Blazers’ playoff chances


NEW YORK — The ultimate sign of how much LaMarcus Aldridge believes in Portland came when he injured his left thumb — he put off needed surgery to keep playing this season.

PBT caught up with Aldridge All-Star Weekend to talk about that belief and what the Blazers need to do in the playoffs. It may come down to the defense the Blazers play, and we talk about that with the All-Star big man as well.
