    Oregon Live: Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge on telling mom of All-Star snub: 'She will be hurt'
    “Oh man,’’ Aldridge said, looking skyward. “I don’t even want to talk to her. She will be hurt. She will take this a lot harder than me.’’

    SLAM: LA to L.A. Rejected
    "Head-to-head, January 17, against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Aldridge won the game and match-up against Love going for 37 and 12 to Love’s 22 and 17. January 20, nationally televised game, Aldridge leads the Portland Trail Blazers to victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Aldridge finishes with 28 and 8 while Blake Griffin ended with 20 and 18 off of 6-17 from the field. Then, to really make my case, Tuesday night Aldridge exploded for a 40-point ,11-rebound performance in a rout of the Spurs. Duncan finished with 15 and 7."

    Oregon Live: The LaMarcus Aldridge All-Star snub: Aldridge understands, but Andre Miller doesn't
    “It’s all publicity and hype,’’ Miller said. “The league don’t appreciate the blue collar workers. They don’t appreciate that. They make their money off the high-flyers ... That’s a slap in the face to LA.’’

    Oregon Live: Trail Blazers part ways with center Chris Johnson and expect Marcus Camby back within two weeks
    "Johnson was signed to a 10-day contract on Jan. 24 as part of an injury exception the Blazers were granted following Camby’s left knee surgery. The exception is valid only if the injured player is out for two weeks."

    True Hoop: Not A Hollywood Ending
    "How amazing is ex-Blazers GM Kevin Pritchard? The team's two best players go down, and a third emerges as a double-double monster and leader of a playoff-caliber team. On sheer production, Aldridge is on the bubble, especially when you factor in how he started the season (and, for that matter, his career). And it sure doesn't help that his team is middling and plays games that start incredibly late for a lot of voters. However, here's what you're missing: All-Star games are about stellar plays, a good hunk of which are lobs. Not sure anybody finishes more lobs than this long, fast leaper. It would have been pretty."

    Ball Don't Lie: The Clippers gave up their biggest fan's seat to another
    "It's tempting to say everyone can make-up here, but I'm not so sure this event will be forgotten by all parties. Darrell has given his adult life to the Clippers, boosting their profile around the league (and particularly on the Internet). No matter what circumstance made it so he didn't have the ticket for this game, the man has done enough for the franchise to earn a bit of charity.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.4
    "Monta Ellis: 10-25 FG (46%), 3-3 FT (100%), 1 three, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO; Ellis has struggled with his shooting lately but was fine last night. He didn’t make the cut for the All-Star team and might have some extra motivation because of that."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Better and closer won't be enough to quell the grumbling by voices from the courtside season-ticket holders to the concession-stand workers that the Lakers need to do something. Better and closer won't change the fact that it's February and the Lakers have twice as many losses as the Spurs."
