Twitter reacts to LaMarcus Aldridge’s decision to skip Phoenix and head to San Antonio
The news of the day may just be the news that underscores the Suns’ summer in 2015: LaMarcus Aldridge spurns Phoenix in favor of San Antonio. Though many may have predicted Aldridge’s decision to join the Spurs as a likely outcome, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t sting any less that the Suns have fallen short in their bid to lock up perhaps the most coveted free agent of the offseason.
Below we take a look at some of the reaction on Twitter following Aldridge’s choice to skip the Valley and head for more familiar pastures in Texas.
I'm happy to say I'm going home to Texas and will be a Spur!! I'm excited to join the team and be close to my family and friends.

Now Tim Duncan will have to sacrifice 75% of salary he still deserves so Spurs can give LaMarcus max, keep team intact. Listening, Kobe?

Suns, by all accounts, made a really strong impression on LMA and gave themselves a real shot. Tough blow for them.

For those inquiring about the future of the #LMA banner…Our city has one of the best recycling programs in the country.

Honestly there is nothing in free agency the Suns can do now to make them a playoff team so go with what you have and develop young guys
