The Blazers Power Forward had been with Nike dating back to his days at the University of Texas. Aldridge has worn mostly Hyperposites for the last few years, including PEs like the one in this article. LaMarcus had recently been spotted wearing Retro Jordans on-court, including the ‘He Got Game’ 13, which was a good sign of the JB deal happening.
Aldridge joins a slew of NBA players representing the Jumpman logo including Jabari Parker, Victor Oladipo, Joe Johnson, as well as the faces of the brand in Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and Blake Griffin.
