LaMarcus Aldridge Says He Should've Been An All-Star Starter

LaMarcus Aldridge is having a career year, but he still won't be starting in the 2014 NBA All-Star game. He's used to it by now, but his teammates, and even his own mother were a little less calm about it. 

“I’ve kind of gotten used to those things happening,” Aldridge told Blazersedge afterwards, when asked about missing out on a starting spot. “Everybody around me was more upset than me. I came in tonight and [Nicolas Batum] was pretty fired up about it. My mom was pretty heated about it. Me, I was like, ‘OK, this is happening again.’” 

“I think I definitely should have been a starter,” Aldridge told Blazersedge. “But it’s over with now, basically.”

Aldridge seems like he's more fitting for a starting spot than Blake Griffin, but the fans like flashy plays; and that isn't Aldridge's style. He'll surely be voted in by the coaches as a reserve, but the chip on his shoulder got even bigger yesterday when he was left out of the starting 5.
