Dirk Nowitzki’s step-back with the kick. LeBron James’ tomahawk slam. Kobe Bryant’s death stare. Stephen Curry on Vine. When people think of NBA stars, a few signature moves are engrained in their mind from having seen them countless times, to the point where you could point which player was doing what based simply on their silhouette. If all goes according to San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s plan, LaMarcus Aldridge’s jumper from the left block could be that next iconic image we see over and over again for years to come.

Despite being the marquee free agent of the summer of 2015, Aldridge is not a household name. He spent nine seasons of obscurity in Portland, racking up accolades and All-Star appearances while being overshadowed by the likes of Brandon Roy and Damian Lillard. The move to San Antonio means he plays in another small market, but one with a few more recent championship banners hanging from the rafters and a chance to gradually grow into the leadership role with the trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili still on board, not to mention fellow cornerstone and Jordan Brand athlete Kawhi Leonard.

When Aldridge signed with Jordan Brand prior to the start of last season, it wasn’t some sort of earth-shattering moment. Prior to his move, Aldridge was known mostly in the sneaker world for his hot Nike Air Max Hyperposite exclusives (and even back then all I could talk about was his jumper). It was just another acquisition to add more depth to a roster that already had Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook and Leonard. His bio is even missing from the Jordan Family page on Nike’s website. But the move to San Antonio and his home state of Texas will only shine a spotlight on Aldridge; the pressure will be there to continue the Spurs dynasty.

In other words, get ready to see plenty of pictures of Aldridge rocking Jordans both new and retro from his favorite spot. As somebody who had to track him a little bit this past season because he was wearing Js, it was amazing and almost hypnotic to see him in the same pose over and over with mechanical precision. Yeah, considering who Aldridge is going to be replacing eventually, he made the right move. Enjoy Pictures Of LaMarcus Aldridge Shooting Jumpers In Jordans.
