LaMarcus Aldridge game?

Post by Guest on Tue Oct 25, 2011 4:45 pm

According to the Oregonian, LA plans to host an exhibition game at the Chiles Center on Nov. 6th.
Before the NBA lockout wiped away the first two weeks of the regular season — and reportedly more — the Trail Blazers were scheduled to play the Phoenix Suns Nov. 6. at US Airways Center.

But it appears the Suns' home arena will be taking a back seat to the Chiles Center that day.

According to source with knowledge of the talks, LaMarcus Aldridge and the University of Portland are ironing out "contractual details" to hold an exhibition game Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Chiles Center.

Although the source cautioned that "nothing is certain at this point," it appears the sides are close to finalizing the deal that Aldridge teased Monday afternoon on Twitter.

Besides a few tweets from Aldridge on Twitter, no formal announcement has been made regarding Aldridge's exhibition game. But the power forward said on Twitter that three players (Kevin Durant, Wesley Matthews and Jamal Crawford) have agreed to play and that he would announce more details later this week.

The Chiles Center, which seats 4,852, was offered to Aldridge by UP men's basketball coach Eric Reveno via Twitter.

Here is the link if you want to see the nice picture of Coach Reveno: Link.

Ha! Now it's official: Link
PORTLAND, OR (October 31, 2011) – On Sunday, November 6, LaMarcus Aldridge of the Portland Trailblazers will host the Rip City Basketball Classic, bringing together teammates and friends on the campus of the University of Portland for an evening of friendly competition and celebration for a good cause. Benefiting organizations include Breast Cancer Awareness, Providence/St. Vincent’s Cardio Vascular Institute and New Avenues for Youth. The charity basketball showcase will take place at the University’s Chiles Center, and include the talents of Aldridge, Brandon Roy, Jeff Pendergraph, Raymond Felton, Wesley Matthews, Steve Blake, Kevin Durant, Josh Howard, TJ Ford, Jamal Crawford and more.

Tickets for the Rip City Basketball Classic will go on sale Tuesday, November 1 at 11 a.m. at the Chiles Center box office, located on campus outside the arena at 5000 N. Willamette Blvd., and on the web at www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets are priced at $50 for lower level sideline seats, $40 for upper level sideline seats, $25 for upper level end zone bleacher seats, and $100 for courtside seating. Tip off is at 7:30 p.m. on November 6, doors open at 6:30 p.m.

A 2006 first round draft pick (2nd overall), Aldridge has actively embraced the Portland community by supporting a number of charitable events throughout the season. Aldridge’s community service includes advocacy for health-related programs such as breast cancer awareness programs and cardio vascular research initiatives. LaMarcus is also a supporter of enrichment initiatives that enhance academics, athletics and youth leadership.

“Portland has been my home for over five years and I really enjoy giving back to the community whenever I can,” said Aldridge. “The Rip City Basketball Classic allows me to support my favorite local causes, while also giving fans an exciting night of basketball.”

Those purchasing tickets in person at the Chiles Center box office will receive a complimentary ticket to the University of Portland men’s basketball team’s Nov. 4 exhibition game versus Concordia-Irvine. The Pilots begin the season coming off of back-to-back 20 win seasons for the first time in program history.

Tickets a little steep for you? Hint: There's a women's game that afternoon and if you go in the band's storage space and crouch behind the tubas no one will see you...

Seems pretty like a cheap thing to do when the proceeds go to charity... Rolling Eyes
