LaMarcus Aldridge

The NBA has announced San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge has been named to the league’s All-NBA Second Team. The honor marks his fifth career All-NBA selection. Aldridge also earned Second Team honors in 2015, while being selected to the Third Team in 2011, 2014 and 2016.

Aldridge is one of just seven players in the league to be named to an All-NBA team at least five times since 2011, along with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook.

Selected as an All-Star for the sixth time in his career, Aldridge averaged 23.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.20 blocks in 33.4 minutes while shooting .510 (687-1,347) from the floor and .837 (334-399) from the free throw line during the 2017-18 season. The 12-year veteran was the only Spur to average at least 12 points while appearing in more than 10 games, making San Antonio the first team to make the NBA Playoffs with only one player averaging 12-or-more points since the 1953-54 Minneapolis Lakers (George Mikan).

Aldridge scored double figures in 73 games, leading the team in scoring 59 times. The former Texas Longhorn is one of only five Spurs in franchise history to lead the team in scoring at least 50 times in a single season, joining Tim Duncan, George Gervin, Kawhi Leonard and David Robinson.
