Even after LaMarcus Aldridge notched a double-double (10 points, 11 rebounds) for the first time as a Spur in the club’s 102-75 victory Friday over the Brooklyn Nets, he admitted he’s “not even close” to the player San Antonio signed.

“It’s not the same. I’m not the same person here that I was in Portland,” Aldridge said. “I don’t feel like they need me to be that person all the time. It’s learning how to be myself in the offense. I haven’t figured that out yet.”
