LaMarcus Aldridge Deletes His Twitter Account — That Should Turn The Tide
As you know, NBA championships are won because key players delete their social media accounts. What? They're not? Then why did the Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge rid himself of Twitter on Monday night?
It may have been the internet equivalent of throwing a chair, or perhaps Gregg Popovich made him do it. Whatever -- Aldridge, who was 2x9 from the floor for 5 points with 3 turnovers in 25 minutes, laid an egg in the role in which he was supposed to make up for the absence of Tim Duncan (sitting out with a sore knee).
His defense wasn't very special either.

And so he did what all the great ones have done down through history when they hit a rough patch -- delete their social media presence. Dr. J did it. So did Bob Cousey, Jim Thorpe, and Julius Caesar.
