Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
The NBA playoffs were in full force this week, and our Sportsman this Week was dominant in carrying his team to a 3-1 series lead. LaMarcus Aldridge was an unstoppable force in leading the Portland Trailblazers to a 3-1 series lead against the Houston Rockets, including three OT games. His 35.3 PPG leads the NBA playoff scoring by a full five points (and obviously his team has needed all of them). In the three wins, he shoots 57% from the field with 12 boards and 3 blocks. His performance has certainly set the tone for Rip City and is worthy of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
