LaMarcus Aldridge On Destruction Of Spurs: 'It Doesn't Feel Real'

Ben Golliver of SB Nation's Blazersedge routinely writes the most lovely dispatches from media row at Portland Trail Blazers home games.

Afterwards, Aldridge looked less like himself after his most recent career-high and much more like Brandon Roy on the day after his famous 52-point explosion against the Phoenix Suns. Stunned by his own accomplishment. Proud as hell. A little bit drunk off the adrenaline rush. A blissful sense of accomplishment you don't see often anywhere outside a locker room: a combination of exhaustion, excitement, euphoria and disbelief.
